Just a few days ago we got our first look at one of the creatures in Andrew Stanton‘s John Carter and today we have six new images from SFX. The magazine confirms we’ll see a brand-new trailer, which will debut this Thursday. After Wall-E, Stanton is continuing in the sci-fi genre, only transferring to his live-action debut here. I’m getting a big Cowboys & Aliens vibe with these new stills, but with Stanton being a far superior director than Favreau, I hope something much better is in store. Check them out above and below.
Based of Edgar Rice Burroughs‘ work, the action adventure stars Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy, Daryl Sabara, Polly Walker, Bryan Cranston, Thomas Hayden Church and Willem Dafoe.
From Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”–a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “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.
