    Just a shame del Toro's Mountains of Madness adaption got shafted, or you'd have an incredibly prescient thread here.

    According to del Toro, damned if he knows:

    Seems a big budget R-rated movie with albino penguins made investors skittish, I guess.

    The only stuff that IMDB and Wikipedia have that hasn't come out yet, is his The Dark Tower project.

    Robert E. Howard's Conan stories have been great pulp so far. They're swift and to the point, with Conan sometimes arriving as the sturdy survivor of some previous terrible peril just to stumble into an even worse situation with his usual wry, contemptuous aplomb.

    And hell, killing the villain in the middle of him making a haranguing speech. That scene's born for a movie.

    You say that like it's a bad thing.

    Look. Even ignoring the influence it's had on Cameron (and Lucas, and Bradbury, and Clarke) the Barsoom series and James Cameron's Avatar are both from the planetary romance genre, which doesn't often actually get movie adaptions (on account of being by definition seriously expensive to do so).

    I'm glad to get more, frankly.

    For anyone who is interested Comixology has the first 5 issues of Dynamite Entertainments Warlord of Mars series, and the first 2 issue of it's Dejah Thoris spinoff. I haven't read them yet, so I don't know if they're any good, but I still thought it was worth mentioning.

    the Dejah Thoris series is very fun and enjoyable. Warlord of Mars is good. just a long, drawn out version of the first book with a few changes.

    there will be a second book called "warlord of mars: fall of barsoom Book one:the tide of battle". and then book two: when hell broke loose. all so picked up the dark horse omnibus which collected the marvels series. I just wished it was in hardback.

    I already posted this in the John Carter thread, but just in case someone here doesn't go there I'll post it here too. The trailer for John Carter is being posted on ITunes Trailers today at 10AM Pacific Time.
