film update @ 05:22 pm

Tags: , , ,

Three and a half years ago, I posted about a list of SF/F properties that oughtta be made into films.

#8 on that list was the Barsoom stories. About which I said "Load it up with CGI, flop it in front of 2000 screens, and rake in the cash. It might even accidentally turn out watchable!"

Apparently it did not accidentally turn out watchable (though it's a not too dismal 51% fresh on Rottentomatoes). Disney expects a $200 million loss.

ETA: Still no Amber or Elric, but look what we might get in 2013. more info.

Neat! I would totally go see a Dragonriders movie. I only remember the main plot of the first one, but I remember liking it a lot.
