Disney is pulling out all the stops today with the release of several clips and a new promo for the movie ‘John Carter.’ We’ve managed to put all of them in one place so take a look and let me know what you think of Andrew Stanton’s rendition of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ book.
Thanks to Yahoo, a new promo clip has emerged that has put the one shown during the Super Bowl to shame. This new promo features footage not seen in previous trailers and continues to emphasize the impressive visuals audiences will experience in the movie.
‘John Carter’ Promo Clip:
If the promo hasn’t gotten you hooked, there’s also several full scene clip that have surfaced! In the first clip, John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) avoids a horde of Martians while sweeping the beautiful Martian princess Dejah Thoris, (Lynn Collins) off her feet. Mark Strong, who plays Holy Hekkador Matai Shang, is quite good in this scene.

The release of ‘John Carter’ is less than a month away and although I haven’t read the book, it does look like an ambitious tale that should be enjoyable.
