Earlier this morning we released a ten minute clip from the beginning of Disney’s John Carter. In that clip, we finally get to see a lot more of the back story for the main character and where he’s coming from on earth before he is taken by the aliens.
In this new clip, they are showing a similar chase scene to the first one, but this time we are on Mars. I think it was an interesting set of clips for Disney to release as we are really starting to get the concept of who he is and why he seems to have super powers.
From Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”—a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
