John Carter

"John Carter fights for us!" With just over a week to go, Disney is really pushing the marketing machine for their sci-fi epic John Carter into overdrive. There were definitely some TV spots during the Oscars, but now we have one more trailer with plenty of action and a great look at the giant scope of this film. Take some dubstep, mix it with some explosions and an extended look at Taylor Kitsch as John Carter fighting one giant, bad-ass monster, and hopefully the audience will turn out when the film hits theaters next Friday. Hopefully we'll get a great March surprise that previously only came from Zack Snyder. Watch it below!

Here's the final trailer for Andrew Stanton's John Carter, originally from Apple:

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.

Why does he look so Avatar-dish?

John Carter the 1st on Feb 28, 2012


avatar was colorful and blue aliens and rain forests and visually flourished how does this look like avatar star wars i can see but not avatar

HG2012 on Feb 28, 2012


 Yep...and also, AVATAR and STAR WARS both cribbed from the source novel for this. But hey, it's understandable if people think that.  I just wish that they could do a bit of research and find out that it was John Carter that came first, and was an influence on Cameron and Lucas. Just sayin'.

Speak the truth out loud!

Xerxexx on Feb 28, 2012


I thought it looked like they took alot of inspiration from Final Fantasy

Chocolate on Feb 28, 2012


 its avatardish, starwarish, spartanish, braveheartish, supermanish all sloped stick together by disney

redskulllives on Feb 28, 2012


Why did they have to add the whole Earth is next bit and a big bad guy behind it all....please for once hollywood, stick to the story...there was plenty of material...given you would have had to rate it "X,"  but I can live with the clothes deal, just not a re-write of the story itself. 

Josh Abbott on Feb 28, 2012


Yeah, I'm disappointed about that as well. Could it be that they took some material from the second book? I haven't read that one yet so I'm hoping that's what they did, rather than change the story.

Michael on Feb 28, 2012


 Hmmm....I wouldn't dwell too much on that, Michael.  Now, I haven't seen it myself (but I've read the first two books, and I won't spoil the second one for you), but if they made changes, well....that's how all film adaptations from movies are.  Put it this way...have they ever made a film version of TARZAN that's 100% faithful to the books?  People who have already seen the film and are familiar with the ERB novels have said that yes, there are changes...but it does not spoil the film.  The majority of reviews from advanced screenings have been very positive. At any rate, we'll find out come March 9th.

what happened to the epic kashmir trailer music? now its been replaced by.... dubstep

Armeetapus16 on Feb 28, 2012


This movie has all the makings of a domestic box office bomb.

Lerryjee on Feb 28, 2012


sorry. won't happen.

Phantom on Feb 28, 2012


"Get on!" "This might get dangerous!" Even Willem Dafoe and Mark Strong can't save this film...

Isildur_of_Numenor on Feb 28, 2012


 Well, according to the comments of people who've actually SEEN the ain't a bomb, but a darned good movie. Whether it bombs or not...who knows.  But it won't be because the film was terrible.

Scopedog on Feb 28, 2012


I hope it fails. Because then maybe movie budgets can be cut drastically and studios can maybe try and focus more on story and characters than empty spectacle.

Max Renn on Feb 29, 2012


 Hmmm...well, do you want to hear something funny?  According to those who HAVE seen the film, it concentrates on....drum roll please....story and characters! So, keep hatin' just for the sake of hatin'.  Quit worrying about the movie's budget--I mean, did you complain about INCEPTION's budget, which was supposed to be around 200 million bucks?

Scopedog on Feb 29, 2012


From the trailers it looks very bad. Taylor Kitsch can't act and he isn't helped by the script. I mean listen to those lines, they're just lame and cheesy. Sometimes a trailer is enough to say if a movie is good or bad with near certainty. The way I see it, it all depends on that 'near'. If the movie is bad, that doesn't mean the source material is bad too. Also, if the source material is groundbreaking that doesn't mean the film it's based on has to be awesome. I'm skeptical about John Carter as a film, but I'm hoping to be proved wrong. Let's see it already!

Isildur_of_Numenor on Feb 29, 2012


 The source material is anything BUT bad--it's pretty damned good stuff, which explains why it's captivated readers for 100 years. And again--judging from what has been said by people who HAVE seen the complete film--it seems that the film is actually quite good, and that the trailers and marketing did not do it justice.  Sort of like what happened with THE IRON GIANT.

Scopedog on Feb 29, 2012


I think the trailers are just doing a bad job with marketing the film...I'm kinda excited.

Xerxexx on Feb 28, 2012


 Yeah, the trailers have been a mixed bag.  But, word from advance screenings has been very, very positive.  Check the John Carter files site: Me, I'm just hoping for a film that captures as much of the book as possible.  If they've made changes, it doesn't bug me.

Scopedog on Feb 28, 2012


Me too, the John Cater books scream awesomeness...I want the movie to do it justice.

Xerxexx on Feb 28, 2012


Xerxexx and Scopedog in the same topic thread.. always a good read gentlemen

Tester on Feb 28, 2012



Xerxexx on Feb 28, 2012


Thanks, Tester.  Great to see you here too!

Scopedog on Feb 29, 2012


nothing with these trailers have really said this is will be a great movie, I really, really, really hope it is, but from what I have seen in the trailers I haven't seen anything really special. Once again , I really hope this is because visually it looks great and there haven't really been any really 3D heavy good movie, I don't care how good of an argument you make I hate Avatar, sure Tron Legacy is ok but a great movie, no. I;m just hoping this does well and it;s a good movie p.s. I also have not read any of the books so that could also be part of it

Clocker910 on Feb 28, 2012


More boring computer-generated effects to sell another underdeveloped story. YAWN.

Max Renn on Feb 29, 2012


Have to agree with Max!

Me on Feb 29, 2012


Ive been saying for 3 years this will shock & amaze, I stand by that, because the material is not a sequel & is unknown to the masses, the trailers are fully of eye candy to draw interest, expect an RT rating of office around 200 - 250 million, will spawn sequels, and toys, etc...For 6-10 years olds, it's this generations Star Wars....

Kamish on Feb 29, 2012


RT rating is 49% right now. I haven't read the book, but it sounds like they raped the material as hard as they could. Is Barsoom dying from loss of air and water? That was never mentioned!

ok, just got back from the theatre. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT. I could not for the life of me tell you what it was about. The plot was completely dismembered, drifting from banality and cliché into contradiction. The world is not introduced at all and makes no sense. What the fuck kind of a people are the Therks? They're the good guys on one hand, but on the other, they're an inhumane society. People.... I understood the plot of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, so I know it's not me at fault here. The movie just packed so much epicness into its belly that it ended up burping out all the depth of a frat party.  

littleup on Mar 8, 2012


I'm sorry, I mean the Tharks, not Therks. I saw this in German and hadn't checked the spelling.
