I really enjoyed the film adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough’s legendary Virginian Sci-Fi hero, John Carter. To be fair there were some things I thought didn’t quite work but it by no means made me regret spending my hard earned money for a seat in the auditorium.
There is something that I am very upset with though…and that is the marketing of the film, it’s been talked about by almost every site on the web, and as can be seen below from the John Carter Files YouTube channel there are a great number of fans that refuse to be content with the media that has been offered for the film.

With the upcoming Walt Disney film version of John Carter of Mars set to hit the Silver Screen on March 9th, many fans of the classic literature by Edgar Rice Burroughs have felt the trailers and TV spots that have been presented have not necessarily shown the majesty and importance of the character.
Well, the John Carter Files YouTube Channel decided to help with this fan trailer using the footage already presented in other media. As they say on the posting of the video they are fans of the book and just want to help Disney get as many people as interested in the movie as they can. I like this idea. I LOVE their trailer.
There is a new poster out that I’ve yet to see in theaters around my neck of the woods, thanks to IMP Awards for sharing it.
A big thank you to Ain’t It Cool News for the heads up on this YouTube project.
