Alternate Opening Scene For JOHN CARTER

Alternate Opening Scene For JOHN CARTER

Check out the alternate opening for Disney's John Carter. The film, which is as dull as watching repeats of Jake and The Fat Man, actually had a different opening. It was reshot after Pixar executives had voiced their displeasure.

Last year director Andrew Stanton presented a two-hour-and-fifty-minute cut of John Carter to Pixar executives. After the viewing the execs had issues with the opening scene.

The group liked Stanton’s major innovation: turning Carter from a reactive bruiser into a damaged misanthrope who’s haunted by flashbacks to an earlier marriage—a tragic hero who draws trouble down on everyone he meets. But they were confused by the film’s beginning, in which Princess Dejah delivered a lecture about the state of the Barsoomian wars, and they found her arch and stony. Worst of all, the film didn’t feel personal. - New Yorker

Starring Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins and Willem Dafoe, Mark Strong, Bryan Cranston, James Purefoy, Dominic West, Thomas Haden Church and Ciarán Hinds. John Carter will eventually replace Beastmaster on TBS!
