Buzz has been mixed on John Carter so far. That said, the new images look great and a new trailer is supposedly on its way some time next month, so I’m willing to hold off judgment.
What I’m most interest in is seeing how Willem Dafoe handles Motion Capture acting in his role as Tars Tarkas.
From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton, “John Carter” is a sweeping action adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). Based on the classic sci-fi novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the film tells the story of John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes 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 discovers that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
