After months of promotion, posters, photos, TV spots, and teases, John Carter‘s promotionial run is nearly at an end. The film releases in nearly two weeks, and we’ve seen John Carterplastered nearly everywhere, while sequel news has run rampant, and projections are being made for the 3D alien adaptation. Now, it’s time for Disney to relax, sit back, and hopefully rake in the money, as they release the final trailer forJohn Carter, which reveals much more of Mark Strong’s villain, as well as highlights a good deal of the film’s action.
John Carter is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
John Carter finally hits theaters on March 9th.
