Trailer Watch: John Carter lacks a lot of things

John Carter works on some interesting ideas, but the story will have to come through if this has to succeed.

The first teaser of the film really fails to impress. The adaptation is a little confusing with the lack of any Mars footage in the film. There is nothing in this trailer that will tell a filmgoer who is unfamiliar with the books will find it alright with the words Mars missing from the film.

The trailer is only fine and it seems to be missing a punch. The FX work on this film also seems to be a little unfinished. The transition to Live Action will be something to watch out for the director as well.

Andrew Stanton is a sure thing when it delivering fun adventures with a heart, so I bet he will deliver some kind of epic with this new film.

John Carter opens on March 9 th 2012. Tell us what you think of this unusual trailer.

John has a keen sense of what ticks in the world of film. He can also be seen in three distinct short film titled Woken Shell, The Tea Shop in the Moon and The Waiting. Cinema has been the basic diet he has been on for the last 10 years. His personality can be judged by the choices of his films.
