Check out the newly-released trailer (above) for Disney's John Carter, which debuted last night at the Super Bowl!
When we saw the first trailer for this movie back in December, it seemed to us like it was basically Prince of Persia in space…but we're starting to think there might be more to it!
It IS being directed by the the guy made Wall-E, after all!
What do U think? Will U check out John Carter when it comes out next month???
We're glad to see that M&M's won't put up with such deplorable behavior!
Earlier this month, NASCAR racer Kyle Busch "purposefully wrecked" Ron Hornaday Jr. during a Truck Series race at Texas.
As a result, Busch was fined $50,000, he was put on probation for the rest of the season, AND M&M's will no longer sponsor him.
Here's what Mars Chocolate North America chief consumer Debra A. Sandler had to say about it:
Vegans in space!
A rocket producer called SpaceX recently announced they're planing on flying people to Mars to make a human colony. We know what your thinking — What will they eat??
Okay, it's not the first thing that came to our mind either. But the people at PETA were all over it! They're petitioning that Mars should be an all-vegan planet!
The animal rights group sent out a press release saying:
“the Martian colony is an opportunity to make a kind civilization in which humans don’t exploit other beings. And since the animal agriculture industry is toxic to human health and to the environment, an all-vegan civilization would ensure that the new Martian citizens would have long and healthy futures.”
Hmm… that's IS something to think about.
Even if their dream of a vegan-friendly planet doesn't come true, we think it's awesome the PETA's goals don't end at home. Looks like they won't stop till the whole universe is rid of animal cruelty!

After Battle: Los Angeles, maybe it's not such a bad idea for Hollywood to take us to another planet…
Sources are saying that Paramount has picked up the rights to Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles, which is a classic short story collection from the 1940s about humans attempting to start colonies on Mars.
The film is being is produced by Predators/I, Robot producer John Davis, and the stories will deal with the following:
- Humans attempting to settle Mars and Martians attempting to fight against them
- Human colonization of Mars, followed by a nuclear war that causes most humans to leave the planet and go back to Earth
- Humans becoming the "new Martians"
Previously, The Martian Chronicles was adapted as a mini-series in 1980 by NBC/The BBC.
Paramount hasn't found a writer for the film yet, so hopefully they'll find someone who can do justice to the original short story collection AND the mini-series.
Maybe they should just have James Cameron write this. The subject matter is pret-ty similar to Avatar…or perhaps we should say that Avatar's subject matter is similar to this…
Are U excited for this new adaptation of The Martian Chronicles? Who would U like to see sign on to write and/or direct???
Last month, we learned that a bunch of potential leading ladies were up for two major roles in the upcoming Total Recall remake.
Guess we'll find out soon if she officially signs on to the project.
Do U think Jessica Biel is the right choice for this role?

Last we heard about the remake to Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1990 sci-fi classic Total Recall, Inception had just come out, and all we could think was…these movies are pretty similar!
The movie is scheduled to start shooting in late March with Underworld's Len Wiseman directing.
The plot, which is based on a Phillip K. Dick story, revolves around a man who wants to travel to Mars, and buys an implanted memory of a dream vacation to the planet, but that dream becomes…a NIGHTMARE! (cue maniacal laughter).
As much as we always love the opportunity for some Tom Hardy in our lives, we think Colin Farrell could def pull this one off.
Remakes are always tricky fare, but after Inception, we're still kind of innerested in exploring the concept of "Dreams Vs. Reality."
What about U? Does this appeal to U? Or have U had enough with movies that explore this subject?
