John Carter pitch reel

Before Disney brought John Carter to movie theaters, resulting in one of the biggest box office bombs in recent memory, the film was in development at Paramount Pictures. Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow director Kerry Conran was attached to direct the adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough‘s classic sci-fi novel John Carter of Mars, but it never came to fruition before the rights lapsed and ended up at the House of Mouse.

But for anyone who has ever wondered what this first iteration of John Carter of Mars might have looked like, a presentation reel has surfaced online with some very impressive designs that would have been awesome to see on the big screen.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies photos

It’s been a long road for the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s period romance/horror remix Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to get made, but the film will arrive in theaters next February.

So far we’ve only seen a brief glimpse of the Regency era zombie flick, but now some new photos have debuted online showing off the deadly corset-wearing ladies of the film and just a hint of the zombie mayhem that will invade the fancy setting. And if you’re expecting a campy mix of zombie action and Jane Austen’s classic, apparently that’s not the case.

peter pan's flight new effects

Disney has been very busy refurbishing some of their older attractions. Last year Disney added new effects to Big Thunder Mountain, Alice in Wonderland and the Indiana Jones Adventure. This year already Disney has revamped a bunch of attractions, adding the Hatbox Ghost to the Haunted Mansion as well as adding new effects and an awesome new animatronic Yeti to Matterhorn (too bad the new vehicles kill your butt).

And the newest attraction to get refurbishment is Peter Pan’s Flight, one of my favorite rides in classic Fantasyland — I just love suspended dark ride vehicles, which is one of the reasons I love the Universal Studios’ ET Adventure ride.  Walt Disney Imagineering has released a video showcasing the new additions to the attraction, giving us a behind the scenes peek into the thought and work that went into the new effects. Watch the video now embedded after the jump.
