Right, but they would recognize "From the Writer/Director of <i>Finding Nemo</i> and <i>WALL•E</i>."

A lot of the footage looked like Prince of Persia meets Cowboys and Aliens, and though it doesn't look super original or groundbreaking, it looks like it will be a well made film. They did a good job of making it not look like just another action/sci fi/fantasy movie with the cool song and the way it was edited. This def peaked my interest in seeing it.

I agree about the song. It made the trailer seem more quality instead of just some more "insert epic choir here" trailer music. But other than that, they're going to have to work harder to get my interest. I thought the "period" scene in the beginning looked rather nice, though. If only there was more of that throughout. :P

Lets just hope the marketers don't screw-up this one. I'm one of the few that liked Persia. Mars might be in the title, but at least the word "Moms" isn't.

I can't wait for this movie. Love the original source and the comic. I hope that 4 eye tiger of Dejah Thoris' is in it.

Yeah, but I don't think the right demographic will be attracted to that.

I agree. I just watched the trailer, and that looks better than the scenes on Mars; nevertheless, it looks somewhat interesting, although the cartoonish appearance of the alien looked a bit odd. I loved the music though, and Taylor Kitsch looks good.

I was just looking at the IMDB page for John Carter. Didn't realize Taylor Kitsch, who plays John Carter, is from Kelowna - where I lived for the past 12 years before moving to Calgary this past June. Kelowna has another Disney connection, the head office for Club Penguin is located there. Very interesting...

I'm sure since a local guy has the lead role, there will probably be some special premier event back in K Town. 8)

Andrew Stanton Q&A: Making 'John Carter', the Importance of Animators, and the Secret of Pixar’s Success
http://www.denofgeek.com/movies/1149967 ... ccess.html

Quote:
Q: What can you tell us about the possibility of parts two and three? Will they be shot back to back?

A: We bought the rights to the first three books when we first started. I said to them, “Look, I’m usually the guy at Pixar who’s most reluctant to do the sequel". The irony’s not lost on me that, here I am saying we should plan for more, because all eleven books were written by the 60s. They were all written before I was born. I was introduced to them as a series, and so I wanted to launch them properly. My fan wish is that we’ll go to all those stories and make more.

Whether I do them or not, I thought, let’s set it off right, from the off. Because you never get time back. The worse case scenario is that you’ll plan for more but only make one. But what I’d hate is that you’d plan for one with no preparation for the others, because it’ll show. It’ll really bite you in the back end. So I never expected anyone to say we’d definitely do more than one, because it’s a huge risk for them. I didn’t expect them to be.

It’s a huge chunk of change to make something this big. So it made complete sense to me, from their side of the fence, to wait until the movie’s out. But that two to three years of planning, I’ll never get back. So the worst case is that it was a writing exercise for me, to just plan the others and never do them. I’ll never have any regrets, even planning three all along.


Quote:
Q: Obviously, so many other films have pilfered ideas from the John Carter books. Were you worried that your film will seem over familiar?

A: Well, I wouldn’t have made it if I was worried about that, because there’s no way around it. You may as well not make it if you’re worried about that – it’s a fool’s errand. So, that’s just the reality. I know where it’s from, so my big thing was, how do I make it feel like it felt like to read it?

I mean, there’s a million cop movies with car chases in them. There’s a million romantic stories where she runs away, and will he get her back? You could chase that for ever. When you watch this film alone, does it feel like its own thing? I just wanted it to be pure for what it was. So, again, if I cared too much about that, I shouldn’t have made it.


Quote:
Q: Why did you drop Mars from the title?

A: Here’s the real truth of it: I changed A Princess Of Mars to John Carter Of Mars. I don’t like to get fixated on it, but I changed Princess Of Mars [the original name of the first book in the series]. I changed that because not a single boy would go. And then the other truth is, no girl would go to see John Carter Of Mars. So I said, “I don’t won’t to do anything out of fear, I hate doing things out of fear, but I can’t ignore that truth.”

And all the time we were making this big character story, it just so happens that they happen to be in this big, spectacular new environment, but it’s not the spectacle, it’s the investment. I thought, I’ve really worked hard to make all of this an origin story. It’s about a guy becoming John Carter. So I’m not misrepresenting what this movie is, it’s John Carter. And if that gets people going that were being simple-minded and not gone, great, because, believe me, Mars is going to stick on any other film. But by then, it won’t have a stigma to it.

Disney needs to step up their marketing efforts on this one. The trailer and the photos so far looks really good and this movie might be great, but the posters and the way Disney have promoted the movie so far is lacking. And the title; "John Carter". Bland and boring. Should have called it John Carter of Mars. This might "bomb" at the box office like Prince of Persia, or it could be really popular if Disney markets it the right way... I'm hoping for a new franchise here, but if it does not earn enough money, then the greedy Disney suits won't approve of more John Carter-movies.

What do you think? Personally, I'm not impressed; it looks like a cross between Prince of Persia and Avatar. Also, the music they chose for the trailer is over-played.

Wow, those look awful. This movie looks like it has way too many CG aliens and way too many battle scenes to hold my interest. The nice music is gone too. :( Oh well, I wasn't expecting it to be any good anyway.

Tarzan in Space :lol:

I'm still looking forward to it though. It looks like a great popcorn flick.

Even though it seems that it will be a generic case of brainless style-over-substance, I still have faith in this film because the great Andrew Stanton is director. Also, I'm intrigued by the story (I've got to look into the source material soon) and I like Taylor Kitsch.

This Japanese trailer shows more footage:

I was disappointed with Prince of Persia, but this looks good. I'm not familiar with the source material at all, but it looks good...
