I'm dying to see this movie, but it's because I know where JOHN CARTER comes from and how much so many other movies over the years have strip-mined those stories for their own. Edgar Rice Burroughs' books are classics of the genre and well worth the read, and I know fans of the books are chomping at the bit to see this.
I want JOHN CARTER to succeed, if for nothing else that we get more of them. Although everyone's embargoed (and I haven't seen it myself) the general vibe I've gotten from screenings has been positive to very positive. This fan-made trailer seems to do what the official ones have not - sell the legacy of the stories as well as show how good the story is. I like this trailer a lot, and Disney could do worse than just buy this trailer cut from this guy and release it. Here's the trailer:
JOHN CARTER opens March 9th.
