Disney's sci-fi action movie John Carter may not have received stellar box office results, but that doesn't mean that you still can't marvel over the cool costumes and props featured in the Edgar Rice Burroughs adaptation.

Tars Tarkas props and more from John Carter on display...

In the movies it's not only the costumes and special effects that can transport you to other worlds, it's also the movie props used by the actors and to dress a set that can help you make believe.

Also integral to the movie's plot is this door from the mausoleum crypt where John Carter is placed when he 'dies'.

The Latin inscription on the door 'Inter Mundos' contains a secret key code to the vault, which only opens from the inside, and I believe it translates as 'Between Worlds', which is quite appropriate.

The exhibit also included telescope and sword props used by the digitally-created green six-limbed Martian Thark Jeddak (leader), 'Tars Tarkas', voiced by Willem Dafoe.
