Hmmm….Well, it looks to me like one of Disney’s foreign distributors has jumped the gun and uploaded some supposedly embargoed John Carter clips before the authorized date. They are raw clips directly from the digital press kit — complete with the “not-intended-for-consumer-consumption” slate at the head of each one showing that it’s been delivered in a “ready for dubbing” format. I’m a little bit worried that having all these come out now, 25 days out, may not be the best in the long run for the promotion of the film. On the other hand — they’re there, and so far only a few hundred people have seen them.
There are a total of about 10 clips–some from the movie, some of them cast interviews.
Here are two clips from the film that are pretty widely “out there” now — and are good ones.
Here is the clip entitled “Virginia” — which shows John Carter, played by Taylor Kitsch, meeting Tars Tarkas, played by Willem Dafoe.
And here is the clip “Mars” in which John Carter is schooled in astronomy by Dejah Thoris, played by Lynn Collins. I particularly like this one — the trailers need more actual scenes like this. The chemistry and relationship looks promising…..
