New Footage Revealed in John Carter Featurette
02.02.12 by Ryan
After a January that only offered a poster or two, some new footage — 9 seconds — of Walt Disney Pictures' adaptation of John Carter was revealed in a Super Bowl TV Spot preview. With the Big Game and full spot still a few days away, at least more new footage can be seen in a recently released featurette.
Based on The Princess of Mars, the first novel in pulp fiction author Edgar Rice Burroughs's 11-volume Barsoom (Mars) series, the movie follows John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) as he goes from being a Civil War veteran to inexplicably waking up with newfound abilities on Mars. There he's quickly embroiled in a conflict between the planet's inhabitants.
John Carter was adapted by director Andrew Stanton (Wall-E) with Michael Chabon. The cast includes Willem Dafoe as Tars Tarkas, Lynn Collins as Dejah Thoris, James Purefoy as Kantos Kan, Samantha Morton as Sola, Dominic West as Sab Than, Thomas Haden Church as Tal Hajus, Polly Walker as Sarkoja, Ciarán Hinds as Tardos Mors, Mark Strong as Matai Shang, and Bryan Cranston as Powell.
