JOHN CARTER Battles White Apes, Saves the Princess in New Clip and Featurette

     February 24, 2012


Disney has released a new clip and featurette for director Andrew Stanton’s John Carter that will satisfy your need for action and romance respectively. First up is a clip that shows the titular hero, played by Taylor Kitsch, as he battles for his life in the Barsoomian (ie Martian) version of gladiatorial games. Alongside Carter is a badly wounded Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe), a Martian warrior who is being tested for signs of weakness by pitting him against the ferocious White Apes. Those of you who prefer the softer side of John Carter will be interested in the new featurette that highlights the relationship of Carter and the Martian princess, Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). If none of the above makes any sense to you, might I suggest you check out some posters, images, trailers, behind-the-scenes footage and set visit interviews. Better yet, just get caught up on everything here. John Carter releases in 3D on March 9th. Hit the jump to see the new clip and featurette.

Check out the new clip and featurette below, along with a new trailer at the end of the White Ape battle that provides some fresh looks at Barsoom. Here’s the synopsis for John Carter:

From Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”–a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
