John Carterhas released a third and final full trailer, in which Mark Strong makes his presence felt as the villainous Matai Shang.
The trailer gives us a couple of glimpses of Strong, who realises that the arrival of Taylor Kitsch’s eponymous hero has potentially thrown a spanner in the works of the Tharks’ aim to conquer Barsoom.
Elsewhere, there’s a little more exposition explaining just why Carter would embroil himself in this battle in the first place, as well as plenty of footage of Kitsch screaming, and hurling himself into combat.
Check out the new trailer below…
We’re not quite sure about that Avatar-aping final scene, but this one is still shaping up to be an enjoyable sci-fi romp. In the snippets of footage we’ve seen so far, Kitsch does seem a little too identikit action man, but hopefully that will change once he’s given room to flesh his character out a bit.
John Carter opens in the UK on 9 March 2012. Disappointed anew by the recent Star Wars re-release? This could be just the tonic you’re looking for…
