Not content with giving the world our first look at PROMETHEUS yesterday (check it HERE if you haven't already), the latest edition of the US's Entertainment Weekly have also scored a brand new image from Disney's upcoming sci-fi event JOHN CARTER, and compared with the rather uninspiring pics we've been treated to so far this one's a doozy! Let's have a look see...
That bad boy right there is a White Ape, the creatures that feature heavily in Edgar Rice Burrough's original novel. The dude acting against greenscreen is star Taylor Kistch.
Cool as it is, anyone else getting a Geonosis Arena vibe?
If you're not familiar with JOHN CARTER yet, here's the official synopsis to bring you up to speed:
"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."
JOHN CARTER arrives in cinemas March 9th 2012
