With the movie to premiere in theaters next week, Disney has decided to release one more trailer just for good measure. While visually the first and second theatrical trailers have been pretty impressive and the movie clips entertaining enough, most who aren’t happy with the marketing of the film complain that the trailers give no explanation of what the movie is about. While I must admit that I have not read the books, the trailers have impressed me enough to see the movie.
‘John Carter’ is hoped to be the first of a franchise for Disney and rumor has it that director Stanton is already looking into developing sequels. Early screenings of the film have critics calling it a “flawed, but fun sci-fi title that delivers loads of impressive action spectacle and eye candy.” But will this be enough for Disney to recoup their $250million budget or will it be the first big bomb of the year?
Why don’t you decide as you watch the third and last theatrical trailer for ‘John Carter.’
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.
