Disney has released a fun action-packed film clip from their upcoming sci-fi adventure John Carter. The movie has been getting a lot of positive reviews, more than I was expecting. So that's good news for Disney! It's sounding like this movie is going to surprise a lot of fanboys and fangirls with negative attitudes, which I admit I am guilty of. The footage and trailers I've seen just weren't connecting with me like I hoped it would. I'm still looking forward to seeing it though, and I'm hoping for the best.
The clips features a scene in which John Carter is in a high chase flying pursuit, weaving in and out of some huge CGI obstacles. The film will be released in theaters this week on March 9th, 2012. Watch the clip below and let us know if you think it will live up to your expectations.
Heres' the Synopsis:
From Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes "John Carter"--a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). "John Carter" is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. 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.
