Disney has released another featurette for John Carter, and it includes some new footage that we haven't seen yet. The video also features behind the scenes interviews with director Andrew Stanton and the cast of the film talking about how the original Edgar Rice Burrough's novel Princess of Mars inspired everything we've seen done in sci-fi fantasy films over the years. I'll be honest, I'm still a bit worried about this adaptation. I'm not seeing the epic awesomeness in the footage I've seen that I imagined while reading the book. It's got too much of a Disney polish. I'll still see the movie because I'm a huge fan of the story, I'm just hoping it exceeds my expectations.
The film stars Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins and Willem Dafoe, Mark Strong, Bryan Cranston, James Purefoy, Dominic West, Thomas Haden Church, and Ciarán Hinds.
Here's the Synopsis:
The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor 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 (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn 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.
John Carter arrives in theaters on March 9th, 2012. Check out the new video featurette below. As the release date for the film gets closer are you getting more excited?
