John Carter is released in just a few days and two friends of mine who saw the movie in a press screening in Paris just loved it! I will see it later this week and post my review. Disney marketing has been surprisingly bad in the promotion of the film but i've been told that the movie is so good that it should be a success anyway. In a last - desperate? - attempt to introduce the story and the John Carter character Disney just released a ten minutes clip which are basically the ten first minutes of the movie, i.e the "western" part of the film, before he "goes" on Mars... I remind you that John Carter tells the tale of war-weary, former military captain John Carter, who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly involved in a conflict of epic proportions between the inhabitants of the planet.
An extended version of the fight with the white ape - on Mars, this time - was also released recently and here it is below.
