You know what; I’m kind of looking forward to seeing John Carter now. Disney has released an extended clip of the film, followed directly by the final trailer. The clip is, for the most part, really good. It reminds me a little bit of the pod-racing scene from Episode 1, but in a good way.
The pod-racing scene in Episode 1 was easily the best scene of the film. Sure, the rest of the film kind of fell into disastrous results, but at least it had that one scene! This latest John Carter scene looks better and up until this point there wasn’t a single thing that I was looking forward to in the film.
The scene gives me hope that maybe there is a good movie hiding somewhere in the production and that maybe Disney just doesn’t know how to market it. The trailer that follows the clip is beautiful to look at, but still kind of vague and confusing, story wise.
It gives me hope and this late in the game that’s all I need. I want John Carter to be a big, interesting, sci-fi epic that will spawn some sequels, but only if it’s done with care.
John Carter stars Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins and Willem Dafoe.
