Some John Carter movie clips

Here are some new clips from the forthcoming movie that were posted over at Cimorra, my favorite German-language old-school gaming blog.

Warhoons taking orders from an effete, arrogant Thern (who must have lost his wig)? You've got some 'splainin' to do, Stanton...

Apparently this is when, in the film version, John first realizes he is on Mars. This confirms my suspicion that John gets to Mars in some other fashion than how he does it in the book: basically reaching out with his mind at the moment of his "death" to his patron planet - the god of war, as he has always been a warrior, for many normal human lifetimes. I wonder if that pesky Thern is involved in this, too?

Kudos on the "many karads of empty space" line, as well as using the names "Jasoom" and "Barsoom".

I always liked Woola, and Carter's relationship with Woola. This is my favorite of the three clips; good stuff!

Is it me, or is Kitcsh channeling the voice and inflections of Blade Runner-era Harrison Ford?


  1. Wow. That first clip really had the vibe of an old sci-fi film from the 40s or 50s, or maybe on of the later "Sinbad" movies. Don't know if this will be worth full price at the theater, but a Sunday morning matinee... oh, yeah.

    Hey Al! Your words are balm for my soul! Thank you very much! :D
