John Carter of Promising Reviews

The marketing campaign for John Carter has really run the gamut in terms of the level of quality it promises in the film it’s promoting. At first, I thought it looked pretty cool, but then as more trailers were released it began to look more like Star Wars – Episode 2: Attack of the Clones, mostly because of the prominently featured arena scene, and the association wasn’t a good one. But more recently, John Carter has been looking fun again, with a weird alien dog and a whole lot of sci-fi action. I’m definitely interested to see how the final product shapes up, and early reviews have been quite promising, but when it comes to John Carter‘s marketing…well, I think it’s telling when a fan can cut together a better trailer than the editors over at Disney.

John Carter comes out March 9, 2012.
