John Carter is lots of fun, but deviates a lot from the source material

Noah Wyle is John Carter of Mars

Disney’s John Carter is a film that’s based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’s “A Princess of Mars”. Or is it? The film deviates quite a bit from the source material, so fans of it should certainly check out the John Carter novels if they’re looking for a good read. The movie is a great amount of fun. The fantastic world of Mars, known to it’s natives as Barsoom, is a rich world full of amazing creatures, people, places and technology that will delight and entertain audiences of all ages.

This is a science fiction story, but based on a work so old that we’d barely started flying airplanes and driving automobiles when it was written, so it gives a perspective not seen in a modern work. The fantasy world seen in the movie, and within the pages of the John Carter stories, is one born not out of intentional ignorance of other planets as much modern science fiction is, but rather from a time when we really did not know much of anything of worlds outside of our own. The world of Barsoom is based off of ideas that astronomers from the early 20th century had about Mars. It’s not spaceships, computers and laser guns because this was all conceived in a world without knowledge of such things.

Saints Row The Third end sequence references Red Faction Guerrilla

Alec Mason based character in Saints Row The Third

In the end sequence to Saints Row The Third, the boss utters some lines which may sound familiar to some gamers. In fact most of this is word for word from the end sequence of Red Faction Guerrilla. How is it that such utterly different games can share a similar end game speech? Watch the clip to find out, but be warned, it contains spoilers for the end of both games.

This and other similarities exist because both games were developed by Volition.

Disney Releases Second Trailer For John Carter

Our interest of course began when we heard one of Pixar’s brightest was making his live action debut, but after the first trailer, we got excited.

Now Disney has released a second trailer, highlighting more action and far more Martian creatures. The first teaser contained a symphonic excerpt of “My Body Is A Cage” by Peter Gabriel, and this one is much more recognizable “Kashmir” originally recorded by Led Zepplin and preformed in this clip by the classical quartet Bond.

John Carter Trailer Looks Promising

When you hear “John Carter of Mars” do you think of Noah Wyle’s character from ER getting his ass to Mars? Me neither, but here’s a picture that will make sure you will…

ER's Noah Wyle is Doctor John Carter of Mars

Until a few days ago I had not heard of this character, but after Captain Genius brought this to my attention at our forums, this sounds like a great premise for this upcoming movie. Here’s the trailer for Disney’s John Carter which is due to be released in March of next year:

The film is written and directed by Andrew Stanton who wrote and directed many Pixar movies, including Wall-E, so it looks like it’s in good hands.

John Carter fiction dates back to 1911 with A Princess of Mars which has John Carter, an immortal man, traveling to Mars to have great adventures. Here’s hoping someone, anyone, says “2 weeks” in this movie…
