Walt Disney Pictures has officially announced the release dates for two of its most anticipated movies for 2012. Both of which I am very much looking forward to seeing.
The Andrew Stanton directed film John Carter of Mars will hit theaters on June 8th 2012. This film based on the first book of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Series. The story chronicles the journey of Civil-War veteran John Carter, who finds himself battling a new and mysterious war amidst a host of strange Martian inhabitants, including Tars Tarkas and Dejah Thoris. The film has a great cast of actors which includes 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.
Tim Burton's Frankenweenie is scheduled to be released on March 9th 2012. The film was written by John August, and is based on Burton's 1984 live-action short film about a pet dog who is brought back to life by his owner. Although the original film was live-action, this full-length adaptation will be made using stop-motion animation, and it will be in 3D.
