I reread the series a couple of years ago and still found it as engaging as when I was younger, Therefore you can imagine how ecstatic I was when I found out it was being made into a movie. Now as the movie opening date is now drawing nearer - March 9 (just one more sleeps lol) - there are posters all over the city which makes me happy as I've been looking forward to its big screen realization for a long time. Burroughs' characters are so unique and interesting I can only imagine what it will be like to see it 'come to life" so to speak plus with Taylor Kitsch as John Carter it just can't get any better. I loved Kitsch in The Bang Bang Club and he brought Gambit of X-Men to life like no other and when I eventually got around to watching FNL I was sucked in by his portrayal of Tim Riggins....so I expect Kitsch will bring something special to John Carter as well.
I tried to watch only the 3 initial JC trailers that came when the movie was announced so as not to spoil anything before I go to the theatre but then I caved and watched some of the newer ones which I've linked to below. Now I just can't wait until this movie's release. Put it his way it's being show in 3D and if I can't find it in 2D then I'm willing to brave getting a migraine and see it in 3D....so there ya have it.
Honestly I haven't been this excited about a movie since idk when. And you can bet I'm going back to Queen station to take some pics of "the wall" lol!
Oh if you didn't catch BT the past Wednesday June 7th Taylor Kitsch was on talking John Carter with Dina Pugliese and the interview just wasn't long enough imho. I should have gone down to the tv station and got TK to sign my book and 'eReader' copies (yes I have copies on my Kobo too) but alas I'm not the stalker type unfortunately.
