'John Carter' full trailer - It's like 'Attack of the Clones' with much better acting

If you insert Yoda into the new trailer of John Carter, you’d think George Lucas was remaking Attack of the Clones into a much better movie. The new trailer has a lot of sand, green aliens, and colossium fighting. Honestly, it looks pretty great so far. 

The film is based on John Carter of Mars, written by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1914, but feels a lot like an elegant mashup of some of the most notable action films of the last decade. John Carter and the desert feel very much like Prince of Persia, the alien craft are reminiscent of Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and much of the alien design and CGI feels a bit like Avatar. Mix in some Braveheart, Goro from Mortal Kombat, and Gladiator for good measure and you have John Carter. Hopefully, Andrew Stanton and Pixar’s expertise in CGI and storytelling will help the film come alive. 

John Carter hits theaters on March 9, 2012.
