Take a look at perhaps the most spectacular poster for Andrew Stanton's John Carter poster we may ever lay eyes on. Mondo has debuted a new poster via Hero Complex for Stanton's sci-fi adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter of Mars, starring Taylor Kitsch as Carter. The poster shows John Carter standing over Barsoom, looking out over one of the cities, and you can also see some the air ships in the skies as well. It's utterly gorgeous, even though they don't list a designer's name. They do say that if you're attending midnight IMAX showings of John Carter on the late evening of March 8th, you'll be getting one of these.
Here's the Mondo John Carter poster in all of its glory. I need to get my hands on one! Click to DL high res:
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.
I'm not gonna do "a look at this"-Old Spice joke because it's not frickin 2010 BUT OH MY GOD! LOOK AT THIS! And then compare it to ANYTHING Disney has put out there. My god.

Very old school kind of marketing and I like it. Reminds me of the Heavy Metal magazine.

Who really has a boner for this movie? I'm trying to like the idea but I keep getting stuck at the Mars bit. Help a man out. What's the scuttlebutt?

I'm seeing it for my Father, he was a Carter fan...so in honor of my Dad, I'll be there. The Mars bit? Is it the reason he was transported there or the look of the planet?

Quanah, I was sort of the same way when i first saw the trailers. I wasn't too impressed and didn't give it much thought. But then I read the first two books and loved them and the story and the whole idea of John Carter and Barsoom with all of it's amazining inhabitants and stories. I can't wait to see how the movie looks and feels now.

ROTFL - Do we get a wallet-size print if we go to a DigitalIMAX midnight screening?
Akirakorn on Feb 21, 2012
So where exactly will they be handing these out? I will definitely be in line to get one if I can find out some more details.

You Have to like or at least have read Edgar Rice Burroughs, To understand the Barsoom series (John Carter is only one book). It all takes place on an inhabitated mars (the distant past). It's classic science fiction at its best.!! The IMAX poster is excellent (John Carter is actually overlooking the city of Helium, which is the last major city standing after a 1000 year civil war)..I know complicated, the movie only touches on it, the books go into detail. Go see the movie, or better yet, get the book Princess of Mars (the movie is based on this book) read it, then go see the movie. Remember though, It helps a lot if your a science fiction fan.
