Walt Disney Studios Australia’s YouTube channel has uploaded an extended clip of the White Ape arena battle from John Carter. Given as how this is one of the key scenes of the movie, you may not want to watch and spoil it for when you see the film. On the other hand, it’s a pretty great scene.
After that clip there’s another new trailer for John Carter that impressively communicates the ‘adventure’ part of the film, but it fails to capture the whole story and some of the elements that I think will drive audiences to see the film.
Did you watch?
The Disney marketing department seems unable to grasp that it’s the story that matters, not a bunch of action sequences and static shots of people looking sincere. This FAN-made trailer is far better than any of Disney’s: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BxeHQY1NuM
I can’t wait for this movie. Am truly excited being a fan of the original book series. However, Disney’s Marketing attempt on this film has been a complete failure. I’m very concerned as the tracking for the film is very low and is expected to bomb.
