Oscar winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton has been wow-ing audiences across the globe with his movies. From "Wall-E" to "A Bug's Life," he's already made his mark on the animation front but is now looking to conquer live-action with his latest Disney film "John Carter." The movie is based off the widely popular Edgar Rice Burroughs novels that have been entertaining fans of the sci-fi and fantasy realm for decades. AMC Theatres' senior editor John Campea got the chance to sit down and talk to the filmmaker about the upcoming film.

The movie centers on Civil War veteran John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) who's transplanted to Mars, where he discovers a lush, wildly diverse planet whose main inhabitants are 12-foot tall green barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins), Princess of Helium, who is in desperate need of a savior.

    I can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.
