I just happened to see the trailer for "John Carter" yesterday -- and it was good. Now, I commented on the John Carter movie here -- with a lot of commentary on Dejah Thoris, including a link to a modestly nude Lynn Collins, who plays Dejah. (Apparently this is the extended trailer, but it's the one that caught my eye.)
So, without further ado, here's the trailer (and there are resemblances to both Star Wars and Dune):
Lynn as Dejah looks good too; good choice for one of the most iconic sci-fi fantasy (the Edgar Rice Burroughs wing of the genre) heroines ever.
Now about the plot; I still wonder how much resemblance it will have to the Burroughs books. But Carter is still apparently a Civil War vet.
