Disney

Andrew Stanton’s ‘John Carter’ talk at Google.

 

I don’t know how I missed this, maybe it was more “I’ll watch it later” than missed, but I’m glad that I finally caught up with it. Some of that would be reminiscing the good old times, but it was fun to hear a new take on the production as well. I still want my Woola stuffy, but I am grateful the movie exists at all. – Jeff


A tiny bit of love from Disney ?

Perhaps it’s just accidental, but the iTunes movie page for John Carter OF MARS has a nice new banner. I know it’s from existing art we’ve seen but I thought it looked pretty good. If not Disney maybe someone at Apple did it. Either way I like it. – Jeff

The new banner –

Since I’ll most certainly be asked – we all know the Taylor Kitsch preview poster. I discovered the Dejah one online a while ago, I think it’s part of the original promo package but sadly never used. Tars seems a given to me as a character poster so I faked one up. It’s far from perfect and I really shouldn’t be taking the time to do this. But I needed to. – Jeff 

 


Yet another kick at a new Flash Gordon

261047-197662-flash-gordonFlash Gordon is not really my favourite thing but I’d love to see a version that made me fall in love with it. I never really took to Hawk Men or Lion Men, I mean really, that’s the best you can do ? That’s not even trying. And it’s a little too Wizard of Oz too. (more…)


Barsoom by Three

Repost of a Repost of -There and back again: Repost of my John Carter LA adventure

In response to the recent return of John Carter rights to ERB inc it seemed appropriate to return to the that giddy first viewing – Jeff

Or – where the hell is Jeff ? Well, Jeff went to California to see John Carter and pogo around ECOF (Edgar Rice Burroughs fan con ) with his Barsoomian posse. A good time was had. After the ECOF my family and I stayed in LA and played for the rest of the week. So that’s where Jeff has been. Above you can see the wondrous swag hoisted upon us by the ECOF team as well some cool items from Disney that were handed out after the movie.

I arrived mid-day on the friday and seemed to be popular because I had pre-sold copies of my Strange Worlds books that people wanted me deliver to them. (more…)
