This NerdBastard was on the fence about spending any money to see this movie in theaters. My biggest fear was that this would be a He-Man / Carebears look at the pulp fiction masterpiece that is John Carter Warlord of Mars. In it’s day the series was edgy, bloody, and just great fun.
After watching the trailer my fears are somewhat allayed. The effects looks good and the scope seems big enough. The battle scenes made me think of the wonderful battles of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Take a look and let us know what you think, will this get you into that movie theater seat?
Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights) stars with Willem Dafoe(Scare the crap out of you movie star), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), and Lynn Collins(Wolverine). John Carter hits theaters on March 9th 2012.
