Several years before the film began production, "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" creator and director Kerry Conran was attached to take the helm of a film adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough's beloved science fiction series "John Carter of Mars" at Paramount Pictures.
Conrad's version didn't come together and the film ended up at Disney where Andrew Stanton took the helm and delivered the Taylor Kitsch-led version which sadly became one Hollywood's most famous big budget bombs of modern times.
Today, AICN's Harry Knowles has posted a high-res version of the presentation reel for Conran's original vision of the story. The clip, which has previously only been available in blurry low-res, shows off some stunning artwork along with test footage of some fighting.

Once upon a time Kerry Conran (Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow) was slated to direct an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough's beloved science fiction series John Carter of Mars for Paramount. Of course, that didn't pan out, and what we ended up with was Disney's John Carter, the Taylor Kitsch-led box office disaster that generated a bizarre amount of hate for what I understand was just a kind of okay movie. For those who wanted to see what Conran's version might have looked like, today's your luck day. Harry Knowles, who was set to produce the axed adaptation, has released a high-res version of the presentation reel, featuring tons of gorgeous artwork and some solid fight choreography. A low-res version of this video has been floating around the internet for a while, but this version is crisp and offers a solid idea of what Conran had in mind for his film's aesthetic. »

From TV-loving agoraphobes to those looking for brazen shirtless male strippers, this holiday weekend offers plenty for the culturally curious to explore
Yoko Ono: One Woman Show, 1960–1971
It goes a long way to revalorising one of the most misunderstood artists of the last 60 years. Her massive fame, and maybe her heal-the-world rhetoric too, has obscured the groundbreaking contributions she made to the art of the 1960s and beyond. At last, the art world has come round. This show is no guerrilla occupation. It is a belated and jubilant rectification of the historical record, and a victory lap for an artist laughed at for too long.
One of the most alluring parts of Purifoy’s work is the richness of its meaning. Much of it is playful and humorous. He handles social issues with a deft touch – perhaps in the Langston Hughes spirit of “laughing to keep from crying”. And »

Indeed, if these are McAdams’ most famous films, they emphasise her knack for versatility: in Mean Girls, she plays an unabashed villain, whilst The Notebook places her at the other end of the spectrum entirely as the leading role in a Nicholas Sparks’ romantic comedy.
Which is another way of saying that Rachel McAdams, still only 36-years-old, is an actress capable of much. She’s somebody who is not afraid to try new things, nor will she refuse a simple or mainstream part if she believes it to be good for her stock. McAdams can do serious and she can do comedy; she shines in a leading role, but she almost always makes a mark in secondary parts, too. She is also cool, »

Us Weekly says that the duo, who star together in season two of the HBO drama, have been spending lots of time together lately -- and that includes off-set, too. The magazine says that "multiple sources" confirm that the stars are dating, after being spotted out to dinner together last month.
"It hasn't been long," a source told Us Weekly of the pair's romance. "But it's serious." (Then again, a different source says, "I don't know if it's full-blown love yet, but they talk constantly." Get your stories straight, anonymous tabloid sources!)
According to the magazine, the actors -- who are both Canadian -- have been "friends for years," but "grew closer on set" while shooting the gritty drama. This isn't the »

We really hope this one is true! "True Detective" costars Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch are reportedly dating, according Us Weekly. The site says that Rachel and Taylor recently grabbed dinner together at Osteria Mozza in West Hollywood earlier this month -- and, while their romance is relatively new, it's moving pretty fast. "It hasn’t been long," an insider tells Us. "But it’s serious." The Canadian actors -- who recently finished filming the HBO hit drama together -- have been close friends for years, but apparently their relationship changed after working together on the crime thriller. "They grew closer on set," a second source close to the "Mean Girls" star adds. This isn't the fist time the 36-year-old has struck up a romantic relationship with a costar. After filming "The Notebook" with Ryan Gosling in 2004, the pair started dating but eventually split (and crushed the dreams of Noah »

Note: This post contains spoilers for the second season of "True Detective" for anyone that hasn't seen the third episode. Yesterday I rewatched the first three episodes of this second season of "True Detective" in an effort to put together an "everything we know" post I'll be releasing on Monday and to compile notes on each individual character for the purposes of our podcast. It was a rather enlightening look at the season so far, to the point even that first episode improves with a second glance and a few things that previously alluded my knowledge have now come to light. That said, Taylor Kitsch recently spoke with The Daily Beast about his role as Officer Paul Woodrugh and the secrets he's hiding. Secrets such as Kitsch confirms he's popping Viagra in that opening episode and mere allusions to what went down with his work as a mercenary for Black Mountain »

Rachel McAdams is romancing her True Detective costar Taylor Kitsch! Us Weekly confirmed the news on Wednesday, citing multiple sources close to the new couple. Rumors of a relationship between the two stars began last month, after they were spotted on a dinner date at La's Osteria Mozza. Taylor and Rachel, who both hail from Canada, have been "friends for years," with a source adding that they "grew closer on set." Now that filming on the HBO show's second season has ended, maybe we can see more of Taylor and Rachel out and about together. Rachel was most recently linked to her Southpaw costar Jake Gyllenhaal and has previously dated Michael Sheen and Ryan Gosling. She spoke to Glamour in 2012 about finding love on the set, saying, "A set may seem like a good place for romance, but I don't think it's very conducive; it's too distracting. Every relationship I've »
Mystery solved. A month after Rachel McAdams and her True Detective costar Taylor Kitsch dined at West Hollywood’s Osteria Mozza on June 2, multiple sources confirm they are dating. “It hasn’t been long,” says an insider. “But it’s serious.” The Canadians, who recently wrapped the HBO drama’s second season, have been “friends for years,” adds a second McAdams source. “They grew closer on set.” McAdams, 36, once told Glamour that work isn’t a convenient place to find love.

After a pilot episode with little to recommend it, ‘Night Finds You’ recaptures a bit of season 1′s driving-in-cars-shooting-shit character chemistry, meanders through introducing what might shape up into a compelling setting and plot, and then ends by swerving with alarming suddenness into what might be some honest to God interesting territory.
Ray Velcoro getting pumped full of buckshot in the episode’s final moments is so definitively framed that his survival would be a Dallas-sized lump of horseshit. The crow-masked man who does the deed, the kitchen sink filled to the brim by the slow accumulations of a leaky faucet, the golden oldies on the radio, the closet hiding what looks like a wiretap or a secret studio of some kind; it all comes together to make the last two minutes of this week’s True Detective feel like a reel from a lost David Lynch movie. »

On Friday, Jimmy Fallon gave fans a scare when he checked into the hospital for emergency surgery on his hand following a mysterious injury. Today, the host is fine, taking to Twitter to reveal that he's recovering comfortably -- and tweeting with one hand -- thanks to a combination of drugs, Jell-o, and excellent medical staff.
Fallon posted a series of updates to Twitter over the past few days, first showing off a big bandage on his left hand, then explaining what happened: He tripped and caught his fall on a nearby table, but his wedding ring latched onto the table and "almost ripped my finger off."

Tripped and caught my fall (good thing)! Ring caught on side of table almost ripped my finger off (bad thing).

(Spoiler alert: Do not read any further if you have not watched Sunday’s June 29th episode of HBO’s “True Detective”) For fans and critics bemoaning a slow start to the second season of “True Detective,” the end of Sunday night’s second episode floored the gas pedal on the dark drama starring Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn and Taylor Kitsch. When we last left a group of world-weary investigators and a highway patrol cop (Farrell, McAdams and Kitsch), they begrudgingly assembled to solve the gruesome murder of a businessman tied to Vaughn’s shady land developer.

*Spoilers ahead from last night's "True Detective" Season 2*
Only two episodes of "True Detective" Season 2 have aired on HBO, and we're still trying to figure out the characters' names and motivations (beyond a lot of scowling). At this point, we're still following them as Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Vince Vaughn, and Taylor Kitsch. And after Episode 2, "Night Finds You," maybe there's no Colin Farrell anymore?
Farrell plays Detective Ray Velcoro, opposite McAdams as Detective Ani Bezzerides, Kitsch as Officer Paul Woodrugh and Vaughn as criminal entrepreneur Frank Semyon. "Night Finds You" ended with Farrell's Ray Velcoro shot multiple times by someone wearing a mask -- a black bird mask. And it's HBO. And a main character may or may not be dead. This is too close to "Game of Thrones" to ignore. Jon Snow just got stabbed by his fellow "crows" in the Season 5 finale and may or may not ever return. »

"True Detective" ups the ante in every way and settles into its comfortable procedural grove this week. Its season premiere may require more than one viewing to truly appreciate (having watched the episode again, I can say it does improve), but "Night Finds You" is full of all the elements that made the first season such a standout. The episode opens with Semyon (Vince Vaughn) concerned for his legacy. Subtlety is nowhere to be found as quick flashes of Semyon's large empty house are intercut with him lamenting the fact he and his wife Jordan (Kelly Reilly) do not have children. When Frank recalls his five days in the dark as a child and his terror at being locked in the basement, his desire for some sort of lasting contribution becomes clear. Semyon straddles the line between legitimacy and his gangster past for most of this hour and he seems »

A review of tonight's "True Detective" coming up just as soon as I support feminism by having body image issues... "But us, the investigation... I don't think it's supposed to work." -Ray "Night Finds You" could be a tricky episode for me to write about, since it ends on a cliffhanger with Ray getting shot in the chest by Caspere's killer (or by another man with a very particular bird mask fetish), and since you know I've seen next week's episode and am therefore aware whether Ray lives or dies. Fortunately, I don't need to dance around what I do and don't know, and what I'm comfortable hinting at, because I can share exactly how I reacted in the moments immediately after I finished watching this one: "Huh. I was not expecting that." If Velcoro is dead, then all the time spent trying to cast that role represents a classic »

Another one bites the dust! The second episode of HBO's True Detective Season 2 ended explosively thanks to one of the leading characters getting pumped full of bullets in the closing scene. Read on to find out whether Taylor Kitsch, Colin Farrell, Rachel McAdams, or Vince Vaughn was potentially killed off –– plus find out what's going on in Ben Casper's murder investigation. Psst: spoilers below. Duh. Paul Woodrugh Continues To Be Damaged/Hunky Let's talk about Paul Woodrugh (Taylor Kitsch), a man with so many emotional problems [...] »
Channing Tatum has been talking about a lot of movies recently. On the promotional trail for Magic Mike Xxl, he updated on his still-gestating Ghostbusters reboot, and has now teased his vision for his upcoming Gambit movie, which is due to hit screens in 2016. While Taylor Kitsch played the role in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 20th Century Fox replaced him with Tatum for the Gambit solo film – which will be written by Joshua Zetumer, from a treatment by character creator Chris Claremont. Speaking to Comic Book Resources, Tatum revealed that he is working closely with director Rupert Wyatt to realize a particular version of the story.
“We’re so early in it. I really have some things in mind, but who knows – it’s pretty fluid at this point. I do believe that [director] Rupert [Wyatt] and I have the exact same vision of what we want to do. We want it to be different. »
