John Carter Would Like You To Read A Book

This year’s highest profile literary adaptation will be Andrew Stanton‘s film of Edgar Rice Burroughs‘ novel A Princess of Mars, originally retitled John Carter of Mars, now just John Carter. It’s also a big, family-friendly action adventure that will have wide appeal.

So, the perfect platform for a campaign by The Library of Congress and the Ad Council, encouraging the young ones to pick up a book. They’ve made Princess of Mars available from the Library website, and issued some PSAs.

And there are some little bits of new footage here, if that’s what you’re looking for.

Thanks to Bad Taste for the embed.
