Wow, now this is just looking sooo much better. A few months back Disney released one major league teaser for Andrew Stanton’s film adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter. Seeming to have a Cowboys & Aliens meets Avatar vibe some may have been put off by the strange alchemy of stories/genres but this second trailer should get a good number of naysayers on the JCM bandwagon. Earlier today Good Morning America gave us a sneak peek (thanks to First Showing for the heads up) but now we have the official second trailer in its entirety and it doesn’t disappoint one bit. Have a look and enjoy!!
Pixar superstar Andrew Stanton is at the helm for this, his first live action feature, and things are really looking great. Following Brad Bird’s live action film debut Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, I can’t wait to see how Stanton translates his style from the computer screen to the big screen for this epic. Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins lead an uberly impressive cast sporting the likes of Mark Strong, Bryan Cranston, Dominic West, Thomas Haden Church, Ciarán Hinds, James Purefoy and Willem Dafoe. Wow about sums it up huh?
Disney will be bringning John Carter of Mars to theaters for a late Winter release on March 9th, 2012. This has my interest considerably piqued but I can’t be the only one. What do you think? Anyone impressed with this second look at JCM??
