JOHN CARTER: Director Andrew Stanton Interview Pt.1

JOHN CARTER: Director Andrew Stanton Interview Pt.1

The enthusiasm of director Andrew Stanton for his John Carter movie is catching! In the first part of our exclusive video interview, he discusses his inspiration, his approach to the film, how he envisioned the technology of Mars, and how the adaptation differs from the 100-year-old books.

This is Stanton's first live action movie (or "hybrid" since there are LOTS of cgi characters). Best known for his direction of Finding Nemo and WALL-E he certainly brought that Pixar experience with him for JOHN CARTER. In coming interviews we will discuss that aspect, but for now, enjoy part one...



Hear what Andrew's actors think about him in this little video montage:

  • From Academy Award®--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.

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