JCoM Poster

The images for John Carter (of Mars) have been pouring in lately. This poster is a very striking image, but if I didn't know better I would get the impression this was an animated film. Particularly with the placement of the Disney logo and the overall treatment. I like that it feels very pulp with a modern sensibility to it. I'll be curious to read the reactions as this image makes its way around.

Also, several great stills have been released. They are all very consistent with previously released images, no surprises here really. Woola looks almost exactly as described in the books except he looks to only have six legs instead of 8 - that could just be the angle of the shot but I don't think so. I expect him to be animated well considering Stanton's background as an animation director.

New John Carter of Mars image

Entertainment Weekly scored a new image from the JCOM movie. I think it shows off the naturalistic visual style Andrew Stanton is going for, instead of a CG environment. Giving the effects artists real world background plate to match their CG creatures against. This should give the movie added realism.
