Earlier today we posted a preview of the first theatrical trailer for the Andrew Stanton-directed John Carter. Sadly, however, the video wasn't that great quality-wise and was surrounded by inane chatter from the hosts of Good Morning America (at the very least I am glad that they didn't talk over the footage like Entertainment Tonight does). Fortunately you no longer have to deal with that version because now, courtesy of Disney, we have the full trailer.
Check it out below!
I do like this extended version more than what we saw this morning - particularly the intro with the battle against the White Apes in the gladiator arena - but I must admit that I'm still not 100% sold. The movie does look epic, and features some incredible visuals, but I'm just not seeing the substance. The thing that gives me hope is the presence of Andrew Stanton, who was brought up into the filmmaking world by Pixar where story comes before everything. I guess we'll just have to wait until the movie hits theaters on March 9, 2012 to see if it all works.
John Carter stars 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 and is based on the classic Barsoom series of novels by science-fiction legend Edgar Rice Burroughs.
