John Carter

It's been awhile since the first trailer for John Carter release back in July gave us a glimpse at the world of WALL-E and Finding Nemo director Andrew Stanton's venture into live-action sci-fi with a bit of a western flavor. There were a couple interesting creatures to behold, but now a new photo from EW gives us a full glimpse and some sort of giant, killer creature that likely is meant to kill John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) in this rocky arena. Hopefully this new image means we'll be getting a longer more revealing trailer sometime soon (perhaps with The Muppets in theaters today?). Either way, check out the new photo below!

Here's the new photo from Andrew Stanton's John Carter:

John Carter Creature Photo - Entertainment Weekly

John Carter is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic sci-fi adventures. The movie tells the story 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 (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands. The cast also includes: Samantha Morton, Ciaran Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy, Daryl Sabara, Polly Walker and Bryan Cranston. Disney is bringing John Carter to theaters everywhere on March 9th, 2012.

look like it but while reading the books I didn't imagine this big. Especially in the scenes where John Carter would be fighting several of them.

Yeah and the sand has the freaking same color as in the Mojave desert! what a rip off.

Hahaha! Legend.

It doesn't, actually. The arena in episode 2 was an arena - and ripped from Gladiator's colossuem shots. The image above isn't an arena as much as it is just some pit these people found and turned into a place where they could fight beasts or something. There's no audience area, the people in the background are just standing on cliffs and slopes.

John Carter has hort hair. It's a small detail but, like, why's he gotta have fruity-ass long hair? It ain't accurate I tells ya.

He was too busy to have a nice haircut, he's having some trouble right now, but he will have his hair straight as soon as he finishes what's he's doing.

That's not a great white ape, it's an "apt," which is an enourmous arctic creature with 4 legs, 2 arms, faceted eyes and tusks and is really fast. In other words, you pray that you never come face to face with one. The White apes are more similar to a gorilla, except they have 4 arms and 2 legs; they're intelligent and dangerous.

Star Wars ep2, Star Trek (2009), little Cloverfield... but yeah still looks cool. Dafoe and Mark Strong, Bryan Cranston. I'm in.
