New Red Poster for 'John Carter' Here Before New Trailer on Thursday

With a brief and mostly mysterious teaser trailer only giving us a hint of what to expect with Disney's epic John Carter, we're left to wonder just what director Andrew Stanton can do with a live-action, western-style sci-fi landscape and a cast that includes Taylor Kitsch and Willem Dafoe. A recent picture gave us another piece of the action with a pivotal creature in the story, and while this new poster doesn't really do much in the vein of revelation, it's still a rather stylish poster, and it at least delivers the red of Mars without the planet appearing in the film's title. You can now watch the new John Carter trailer here!
Here's the newest official poster for Andrew Stanton's John Carter, courtesy of its page on Apple:
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.
... I'm really excited for this movie, but this poster is fairly mediocre to me. I liked that 'JCM' teaser logo one they did a while back a lot better....

Really like the concept but the execution of the design could have been better. Either way, really excited for the movie!

Wow. That's one sh*t poster. Why are they downplaying the JCM logo so hard?

Hey, it works for me. While I'm damned glad they've finally made a film based on A PRINCESS OF MARS--right in time for it's 100 anniversary, in fact--I'm just worried about the viewers that will sneer "AVATAR rip-off!!" and just walk away. Which would be a very sad thing, since Andrew Stanton has worked on some of Pixar's/Disney's biggest hits over the past few years. I am looking forward to this film, and frankly, even if some of the details are changed from the novel, I'll live. It happens to every book adapted to the big screen; and besides, no one cares about the fact that the classic 1930s FRANKENSTEIN left out a lot of details from the original novel.

Looks like a 70's style Galaxy-Western Poster. If John Carter was going the "Camp Route" I guess this would be fine, but from the teaser I'm not sure thats what "Andrew Stanton" had in mind. I dont think it has a good enough release date either.

I like it. I have to hand it to John Sabel. I saw the previous version of this where the background was just slightly more rendered and you could see the Tharls more clearly and it reminded me of the Lion King. It's slightly more on the graphic side now which I personally really like.
