I’ve been looking forward to this adaptation of “Princess of Mars” for a long time now. The series started in the early 1900’s and the story by Edgar Rice Burroughs has been a serious inspiration for movies like Avatar and Star Wars. Now since this movie is coming out after those two films, this movie is going to be criticized as being a ripoff of those movies when in fact, those movies are actually based of this story.
Anyways I really like this trailer as it shows the seriously gigantic scale of the picture and what looks to be some awesome visuals/action. It also didn’t really contain anything worth being worried about and didn’t give too much away, which is a problem in the movie industry these days. John Carter was written and directed by Andrew Stanton who wrote Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Wall*e, and A Bug’s Life so he definitely knows how to write a quality script for all ages but he also directed a few of those too (Wall*e, Finding Nemo, A Bug’s Life). Hopefully this movie gives Burroughs’ fans the movie they’ve been waiting for for decades but also gives the mainstream audience something unique and epic (which it needs to considering the huge budget this movie had).
