When I was a kid, most of my friends were big Tarzan movie fans. I was more into monster movies myself. And when it came to Edgar Rice Burroughs, I was always a big “John Carter” fan. Yes, by today’s standards, the story of a man who “dies” and is magically transported to Mars might not play for today’s young readers, but I’m sure they’ll do the story justice on the big screen (okay, I hope).
Description of the movie: Former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) is transported to Mars where he becomes part of a conflict between the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins), and it is now his job to save Barsoom (Mars) and its people.
