The Sci-Fi Film School #25 – Princess of Mars


On this episode of The Sci-Fi Film School Podcast, we talk about the 2009 movie Princess of Mars, based on a novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs.


After a devastating enemy ambush leaves soldier John Carter (Antonio Sabato Jr.) fighting for his life, he awakens to discover that the experimental treatment designed to save him has inexplicably transported him to Mars. On the red planet, Carter finds himself endowed with extraordinary powers — and in the middle of a feud between warring alien races. Traci Lords also stars in this sci-fi adventure.
