Walt Disney Studios released this clip from their upcoming John Carter film, scheduled to hit the Silver Screen on March 9th. I really like what I’m seeing here and I think we are finally seeing a bit of that magic they brought over from the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs novels.
Be warned there are some small SPOILERS in this clip!
Even if for some reason the movie fails to deliver, but from what I’m seeing on early reviews this doesn’t appear to be the case, at the very least it causing reprints of the Burroughs novels. I saw three different reprint versions at my local Barnes and Noble yesterday!
I’ll always tell you the honest truth and that is I’m not 100% sold on this film adaptation of the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs series of novels, John Carter of Mars. I would hazard a guess and say that I am however about 85% sold after seeing the epic scope of the trailer…I just don’t know if I agree with the music from Arcade Fire they’ve used for it.
Thanks to Walt Disney Studios UK for uploading the trailer!
John Carter stars Taylor Kitsch, Mark Strong, Willem Dafoe, James Purefoy, and Lynn Collins. It was directed by Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) based on his own screenplay with help by Michael Chabon (Wonder Boys, Spider-Man 2), the film will hit the Silver Screen on March 9th, 2011.
