Oh no, I agree... I was going to say I really hope this does well at the box office for that reason. This material will be absolutely fresh for most people in the audience. I'm glad Disney spent the money to bring an entirely new sci-fi world to the big screen. I guess Avatar was that way too... but I just felt this movie was more complex.

There are absolutely elements that are similar to Avatar or Star Wars... but you also have to remember those movies took those elements from this story and not the other way around.

Last year my husband and I got a rare chance to take in a movie without the ol' kiddos. We walked in as the previews were starting. About midway up the aisle, my husband stops dead and just stares at the screen. Then he leans into me and whispers "It's John Carter!". I reply "Huh?". "John Carter is the reason I started to read for enjoyment. I read all his books when I was a kid."

So that evening I went home and picked up the first book. My husband and I normally have a differing opinion on what makes a good read. He can read through history after history, while I tend to like more light reading, and things that have happy endings (hey, what can I say, I'm a girlie-girl sometimes). I read the first book in about 2 nights of reading. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and immediately went onto the next and then the next. Great reads if you ask me.

As for the upcoming movie, we both are a bit concerned and excited. Exciting because we both like the stories and who doesn't like to see their favorite books come to life. Concerned because we can already see some major discrepancies and fallacies from just the previews. I mean, you can never expect the movies to get all the details, and usually you just go in knowing there will be some stuff that is left out, but this seems like they are going to "hollywood" it up way too much. Oh and that is not at all how I pictured the creatures of Mars to look. Tars Tarkas and his fellow green men look way too Jar-Jar Binks for my taste.

Regardless, I will be going to see it and I am still very excited. I just hope that I don't walk out feeling let down.


Oh and you guys should read the book. It's worth it and a quick read.

And this bears repeating. These books were on the forefront of science fiction.

Disney has put a 10 minute clip from the beginning of the movie online. If you're on the fence, watch this.

I'm pretty sure I'm seeing it on Friday. Like I said somewhere else in the thread, if we don't fill the theaters for stuff like this, all we're going to get is more Twilights, more remakes and "reimaginings" and probably less science fiction in general. Go see this. Go see Prometheus. It's the only way to get Hollywood to make the stuff we want them to make.

I have it in digital, although it is also on film for those Imaxes who so choose.

I enjoyed it, although most will find it derivative--even though, as mentioned here, it's actually the other way around. Dances With Wolves, Avatar, Stargate, the low budget fantasy from the 70s/80s (Krull, Beastmaster, Conan, etc.,.) all owe it to this material.

And, for the record, I want to cover Lynn Collins in chocolate syrup and lick until I die from diabetes. Just watching her is worth the price of admission.
