“Barsoom” reads a sign on the outskirts of the movie set we’re about to visit. “Barsoom” is what Martians call their planet in Edgar Rice Burroughs‘ A Princess of Mars. A group of my fellow online movie journalists and I are headed to the set of Andrew Stanton‘s adaptation of the classic sci-fi novel, John Carter. Mars may technically be in Big Water, Utah, but today we’ll be walking the ruins of an ancient Martian city, meeting a princess who bleeds blue, and a nine-foot-tall nomad tribe of warriors. Hit the jump to take a trip to the red planet and find out about my visit to the set of John Carter.
