When I was a teenager, I read the first five of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s John Carter novels in Swedish translation. They were exciting adventures on a fairy-tale Mars, even though I don’t think I would enjoy them to the same extent 35 years later. However, the idea of a properly done John Carter movie is appealing. There is one on the way, though so far we have only seen an almost poetic trailer — quite unlike what one would have expected for such a tale of never-ending derring-do.
Here is anyhow an amusing review of the trailer. It starts in a weird manner, but be patient and you’ll get to the proper stuff after a while.
