The John Carter Teaser Trailer has premiered. Andrew Stanton‘s John Carter (2012) teaser trailer stars Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, and Ciaran Hinds. John Carter‘s plot synopsis: “John Carter is a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). John Carter is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.”
They had to make Taylor Kitsch look like Jake Gyllenhaal from Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and make the film look like a mixture of that film and The Scorpion King. I was going to write this teaser trailer off but I have to admit it got good. The music helped. “The song in the trailer is a Peter Gabriel cover of ‘My Body Is A Cage’ by Arcade Fire.
John Carter also stars Dominic West, James Purefoy, Daryl Sabara, Polly Walker, Bryan Cranston, Thomas Hayden Church, Don Stark, Jonathan Hyde, Raad Rawi, and Willem Dafoe.
