Watch: Extended 'John Carter' Super Bowl Spot is Cool, Nothing New
"You are John Carter of Earth?" "Yes." Disney has debuted a new TV spot for their upcoming sci-fi John Carter, which I still think should've been left John Carter of Mars. While the original version shown during the Super Bowl was only 30 seconds, they debuted an extended version online featuring another 30 more seconds of footage, but it's still nothing we haven't really seen before in other footage. Taylor Kitsch, also seen in Battleship, stars as John Carter, with Lynn Collins, Mark Strong, Willem Dafoe, Dominic West and Ciarán Hinds. I definitely think this looks better as we near its release, only about a month left.
Watch the official Super Bowl TV spot for Andrew Stanton's John Carter, in HD via YouTube:
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.
