This morning, Good Morning America interviewed Taylor Kitsch and then premiered the new trailer for Disney’s ‘John Carter’ movie. The film, directed by Andrew Stanton, is set to be released on March 9th, 2012 and also stars Lynn Collins, Willem Dafoe, Mark Strong, Bryan Cranston, Thomas Hayden Church, and James Purefoy.
So far, most people who have seen it don’t seem to think that the epic visuals and effects sync up well with what many of them are calling lackluster dialogue and acting. I’m willing to hold off an opinion until I see a bit more of the movie.
Via Good Morning America. The trailer starts around the one-minute mark. We’ll update with a better version once it becomes available.
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.
