“John Carter” trailer promises epic, sci-fi thrills


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Much like “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol,” which marks the feature-film debut of animator Brad Bird, we’re predominantly interested in next year’s “John Carter” because it’s the first live-action effort from Andrew Stanton, the genius brain behind Pixar’s masterpieces “Finding Nemo” and “WALL-E.” Basically, I’d follow Stanton anywhere.

Even to Mars.

That’s where Civil War hero John Carter (Taylor Kitsch, “Friday Night Lights”) finds himself when he’s beamed from our planet to theirs in order to help in an intergalactic war. The premise sounds fantastic, but the marketing materials, so far, are leaning a little to close to Disney’s “Prince of Persia.” And why can Carter leap tall buildings in a single bound?

A new trailer for the sci-fi epic, based on the novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, has made its way online. It gives us a better idea of the challenges Carter will face on the red planet, as well as the spaceships and alien creatures Stanton’s team have devised for the potential blockbuster.

“John Carter” co-stars Willem Dafoe and Lynn Collins. It opens in theaters on March 9, 2012.

Here’s the trailer:
