Here is the first trailer for Disney’s adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ John Carter of Mars, simply called “John Carter”. We’ve been trying to play and discuss this trailer on the Film Actually show for the last two weeks and for some reason we just never get to it so I thought I’ll just post it up here and be done with it.
This adaptation has been kicking around Hollywood for some time and now it is finally coming to cinema screens. The only problem is that the film looks a little cheesy and camp. I am starting to get a little bit of a “Flash Gordon” vibe from this but it is early days and this is only a first trailer. I’ll reserve judgment when I see a little more.
“John Carter” opens in March 2012.
