We’re only a few weeks away now from the release of Disney’s John Carter, an epic blockbuster that looks to be pretty grand in scale, and the ad campaign has been gearing up over the last few weeks and months nicely.
To add to all we’ve seen so far, we now have a brilliant new Mondo poster for the film designed for its IMAX release, and those attending its midnight screenings at participating IMAX theatres over in the US will be lucky enough to get this new poster for free (while supplies last).
Taylor Kitsch takes the lead as the eponymous John Carter under Oscar winner Andrew Stanton’s direction, with a supporting cast that includes Lynn Collins as the female lead, Mark Strong, Willem Dafoe, Bryan Cranston, Dominic West, Samantha Morton, Ciarán Hinds, and James Purefoy.
“Synopsis: 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.”
Designed by J.C. Richard, this new poster sees John Carter at the bottom looking pretty damn small in comparison to the huge scale of the planet he finds himself on, with Disney’s adaptation coming from the original series by Edgar Rice Burroughs that was first published a century ago this year.
John Carter will be with us in 2D, 3D, and in 3D at the IMAX on 9th March, so we’re getting close to what I’m hoping will be an awesome ride. (If you’re in the UK and want to see this at the IMAX, tickets are currently on sale at the BFI IMAX, with the very first screening on Friday morning already sold out in advance! As usual with this great new poster, you can click to enlarge.
