Two New JOHN CARTER Promo Images Revealed!

Hit the jump to check out two new photos for the Andrew Stanton-directed sci-fi epic John Carter, featuring Dominic West as Sab Than and Mark Strong as Matai Shang...



John Carter, the newest movie from Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton is an action adventure story set on Barsoom, the exotic and mysterious planet we know as Mars. Based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs classic novel, John Carter is the story which inspired many of the most imaginative and well known Hollywood movies, past and present.

The movie tells the tale of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly involved in a conflict of epic proportions between 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, John Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.




- MATAI SHANG


"We do not cause the destruction of a world, Captain Carter. We simply manage it. Feed off it, if you like."

Matai Shang (Mark Strong) is the Holy Hekkador (King) of the Therns. Using their advanced technology, the mysterious Therns represent themselves as the messengers of Issus, the Barsoomian Goddess, in order to further their own plans.



- SAB THAN

"Death to Helium!"

Sab Than (Dominic West) is the Jeddak (King) of Zodanga. He is impulsive, arrogant and aggressive; promoting war and conquest as the Zodangan way of life. With his dangerously calculated charm, Sab Than will even try to make a deal with the devil to destroy Helium and rule all of Barsoom.


Along Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins and Willem Dafoe, the rest of the cast includes Mark Strong, Bryan Cranston, James Purefoy, Dominic West, Thomas Haden Church and Ciarán Hinds. John Carter is set to hit theatres on March 9!

Saw the commercials for this yesterday. I just can't get past the fact it looks like an expanded arena scene from Star Wars Episode II.

The source material was good though.

This movie is going to suck. What are they doing cramming the the first three books together. You don't even hear the name Matai Shang till the second book and he doesn't make an actual appearance till the third book. If he's in this movie I can only imagine how much critical info has been left out. FAIL!!!

–IDEA—DOCTOR EVIL PLANNED THE WHOLE TURNING GOOD THING TO GAIN ACCESS AND INTEL FROM HIS FORMER NEMESIS AUSTIN POWERS AND HIS AFFILIATES TO ULTIMATELY DESTROY HIM. HIS FATHER THAT SIDED WITH HIM AT THE END OF THE LAST FILM WAS ACTUALLY A ROBOT, HIS REAL FATHER WAS HELD PRISONER..THE WHOLE “DOUGIE” ACT WAS A ACT TO MAKE EVEN HIS COHORTS BELIEVABLE TO HIS ENEMIES THAT WOULD TRY TO THWART HIS MASTER PLAN. SEEIMG AS HOW MINI ME SWITCHED SIDES DR EVIL CREATES ANOTHER MINI ME. WHEN HIS SCHEMES ARE REVEALED IT’S UP TO AUSTIN AND MINI AUSTIN TO STOP DR EVIL AND HIS MINI ME FROM DESTROYING THE GOOD GUYS AND DOMINATING THE WORLD.—

^^^^ cool idea, but the movie will be coming from Doctor Evil's point of view rather than Austin's. So maybe it'll be a prequel in some sort of way or it'll be nothing related to any of the prior movies. lol
