Here's a synopsis of the first book from Wikipedia. I don't know if they are using this story for the first movie:

John Carter, a Confederate veteran of the American Civil War, goes prospecting in Arizona immediately after the war's end. Having struck a rich vein of gold, he runs afoul of the Apaches. While attempting to evade pursuit by hiding in a sacred cave, he is mysteriously transported to Mars, called "Barsoom" by its inhabitants. Carter finds that he has great strength and superhuman agility in this new environment as a result of its lesser gravity. He soon falls in with the Tharks, a nomadic tribe of Green Martians, as the planet's warlike, six-limbed, green-skinned inhabitants are known. Thanks to his strength and combat abilities, Carter rises to a high position in the tribe and earns the respect and eventually the friendship of Tars Tarkas, one of the Thark chiefs.

The Tharks subsequently capture Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium, a member of the humanoid red Martian race. The red Martians inhabit a loose network of city-states and control the desert planet's canals, along which its agriculture is concentrated. Carter rescues Dejah Thoris from the green men in a bid to return her to her people.

Subsequently Carter becomes embroiled in the political affairs of both the red and green men in his efforts to safeguard Dejah Thoris, eventually leading a horde of Tharks against the city-state of Zodanga, the historic enemy of Helium. Winning Dejah Thoris' hand, he becomes Prince of Helium, and the two live happily together for nine years.

However, the sudden breakdown of the Atmosphere Plant that sustains the planet's waning air supply endangers all life on Barsoom. In a desperate attempt to save the planet's inhabitants, Carter uses a secret telepathic code to enter the factory, bringing an engineer along who can restore its functionality. Carter then succumbs to asphyxiation, only to awaken back on Earth, left to wonder what has become of Barsoom and his beloved.

Yeah, I read many of these as a kid. Was really excited that it was going to make it to the big screen, but am now preparing myself for disappointment.

Good stuff, Mr. keg in kc.

These were/are great books. ERB was kind a cross between Charles Dickens and Stan Lee. It looks like Disney is staying true to the character. I mean, Carter's powers on Mars were basically obstinance and leaping real high.

I have to admit, though, that John Carter had phenomenal good fortune. Nobody's that fortunate. He made millions and got to go to Mars. Nowadays, a guy is lucky to find a clean, public restroom.

I've never read the books, but I'm going to go see it. If we don't go see the classic works done on the big screen, all we're going to end up with is more Twilights. I respect the fact that they're even trying it, even if they can't figure out how to market it.

Heres another story about how Disney has basically screwed the pooch marketing this thing.

They dropped the "Of Mars" off the title because they thought it would scare off women.

Is this going to be a 3D movie?

So far, I have been pretty unimpressed with the 3D movies with the exception of Avatar which was darn good, I thought. It looked as though that entire movie was shot with 3D in mind, though. Like that scene when the main guy and his squad or whatever first landed on the planet of the blue people ... before he was transformed into a blue guy and all by the lady who used to battle alien eggs and the mother alien badass with the acidic, green blood. That scene was shot down the length of the transport ship with tons of depth-of-field and it really worked. I like that sort of thing better than having hubcaps thrown at me. Also, I went to a special 3D movie in an IMAX theater in some museum one time that was a documentary about the wonders of the deep sea. At one point, the entire audience was swimming in 3D shrimp sperm. I could not stand that deal one bit. To this day, I shudder to think of what those poor fish have to put up with.

Anyhow, I was wondering if this was 3D? And, if so, are they going to do it right?

I'm tempted to see this but I probably wont unless it gets stellar reviews. I love the concept and the Frazetta paintings, but I can't take another CGI driven movie taking a dump on something that I used to think was cool.

Aside from the novels John Carter also made it into comic books.

I've collected comics for nearly 35 yrs now and though John Carter was never one of my Favorite Marvel comics(published in the late 70's)it did give you something Different to read from the typical super hero stuff.

I went thru my collection and pulled out a stack to reread to remember what the character was all about.
Character could be fun with todays special effects but still its such an unknown to so many people wtf invest in the attempt.

To anyone interested heres a link to a few of the old comics covers.
It was the art and covers that often jumped out at you back in those days.

Saw it tonight in 3D. I have not read the books, but I thought it was really good. Absolutely an epic adventure movie. That may be the only thing that hurts it really... people don't know what it's about, and there are a lot of characters in this entirely foreign world to keep up with, but I think Stanton balances it out pretty well, and adds in enough humor and action to keep it moving. Honestly I felt like it could've been longer, but you can't have a 3 hour movie. I want to say I enjoyed it more than Avatar, but it's probably too early to make a judgment like that. Not sure it's worth seeing in 3D though, but I'm not really a 3D fan.

Word of mouth around the internet is very positive.

The director is a huge John Carter fan so that bodes well.

Excited for this.
