Sci-fi adventure John Carter Of Mars may have just had its release date moved up from June to March 2012, but director Andrew Stanton has revealed that he’s still “only halfway through the movie”.

Based on the series of books by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the film follows the titular Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who lands in an epic alien war.

Willem Dafoe and Lynn Collins play Martians, while the planet Mars is now a place inhabited by warrior tribes and exotic desert dwellers.

“I'm not in post-production,” says Stanton. “I'm in digital principal photography now, which goes on for the rest of 2011, so I'm only halfway through the movie.”

Despite being up against a massive ticking clock, Stanton still took the time to let MTV know what we should expect in terms of the film’s look.

“I didn't try to make it look like anything else,” he reveals. “I really tried to make it its own thing. I tried to make a very historically accurate Martian film if that makes sense, so I'll let you decipher that.”

Think the movie's being rushed by the studio? Or still looking forward to what Stanton comes up with? Drop us your impressions below...
