They just released a new trailer for the John Carter of Mars movie, due out in April. It’s too early to judge quality, but the look seems to get the tone right.

Jeff Carlisle posted this on facebook today with the words: “I still don’t quite know what to make of this. You see something in your head for so long that no other version seems quite right–but I trust Andrew Stanton. He has great storytelling abilities. The Martians wear too much clothing–but they always would have to for a PG-13…”

“You see something in your head for so long …” is exactly right. I’m not sure what would look right to me, unless Frank Frazetta hand-animated the whole thing.

I pictured the Tharks being bulkier, and John Carter older, and I did not anticipate feathers on the flying ships. It doesn’t look like they’re using the plot from “Princess of Mars,” the first John Carter book, although that story would be hard to film.

It may be hard to accept a John Carter who’s not Antonio Sabato, Jr. I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for the Asylum Princess of Mars.

    Huh, I didn’t know they were making a “Prince of Persia 2.” I didn’t think the first one did well enough to warrant a sequel. Color me surprised.

  • Tom Williams says:

    It’s alright. I think slapping the Disney brand at the top was a bad decision. Didn’t this partly kill the Rocketeer’s box office? That’s the kiss of death for an action movie unless it’s animated… and from Pixar.
