I loved the John Carter books as a teenager. Once I had been given the first book (A Princess of Mars) I quickly found and purchased the rest of them. It still remains my favorite science fiction series of all time, and I think it's Edgar Rice Burroughs best work, not Tarzan.
I was thrilled to hear Disney was making a feature film version of "A Princess of Mars", and even more thrilled when I found that the director of WALL-E and Finding Nemo, Andrew Stanton, was behind it.
Much of my enthusiasm vanished when I saw Disney's marketing campaign.
Wow, the trailers released by Disney suck. Who are they marketing this film too?
I don't know if it's enough, but a group of fans have organized a campaign to save the film, and they've even created a trailer. This fan-made trailer is what Disney should have released.
Watch it. Share it. See the movie. See it twice.
