FILM: John Carter New Trailer

It looks like Disney is making a huge push for their live-action film John Carter, and you can understand why. They spent a rumored $250M on this film, giving this the possibility as the biggest bomb in Hollywood history. It’s a little sad though, because I’m thoroughly excited for the film. Andrew Stanton, the director, has been behind the Pixar classics — Wall-E and Finding Nemo — and is given a chance to create something truly great here. The lead actor is a relatively unknown face to the mainstream audience. But for those who are rabid fans of Friday Night Lights (myself, included) have a love affair with Taylor Kitsch aka Tim Riggins.

After the first trailer created a negative buzz and a generally-confused audience, Disney is pulling out all the stops three months before its release. After it released new production photos earlier this week, the company sent Kitsch to Jimmy Kimmel last night to promote the film and now, it has released a brand new trailer — with more guns, battles, and CGI.

The film follows a former military veteran (Taylor Kitsch of Friday Night Lights fame) who is transported to Mars where he becomes embroiled in a conflict with the planet’s inhabitants. In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter realizes that the survival of the planet’s people rests in his hands. John Carter opens March 9, 2012.
