John Carter of Mars: New Photos!

Sorry for the lateness but it would figure this would happen on Black Friday. The site SFX has unleashed six new photos from John Carter, including our first look at Woola and new shots of Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins) and Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe). Also word has hit that the new trailer for the film will be released next week, possibly around Thursday December 1. To see the rest of the pics hit

I'm not much of a fan when it comes to pug nosed animals, but Woola looks cute - if he can also look ferocious with that design I'll probably like it.

Some of Dejah's outfits seen so far could have been more - okay, I'm not quite sure how to say what I mean. Delicate, perhaps? Even if there is quite a lot of skin showing in that one, somehow she still kind of looks as if she was bundled for winter.

But generally, things don't look too bad. Several things are not quite what I would have preferred, but if everything else works they should do well enough, and aside from the tats there hasn't been anything I outright hate.

I guess my biggest problem with the look has been that when I imagined Barsoom, at least the Red people, I usually imagined things - jewelry, outfits, weapons - which were very detailed and, well, with a sort of delicate but strong look. The kind of work you'd get from old time artisans who can spend a lot of time with each item, are proud of their work and love beauty. The look chosen for this movie is more primitive, sort of scavengers in a hurry. I guess the designers might have been thinking of something like Mad Max.

Well, it admittedly does fit the Tharks.
