Get A Beautiful John Carter IMAX Mondo Poster For Free!It seems trendy lately to bitch and be pessimistic about the imminent release of John Carter on March 9th. If I have to see one more article or tweet about how "underwhelmed" someone is over the latest John Carter marketing, I may have to commit myself. What gets me is that people are not only bracing for a train-wreck, but many folks seem to be licking their chops in anticipation of any perceived failure. Sorry I just don't get it, I am proud to espouse my belief in and enthusiasm for this movie.
I have read the first three John Carter novels 3 times each and have read six of the books total. Needless to say I am a huge fan. So, while I could nitpick with the best of them about what I wish were up on that screen, ultimately I'm gonna have to put my faith in Andrew Stanton . . . and since we are talking about the man who brought us Finding Nemo and WALL-E that is not something I am nervous about doing.
I can't wait to visit Barsoom on the big screen and no bad PR will persuade me otherwise. On the other hand, a cool and unique marketing gimmick may just whet my appetite even more for the movie. That's what happened today.
Disney has unveiled an exclusive Mondo poster of the film and it will be handed out to all IMAX audiences at the midnight screenings for John Carter. I don't know about you, but that awesome poster just guaranteed where I will be two Thursdays from now!
So check out the sweet poster below and let me know what you think. Does this mean you will be there opening night? Are you looking forward to this movie or are you one of the detractors? Leave a comment and let us know!
