New John Carter trailer on Good Morning America

Nov. 30, 2011by: Paul Tassi

I wrote a post the other day that proclaimed that I believed JOHN CARTER would be a big box office bomb next year for Disney. Nearly all of you misinterpreted that as me saying that the movie would suck, when those are two very different things. Rather, I was commenting that the premise, and subsequently the trailers, seems like a strange thing to bank a tentpole franchise on, particularly where production costs are said to be as high as $250M with a big marketing budget on top of that.

I hope the movie is good, and with director Andrew Stanton that could definitely be the case. Whether that translates into the average moviegoer thinking that the movie is worth seeing is another story, and with unfamiliar characters and an unclear story (at least from the two minute trailers), I do have doubts about the movies appeal outside of a select contingent of fans.

There's a sneak peak of a new trailer that premiered on Good Morning America this morning that has a ton of new footage of Carter (Taylor Kitsch) doing battle with aliens. The full trailer will premiere on Jimmy Kimmel tonight and also on IGN at 9 PST.

Again, the film might be great, and hopefully that would translate into word of mouth support to bring in audiences, but I have trouble believing the concept shown through these trailers will connect with average moviegoers. I'd love to be wrong, but that's just what I think.

Extra Tidbit: I always wanted Taylor Kitsch to get a haircut on Friday Night Lights, but now he looks kind of ordinary.

I'm really diggin' it actually. It doesn't look like it's straying to far from the books either, which I loved. I'll give it a chance.

I didn't hear anything about this film until last week. Trailer looks pretty decent.

Tarzan vs Aliens comes to mind!

The only positive I'll give this film right now -smart Advance poster! I like that Ray Bradbury a la 1960's novel cover type look. The film itself? eh.

Looks pretty damn entertaining. Im just not sure on Kitsch. Nothing really interesting about him. Hopefully he'll prove me wrong.

I'm actually interested in seeing this movie for Lynn Collins and also very interested in what Kitsch can do.

Still haven't seen anything new...

I am still not interested, hopefully the trailer shows us stuff that doesn't put me to sleep.

Right now it is on track to bomb like Conan and for all the same reasons.

This movie is definitely going to bomb.

In that case...

Can Paul Tassi give us a box office number so we can hold him accountable to it?

Considering this is a spring movie and not summer, with epic visuals like that, it might succeed in the same way 300 did. I think that clip does a better job of selling the movie to audiences.

Awesome

That footage looked pretty epic. Hopefully the new trailer will shut up some of the doubters. Next year will be a great one for cinema.

For being more a 30-second music video than a trailer, that did look pretty nifty.

That's some crazy ass footage, looking really cool so far.
I can most definitely see the big budget from that footage. Can't wait to see the whole thing.

The riff actually comes from a Led Zeppelin song called Kashmir that Puff Daddy ripped off, as he is notorious for using the music of more talented artists for his own financial gain.
