One complaint about the teaser trailer for John Carter was that there was not much to be seen – that it was too mysterious. Well, the curtain has been pulled apart in a big way as the new trailer, which has debuted online through IGN, showcases a lot more action and features snippets from what are sure to be some kick-ass battle sequences. From the many interviews that director Andrew Stanton has given about the film, he is clearly passionate about the film and is determined to release something great. Check out the full trailer here!
From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”–a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor 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). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
Andrew Stanton’s John Carter arrives in theatres on March 9, 2012.
