Disney has unveiled a sneak peek at its 30-second spot for John Carter set to air Sunday during the Super Bowl telecast. There’s nothing new in the briefly glimpsed footage — the same half-naked Taylor Kitsch, the same Martian landscape, the same cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” — but the teaser does reveal the ad will contain a code that viewers can enter at NFL.com/JohnCarter for a chance to win tickets to next year’s big game.
In related news, members of D23, the official Disney fan club, will be able to register online Feb. 8 for free tickets to the film’s premiere, held Feb. 22 at Regal Cinema at L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles (there’s a $5 processing fee). Directed by Andrew Stanton, John Carter opens March 9.
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.
