You would think that after spending a truckload of money to even buy a commercial spot during the Super Bowl that Disney would at least put together a trailer that would show something new from the movie ‘John Carter.’ The 30 second on air spot left much to be desired but the extended version does make up for what wasn’t shown during the game.
Too bad Disney decided not to show more scenes from the movie as it does look epic and the CGI is pretty impressive. Here’s the full extended version of the SuperBowl trailer of ‘John Carter’ and just in case you’re not familiar with the story, here’s a synopsis:
From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton, “John Carter of Mars” 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.
