The French poster for John Carter that we’ve all seen previously is this one, which to me feels “very Disney” indeed. I remember when I first saw this I though, hmmm….John Carter a warm and fuzzy road movie? At least there were not white apes in it.
But now Daria Brooks from the John Carter Sequel Facebook Group found a new (to us) official French poster which she came across at ComicCon, and which I subsequently tracked down online. Very different feel, huh? And oh…..quick, find the Disney logo. It’s there, just not shouting at you like in all the other posters.
Anyone else struck by how radically different (and yet oh-so-obviously-an-improvement) this one is — and also how much it is similar to some of the fan posters that were made? A big percentage of the fan posters had Dejah Thoris in the particularly pose on the cover, and rightly so. In truth, there were probably three or four fan posters using this approach that were better than this, but still it’s a radical departure among the official posters seen elsewhere.
But what is really strange is how these two posters reflect the same movie. Just very bizarre.
