The Release of Disney’s John Carter is just around the corner and the studio has just pushed out the final trailer for the film. Many people who have seen the movie say it is good, but the marketing for the film has been nothing short of what seems like an attempt by Disney to sandbag their own film. Even the movie’s director acknowledges that some of the fan made trailers do a better job of explaining the film than the actual marketing does.
They seem to have gotten the message a bit better with this trailer. At least now we know why Carter is actually on Mars. It is almost like Disney has taken for granted that most people have read the original stories by Edgar Rice burroughs.
From Academy Award(R)-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.
