Yes, I put “of Mars” in the title, which is what the title of this movie should be. Well, here is our first look at the movie, and I have to say it doesn’t look bad… yet. I dig the music and I like seeing the Civil War era mixed in with the Mars landscape, keeping in tune with the original books by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
One thing I’m still not convinced of is the lead character being played by Taylor Kitsch. He looks more like John Carter’s son to me. Regardless, I’m still looking forward to this one. What do you think — blockbuster or bomb?

I’m in the same camp as you. Taylor Kitsch? Really?
It looks like that Guy Pearce Time Machine (which was not great) mixed with Clash of the Titans (also not great). Not too impressed so far. I’d like it to be good though. The property behind it is solid.
Let’s hope it’s a little better than the Time Machine!
