Check out this preview of an even larger preview for John Carter (formally of Mars) that will premiere during the Super Bowl on Sunday. It’s short and sweet, but it includes a chance to win a trip to next year’s Super Bowl, soooo – that makes it worth something, right?
I’m finding it difficult to get excited for this flick. I’m hoping for the best, but for some reason I get Clash of the Titans flashback whenever I watch any footage. I should have more faith in director Andrew Stanton, and for his sake I hope its successful. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
John Carter tells the story 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). 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 directed the adaptation of the classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The film arrives in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on March 9. 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 star in the film.
Also, make sure you stay tuned because I’m betting this is the first of many pre-Super Bowl teasers we’ll be sharing all this week.
What did you think of the John Carter tease? Are you more excited than I?
