O.K. this John Carter movie looks sorta like a Star Wars rip-off. Why should I spend my money to go see a retread? I’m Keith Kelly. Stick around, and I’ll let you know why “John Carter” is worth a trip to theatre.
I’m going to confess right up front that I’ve been a fan of John Carter of Mars for over 40 years. The original novel was written way back in 1911, by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whom some of you may know by his more famous creation-Tarzan of the Apes.
I instantly fell in love with the swashbuckling adventures of Mr. Carter, his princess Deja Thoris, the landscapes of a dying planet Mars, the 4-armed 15 foot tall Tharks, and all the other great bits of imagination that soaked every page.
The film has been in development hell since the 1930’s-first as an animated version, then with stop-motion, then with an ever-increasing list of filmmakers trying to get a handle on the sweeping story. Its influences have been seen in everything from Flash Gordon, to Superman, to Star Wars and Avatar. George Lucas especially borrowed heavily from the series. Maybe “borrowed” is too nice a word.
So Walt Disney finally bankrolled Director Andrew Stanton-the guy who brought Wall-E to life, and the end result is the $250 million “John Carter”. I guess they figured naming the film with its original title “A Princess of Mars” might have seemed a bit too wimpy.
The end result is a pretty decent movie that the trailers don’t do justice. Not totally spectacular, but a good, solid action-adventure space opera fitting for most members of the family. It’s not slavish to the book-which is not a bad thing since literary and movie tastes have changed a lot in the past hundred years. It does hold true to all the important aspects of the novel. Fighting man John Carter gets transported to a dying planet-Mars, or “Barsoom” as the natives call it. Because of the difference in gravity, he finds he is stronger, faster, and can leap tall buildings in a single bound. He first meets the savage Tharks, and their noble leader, or “Jeddak”-Tars Tarkas. We follow his adventures as he slowly steps into the role he is destined for-Savior of the planet Barsoom, and as he falls in love with Dejah Thoris.
This film is an exotic adventure, with great visuals, realistic and emotive alien creatures, stirring action and even a little romance. It does get a little too “talky” at times, slowing down the pace too much, and it takes awhile to get to the full-out action scenes, but it’s all worth it in the end.
Taylor Kitsch was not what I had originally envisioned as John Carter, but he won me over with his quiet brooding charm and a touch of humor-he wasn’t just a hunk with lots of muscles. Lynn Collins makes a luminous modern princess-smart, self-reliant with the ability to kick-ass. Mark Strong is slimy and powerful as the villain Matai Shang. I would have liked some more screen time for Willem Dafoe’s excellent Tars Tarkas, to see a little more of the building friendship that was in the book, but maybe we’ll see more of that in a sequel-if the box office demands one.
I give John Carter, directed by Andrew Stanton, a grade of “B”. I’m Keith Kelly.

We talk to stars Antonio Banderas, Mark Strong and Freida Pinto about this drama.
Anfang der 30er Jahre, Jahre vor dem großen Öl-Boom in Arabien. Die beiden verfeindeten Stammesfürsten Nessib, Emir von Hobeika, (Antonio Banderas) und Amar, Sultan von Salmaah, (Mark Strong) schließen einen Waffenstillstand. Als Sicherheitspuffer zwischen ihren beiden Territorien soll der sogenannte Yellow Belt dienen, eine Zone, auf die keiner von beiden je Anspruch erheben darf. Um das Abkommen zu besiegeln, übernimmt Nessib die Obhut für Amars Söhne Saleeh und Auda. Jahre lang herrscht Frieden – bis eines Tages genau in diesem Niemandsland große Ölvorkommen entdeckt werden.
Nessib erkennt schnell, dass der schwarze Goldsegen eine einzigartige Chance ist, Reichtum und Wohlstand für sich und sein Reich zu erlangen und beginnt mit Hilfe von Texas Oil mit dem Öl-Abbau. Sein einziger Gegner Amar ist entschieden gegen diese Ausbeute im Yellow Belt.
Zur gleichen Zeit versucht Saleeh, aus dem Goldenen Käfig Nessibs zu entkommen und zu seinem Vater zurückzukehren, doch bei seinem Fluchtversuch wird er ermordet. Um einem Angriff von Amar zu entgehen, gibt Nessib seine geliebte Tochter, Prinzessin Leyla (Freida Pinto), Auda (Tahar Rahim) zur Frau – eine Liebeshochzeit. Doch eine erneute Begegnung Audas mit seinem Vater Amar verändert alles. Auda macht sich auf Bitte Amars auf den Weg durch die Wüste, um Nessib auf die falsche Fährte zu locken und seinem Vater den Angriff auf Hobeika zu ermöglichen und so den weiteren Abbau des Öls zu stoppen. Ein gewagtes Vorhaben, bei dem es nur einen Sieger geben kann.
Mit atemberaubenden Bildern in einer spektakulären Wüstenkulisse inszeniert Regiemeister Jean-Jaques Annaud („Im Namen der Rose“) ein bildgewaltiges Epos, hochkarätig besetzt mit Antonio Banderas, Tahar Rahim, Mark strong und Freida Pinto.
Principios del siglo XX, Arabia.Bajo el implacable cielo del desierto, dos jefes tribales se declaran la guerra y se enfrentan. Los cuerpos de sus guerreros quedan esparcidos por el campo de batalla. Nesib, emir de Hobeika (ANTONIO BANDERAS), es el vencedor e impone las condiciones a su rival Amar, sultán de Salmaah (MARK STRONG).Aceptan no intentar hacerse con la tierra de nadie que separa los dos reinos, conocida como Franja Amarilla. Como garantía, y de acuerdo con las leyes tribales de entonces, Nesib “adoptará” o, mejor dicho, se llevará como rehenes a los dos hijos de Amar, llamados Saleeh (AKIN GAZI) y Auda (TAHAR RAHIM).Pasan los años, y Saleeh, que es un guerrero nato, se muere de ganas de escapar de la jaula dorada en la que está encerrado y regresar a las tierras de su padre. Sin embargo, a Auda solo le importan los libros y el conocimiento.Un día, llega un empresario de Texas (COREY JOHNSON) para ver a Nesib, y le cuenta al emir que hay petróleo en sus tierras. Le promete riquezas que van mucho más allá de lo que pueda imaginar.
Inizio del ventesimo secolo - Arabia
Sotto il sole spietato del deserto, due sultani si incontrano faccia a faccia. Tutto attorno, sul campo di battaglia, i corpi dei loro combattenti. Il vincitore Nesib, emiro di Hobeika (Antonio Banderas), detta le condizioni di pace al suo rivale Amar, sultano di Salmaah (Mark Strong). Nessuno potrà mai più reclamare i diritti della cosiddetta terra di nessuno, denominata "La Striscia Gialla". Secondo il costume tribale Nesib "tiene in ostaggio", adottandoli, i due figli maschi di Amar, Saleeh (Akin Gazi) e Auda (Tahar Rahim) a garanzia del trattato. Diversi anni dopo: Saleeh è un guerriero ansioso di fuggire dalla gabbia dorata e tornare nella terra del padre, mentre ad Auda interessano solo i libri e la ricerca della conoscenza. Un giorno il padre adottivo, Nesib, riceve la visita di un petroliere texano (Corey Johnson), che lo informa: il suo territorio è benedetto dal petrolio.
Nesib sogna già un regno con strade, scuole ed ospedali, tutto pagato dall'oro nero che è sotto l’arida sabbia. Ma c'è un problema: il petrolio si trova nella zona di "La Striscia Gialla".
[BlackTree TV - Los Angeles] Shawn Edwards sits down with two of the hottest latin stars on the screen, Mr. Antonio Banderas and Ms. Selma Hayek to talk about their voices in the new movie "Puss In Boots", which has been #1 in the box office for 2 consecutive weeks.
Long before he even met Shrek, the notorious fighter, lover and outlaw Puss in Boots (ANTONIO BANDERAS) becomes a hero when he sets off on an adventure with the tough and street smart Kitty Softpaws (SALMA HAYEK) and the mastermind Humpty Dumpty (ZACH GALIFIANAKIS) to save his town. Complicating matters along the way are the notorious outlaws Jack and Jill (BILLY BOB THORNTON and AMY SEDARIS), who will do anything to see that Puss and his band do not succeed.
This is the true story of The Cat, The Myth, The Legend…and, of course, The Boots.
Since his introduction to American cinema in the highly acclaimed “Mambo Kings,” ANTONIO BANDERAS (Puss in Boots) is irrefutably one of the leading international actors of his generation. He has received critical praise for his performances in film, television and theater, as well as behind the scenes as a feature film director. In 2005, he was honored with a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
His second directorial feature is the Spanish film “El Camino De Los Ingleses” (titled “Summer Rain” in the U.S.). A coming-of-age story, the film follows the first loves, lusts and obsessions of friends on vacation at the end of the 1970s. He made his directorial debut with “Crazy in Alabama,” starring his wife, Melanie Griffith.
Banderas stole the show in the 2004 blockbuster animated film “Shrek 2” as the voice of Puss in Boots. He reprised this role in the widely anticipated sequel “Shrek the Third,” the ABC Christmas special “Shrek the Halls,” and the fourth installment of the franchise, “Shrek Forever After.”
In 2003, Banderas earned a Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Musical for his Broadway debut in the Roundabout Theater Company production of “Nine,” a musical inspired by Fellini’s “8½.” He also received a Best Actor Drama Desk Award, Outer Critics Circle Award, Drama League Award and Theatre World Award. “Nine,” directed by David Leveaux, also starred Chita Rivera.
This upcoming year, Banderas will appear in the upcoming film “Black Gold,” directed by Jean Jacques Annoud, opposite Freida Pinto, Mark Strong and Tahar Rahim.
Academy Award® nominee SALMA HAYEK (Kitty Softpaws) has proven herself as a prolific actress, producer and director, in both film and television. She received an Academy Award® nomination, a Golden Globe nomination, a SAG nomination and a BAFTA nomination for Best Actress for the title role in Julie Taymor's “Frida.” Hayek recently completed filming Oliver Stone's “Savages,” with Benico del Toro, John Travolta, Uma Thurman and Blake Lively.
Hayek recently wrapped French filmmaker Mathieu Demy’s “Americano”; the Spanish film “La Chispa de la Vida” from director Álex de la Iglesia; and “Here Comes the Boom,” a comedy from director Frank Coraci, in which she stars opposite Kevin James, who also wrote the film. “Here Comes the Boom” is scheduled for release in 2012.
Aside from upcoming film projects, Hayek has launched her new cosmetic, skincare and haircare line this past summer, called “Nuance Salma Hayek.” The 100-item beauty line is being sold exclusively at CVS Pharmacies around the country. All items are priced below $20.00.
