Another Cool International 'John Carter' Poster Has More Creatures
Obviously Disney is working pretty hard to sell John Carter overseas since most of the international marketing material is showing off the cooler, science-fiction aspects of the film and not shrouding everything in mystery. More evidence of that effort comes in a new international poster featuring Taylor Kitsch as the titular character in an image that feels like the best hybrid of western and science fiction. Our hero is riding his trusty alien steed with the sun setting behind him and his loyal companions following close behind. Disney has my attention, and I'm curious to see how this turns out. See the new poster below!
John Carter (of Mars) is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic sci-fi adventures, telling of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (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 (Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Collins). Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands. John Carter is directed by Pixar alum Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) from a screenplay by Mark Andrews, Michael Chabon & Stanton. Disney is bringing John Carter to theaters in 3D eveywhere starting March 9th, 2012 this spring.
