John Carter – the original one

In case you didn’t know ‘John Carter’ is based on ‘A Princess of Mars’ a 100 year old book written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I recently read the book for the first time and I was surprised at how much some of our most beloved sci-fi films (Star Wars, Avatar) have borrowed heavily from it. Anyway, if you’re a sci-fi fan what-so-ever you definitely need to read the book (download a free Kindle copy of it here) and check out the film which is looking better and better with each trailer I’ve seen.
