John Carter Featurette Brings The New Footage And It’s Good

Having seen some full scenes from John Carter I’m pretty well convinced that it’s going to be a good film, with good storytelling and lots of great cinematic ideas. I do acknowledge, however, that this hasn’t exactly been coming over in the trailers.

Better, though, is this featurette. Have a look, and then we’ll discuss it.

Okay, that voice over is not great – but it could have been much, much worse.

There are some hints of the good stuff here – like the beat where Carter gets the dust thrown in his face, and he then spits it out; or when Dejah Thoris grabs the sword, reveals her prowess and Carter decides he should maybe be hiding behind her.

Honestly, the scenes I’ve seen were witty and imaginative and used editing in some very clever ways. This featurette isn’t getting anywhere near that top quality, just yet, but those are some good beats.

Here’s hoping the rest of the marketing campaign steps it up a notch and rolls out more of the smart and witty stuff.

Thanks to Little Bleeder Jerome for the heads up.
