The full John Carter trailer is here for your viewing pleasure

Dec. 1, 2011by: Mike Sampson

Yesterday, we got some weird preview of the JOHN CARTER trailer from star Taylor Kitsch who sat in Times Square with the hosts of "Good Morning America" - because, you know how all the housewives are huge Edgar Rice Burroughs fans.

Well today we have the full trailer for you to watch in HD that doesn't have any screaming girls in the background. And?...

It's certainly ambitious. But then again, GREEN LANTERN looked ambitious too. I also find it peculiar that they ditched the "OF MARS" part of the title because it sounded too sci-fi. Meanwhile, have you seen this trailer? It's dripping in sci-fi. There's no way around that. I don't know if it's just me but it looks like PRINCE OF PERSIA and THE PHANTOM MENACE had a baby.

Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.

Beige Planet Mars.
Taylor Kitsch, thy name is... Taylor Kitsch.
I dunno, man, it just looks all kinds of shitty and four-arms-y.

I'm interested...

I've been interested in this movie from the get-go, partly because its a story that Andrew Stanton took 3 years to develop in his mind before moving forward with production, so i have hope, and because it's fascinating science fiction. Plus the man cares about the stories. He didn't just land the job and decided to shit out a movie for a quick buck. He genuinely wants it to be good, at least in his eyes as a movie-goer. I for one am very curious to see what Stanton was able to do with live

I for one am very curious to see what Stanton was able to do with live actors and a stricter production time. He's a proven storyteller. A movie trailer isn't the movie itself. People are too ready to shrug this movie off before knowing how it turned out. I'll reserve judgment until i see reviews and feedback.

With Disney pumping such a ridiculous amount of money into this, why does it look like they totally skimped on the CGI?

it does kinda look like

Phantom Menace and Prince of Persia had offspring but also a little 'Conan the Barbarian' and also oddly enough 'Chronicles of Riddick' too, and as the trailer states, it should have been John Carter of Earth... because thats where he's from.

Blah...I have not been following this at all but it looks like an equally bad version of Phantom Menace. All I could think of was the stupid Gungins when they showed the battle scene, and hello the arena!

Whomever animated those big ships must have been in charge of editing the trailer as they really want you to notice them. Most likely they will be in the movie for about 20 seconds, if all holds true.

This will definitely be a check it out for free movie.

Eh...

Did anyone else think the music was a bit much? Whoever the composer is, they need to stop listening to Led Zeppelin, if it got any closer to Kashmir Jimmy Page might sue. Plus for Mars, this place looks just like Tattooine. This whole thing looks like a great excuse for Disney to make sell more toys made in China.

Eh

I was kinda looking forward to this movie until watching this trailer. Now, I just don't know. Spot on with Star Wars comparison. And that music choice???? A little too cliche "This. Is. Most. Epic. Movie. EVER." which I really was not vibing on. I got cool, fun sci-fi movie before, but now I just don't know =/

I think kids will eat this up. It looks beyond epic. They should have kept "of Mars" in the title though. No sense in dropping it.

Generic, cliched bullshit. I don't care if the book was the first of its kind. At this day and age, it is painfully uncreative.

@jjrakman: THIS DAY AND AGE. It's all in those 4 words. I'm not going to hold your hand through the explanation. Figure it out.

Apparently I need to hold your hand. No matter what day and age it is, if you were the first, then you'll always be original.

By the time they did the LOTR films, the fantasy genre had been filled up with cliche fantasy crap like dungeons and dragons, but it didn't make LOTR cliche because it invented the genre.

Disney blows.

I'm enjoying John Carter Of Mars current comic incarnation. The only thing that could ruin the movie for me would be Disney's so called "PG" policy they inflict on most of their films.

Much better.
But if they want to ditch the Phantom Menace comparisons, I would suggest reddening up the Martian landscape a bit so it doesn't resemble Tatooine.
Other than that, I agree that it more closely resembles Heavy Metal goodness.

There are too many reasons why this movie will fail and not enough reasons why it will succeed. Also looks like Phantom Menace, was half expecting to see Jar Jar.

That's a pretty cool trailer, and I don't think Disney needs to worry about the box office too much. The toy line for this will be insane, I don't think there was anything in the trailer that couldn't be made into a toy that every kid will love, and kids know that if you own a toy for a movie you haven't seen then you're just a total douche.

Always count on Mark Strong...

Even if the movie does suck which I doubt it will under Stanton's eye, Mark will always be there to save the day just like GREEN LANTERN.

Well this trailer shows an impressive scale and otherworldliness, top quality design and cgi. Looks more comparable to Avatar in scope, than to Prince of Persia or Green Lunktern and specially to Coneheadnan...

I'm thinking it looks more like ATTACK OF THE CLONES & PRINCE OF PERSIA had a baby.

I'd sit though it, but looks like nothing special. The anticipation factor is low.

This is not gonna be good for Disney

obviously, they're Disney and will recover, but I can't imagine this making its money back, no way.

It looks like elements of 5 movies I've already seen mashed together, nothing terrible, nothing amazing.

The trailer looked ok. This film will either bomb like Prince of Persia, or make 300 million. But I think reviews will have to be good for that to happen.

With Carter being able to jump around like that it will hopefully make for some special battle scenes.

It opens March 9th, isnt that right in the middle of March break (Canadian here, so not too sure of the American custom)?

Advertising flood

I would be willing to bet this is simply the beginning of the advert behind this movie. Once the new year hits (my prediction is) Disney will market the shit out of this movie, it won't do as bad as Conan or PoP.

This definitely drove my interest up a few notches. I am not sure how well it will preform at the box office, but this trailer is making the movie look much better than I anticipated.

No, it was just "Kashmir". The song has a pretty lengthy instrumental section and it sounds like they just looped it.

Also, "Led Zepp much?". Can you explain to me what these words mean? Because they don't string together a coherent sentence or even a coherent thought. Why would anyone type those words in that order? Also, you punctuated it with a question mark. Is it a question? I don't understand.

Bombtastic

Even if this movie is good, it will bomb because the lack of people willing to see Prince of Persia meet Conan. Both films failed and this will too.

As someone said before the only money to be made off this is with toys.
