The John Carter Facebook Group — “Take me back to Barsoom! I want John Carter to have a sequel!” just reached 6,000 members (well it’s at 5,900++ as I write this) after 10 days in operation. To put this in perspective — (and no offense meant to other movies) Prince Of Persia’s “We want a sequel” group topped out at 333 prople; and a similar Facebook page for Van Helsing drew only 170. I’m just sayin’……there are some serious people committed to finding justice for this film, and they aren’t going to go away anytime soon. 6,000 is a good start. But there’s more that’s interesting about this…….
I had the idea of posting one day’s worth of postings/discussions from the FB page here so people could get a feel for what’s going on over there, but when I tried to paste in that much stuff, it crashed this site. (Not kidding.)….So instead, I counted the number of posts and comments just for today. I stopped counting when I got to 100 posts and something over 1000 comments. I love it — what a great site and great people!
One thing that’s very cool — Edgar Rice Burroughs continues to inspire creative people and the fans include writers, artists, and musicians who are contributing fan art and making it all very interesting.
Here are the pieces of fan art that have been posted just in the last few hours.
First of all — a very cool fan trailer by group member William Farrelly that has everybody buzzing.
