John Carter - In Theaters This Friday!

Most of you probably don't know this about me, but I am a HUGE Sci-fi fan. I love reading and watching about monsters, elfs, dwarfs, dragons, magic, foreign or fantasy worlds, etc. I have not yet read the books that the movie John Carter is based off of, but I am excited to see the movie in 3D at a pre-screening later tonight.

From Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”—a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.

What will you be watching at the movies this weekend?

I'm a big fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs, so I'll definitely be watching this. However, they should have called it "Barsoom" or something, since I agree with the critics that "John Carter" is a bit of a boring title.
