Ten Minutes Of John Carter Online
Meet the man before he goes to Mars...

As you’ll likely be aware by now, director Andrew Stanton’s sci-fi epic John Carter finally hits our cinemas on Friday. You can head here to see what we thought of it, but if the trailers and clips so far have left you in two minds about whether you might enjoy the movie, Disney has placed ten minutes of footage online for you to sample. Check it out below.

Don’t go expecting any big Mars (sorry, 'Barsoom') -set battles here: this is from the opening of the film where we meet Carter’s nephew, one Edgar Rice Burroughs (Daryl Sabara), who has been summoned by the executor of our hero’s will to read his journal. We’re then introduced to the Civil War veteran as he gets into – and almost as quickly out of – trouble in a dusty Western town. Oh, and then he has some problems with the natives before something catches everyone’s attention. Just what is it? Aha! That you’ll have to head to the cinema to find out. He’s a crafty one, that Stanton.

With Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Willem Dafoe, Samantha Morton, Thomas Haden Church, Dominic West and Mark Strong among the cast, John Carter lands, as mentioned, on March 9.

John Carter
I thoroughly enjoyed myself for 2 hours. Having read some lukewarm reviews and all manner of feedback comments, I do wonder why people nitpick over science fiction films details/plot/alien life forms etc etc. It's SCIENCE FICTION, so it's not real. It's sheer escapism and I thought it was cool. Taylor Kitch did a super job for his first major film role, Mark Strong was an excellent baddie as always, though I would like so see him in a non-baddie role for a change... All in all it was great More

RE: Bryan Cranston...
Ten whole minutes of a blockbuster posted online, and yet hardly any comments.... JOHN CARTER apparently has terrible tracking, and it seems the film may well bomb/under perform. Can't say that much uosets me. The perception seems to be that it's AVATAR with a boring color palet. My interest was done in when I saw the design for the white apes. It's that same generic weightless CGI look I see in so many modern movie monsters, where they pause their attack to roar with a giant oversized mouth, a More
