Two new clips for Disney’s John Carter have found their way online, along with a featurette which shows those involved with the film boasting about how good it will be. One of the actual clips from the film see’s John Carter make a narrow escape by jumping off a cliff with the gorgeous Lynn Collins in his arms, and I must admit that the film itself looks harmless fun but very enjoyable.
Then there is the promotional clip with those involved saying how the film will give audiences the ride of their life, and the infamous White Ape will be breathtaking. Judging from what I have seen so far they are not far wrong, and in a funny sort of way I am actually looking forward to this. Every trailer has spent plenty of time showing off the Giant White Ape, and the creature looks stunning, so there’s a very good chance the rest of the films effects will be amazing too.
I expect good things from director Andrew Stanton, I mean he directed Wall-E, one of my favourite Pixar films. I hope and prey that John Carter turns out good. Check out the three clips at the bottom of this post.
Taylor Kitsch stars as Carter alongside Mark Strong, Willem Dafoe, Bryan Cranston, Dominic West, Ciaran Hinds, James Purefoy, Thomas Haden Church and Lynn Collins. Disney will release Carter in UK cinemas 9th March 2012.
