I think Disney’s John Carter still faces an uphill battle when it comes to generating/earning the interest of an audience. The good news for Disney is that there are still a couple months left to build that interest. If you’ve missed the recent trailer, you can check it out here, and now the studio is putting out images that really emphasize the fact that there are some giant creatures in the movie. Check them out below.
Makes sense to emphasize the big creatures in the poster that also trumpets the IMAX release of the movie. We’ll keep hopes up for the story and characters in this one, but it will probably look spectacular on the big IMAX screens, at the very least.
John Carter stars Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy, Daryl Sabara, Polly Walker, Bryan Cranston, Thomas Hayden Church, and Willem Dafoe. It is directed by Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) and opens on March 9th.
From Academy Award(R)-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.
