Disney released a new trailer for the upcoming “John Carter from Mars” movie – though it seems to be more of an introduction to the works themselves, vice a direct promo for the endeavor. Not quite sure what to make of it – I always had a soft spot for the series, but I suppose I’ll have to reserve judgement until the movie is released. Actually, a further discussion of the “relevance” of Mr. E.R. Burrough’s series can be found on IO9 (located here: http://io9.com/5881773/why-does-edgar-rice-burroughs-still-matter ), and makes for good reading.. though I wouldn’t wager the original readers put as much thought into it! Nonetheless, please do enjoy!
