ay back in 1912,before he created Tarzan, the American author Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote the first of 11 books featuring John Carter, a Civil War soldier who is transported to Mars where the change in gravity endows him with extraordinary abilities.
Now,100 years later, the Disney studios and Pixar have produced a big-budget,special effects-filled extravaganza based on the books. It is the first of what is expected to be at least three John Carter films.
To launch John Carter Disney invited HFPA members to join journalists from around the world at a pre-sceening promotional party and press junket at the Boulders resort and spa near Scottsdale, Arizona,where the cast, including star Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins and Dominic West were interviewed.
