Is this the John Carter you've been looking for?

Feb. 23, 2012by: Paul Shirey

Recently, this fan-made trailer for JOHN CARTER appeared online and has been making the rounds, being touted as the marketing venture Disney should have made for the film.  It's a nicely cut trailer, although suffers from a few music/sound overlaps, that serves as more of a mash-up of all the JOHN CARTER footage that's been shared thus far. 

Take a look:

Personally, I don't think it's as big of a game changer as it's been made out to be.  The strength of the trailer is that it ties JOHN CARTER to Earth and we can make out, ever so slightly, what's going on (i.e. John Carter discovering the device that takes him to Mars, etc.).  Disney included snippets of this in the original trailer, but have ignored it in subsequent ones.  Perhaps that was the mistake.

Since the Twitter embargo has been lifted for reviewers, a slew of them have been rolling in and none of them are similar to GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE.  In fact, there hasn't been a single review that likens it to excrement. 

Check 'em out for yourself:

Extra Tidbit: Expect a third trailer from Disney to be hitting just in time for the final marketing push. Do you think it will be more of the same or do you think it'll be a bold change of course?

My favorite still has to be the teaser with Peter Gabriel's My Body is a Cage.

Someone needs to be fired.

Disney needs to fire the poeple behind their marketing for John Carter, and hire this guy. This trailer explained more and got more intrested in seeing this movie than any of the trailers that have been shown on tv.

The official teaser and trailer got me amped for a movie that didn't sound like I would dig it at all.

This fan-made trailer looks more mainstream/bland than the original 1.

No thanks.
