John Carter Quickie!


Reason for watching: This poster and this poster alone! Warrior Gambit? I'm so there! I didn't even need to watch a trailer or read reviews to watch this one.

Trivia:
1) Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins both acted in the Wolverine movie with Hugh Jackman. Lynn Collins looks virtually unrecognizable and super fit! She also looks Malaysian/Filipino with that hair colour and skin tone. XD

2) This movie has been in development hell for 79 years! But rejoice, as it looks a lot better now than it would have in 1931.


Princess Dejah Thoris

Synopsis from Wikipedia: The film is largely based on A Princess of Mars the first novel to feature the hero John Carter. In both the novel and film John Carter is a former American Civil War Confederate Army captain who is mysteriously transported to Mars, which is known to its inhabitants as Barsoom. In the course of his first adventures there Carter learns the planet is dying from the loss of its atmosphere and water. Only a peaceful alliance of its intelligent but volatile inhabitants can save all the species of Barsoom from extinction; he sets out to achieve that goal.

Verdict: So awesome and while some bits totally blew my mind away, a few bits were a li'l cheesy in true Disney fashion. A minor caveat though, I still LOVED. IT. SO. MUCH.

Now if I had seen this poster first, I would have certainly thought twice about watching this.

P/S: Am contemplating swapping my Gambit bloggy banner for a John Carter one instead!
