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.
Vampirism is a newly discovered viral illness whose initial stages spread as quickly as the flu. May has just turned seventeen and has become infected. She is the only vampire in her family and her neighborhood and, as such, her life changes dramatically. In her daily surroundings she is now seen as a monster: kids throw stones at her and she is bullied at work. However, May tries to adapt by following the rules and norms set by the government on infected citizens who wish to fit back into society.
While it definitely looks like they had more than a dollar, it is still a small budgeted independent film that looks awesome to me!
