John Carter of FULL Trailer!

We had the smaller version of the full trailer for John Carter (of Mars, dammit!) this morning on ABC (because the target demographic is obviously old women…), and now we get the full full trailer, which premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live and IGN, because someone in marketing remembered John Carter should have many males in the audience.

This looks better than that tv clip, so at least it looks like it will be fun. It better be!!!

Also I’m loving the random comments saying this is an Avatar ripoff. Way to know nothing about nothing, buddy!

John Carter of Trailer

Here’s a nice crappy version of the John Carter (of Mars, dammit!) trailer that isn’t supposed to drop until tomorrow. Will update when a non-ABC logoed version shows up. This trailer looks better, has more Martians and action. Will have a more detailed analysis soon, but for now I am Tars Tarkas of Stuck at Work.

The “John Carter of” jokes will never stop, by the way. Get used to them!

John Carter of High Resolution Images

Check out this Apple Gallery of resolution images for the John Carter (of Mars, dammit!) film, including the recently released images. And a brand new poster. That looks better than the previous poster. This is all leading up to the new trailer that comes out Thursday. The higher-resolution stills look waaaaaay better bigger, but it still looks a lot like Episode 1, between the CGI aliens and the craft that looks like a podracer. If John Carter says “Yippee!!”, I’m burning down the planet.

John Carter footage shown at D23

If you were lucky/connected enough to get to go to D23 Expo – Disney’s showoff party for their D23 fanclub – then you got to see some footage from the new John Carter (of Mars, dammit!) movie. Reports are on both io9 and AICN, but as both of those sites seem to be competing on who can mindlessly love everything ever even slightly nerdy, take their enthusiasm with a grain of bitter reality. Luckily, AICN’s report is by Quint, the least impressed by shiny things of the writers there.

Taylor Kitsch, Willem Dafoe and Lynn Collins were with director Andrew Stanton as he showed the footage.

AICN sez:

I still have the same basic problem with footage I’ve already seen (in that Mars isn’t nearly fantastic enough…

However Woola’s introduction scene they showed today is the very first thing I’ve seen from Stanton’s John Carter that I love without reservation.

The rest of the footage they described back in July, around the same time others got first looks.

io9 sez:

Before Stanton and the actors left the D23 stage, they played one last bit of footage. Carter and Tarkas finds themsleves in a Thark arena about to be executed. Tarkas is badly injured and Carter’s leg is chained to a rock. A colossal, six-limbed white ape is then released. It charges them, swatting them out of the way like gnats. Carter recovers and starts leaping over the white ape. He seems about ready to break the chain tying him to the rock, which is when a rather bored-sounding Thark in the stands declares, “Release the other one.”

You can read the links for full descriptions.

D23? I haven't seen the first 22 D's!

Willem Dafoe talks John Carter of Mars

Willem Dafoe chatted up io9 and gave some info on shooting John Carter of Mars, which starts next week, actually. So I guess read the interview, or something. That’s why I linked it. In case you couldn’t figure it out. So read it already.
