John Carter 10-Minute Scene Will Still Leave You Confused

Seen all those commercials for John Carter? Still not sure what the heck what it’s about? Well, Disney has released an extended 10-minute scene that will still not answer your questions.

Based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Barsoom series 11-novel series, they tell a tale of a Civil War veteran who finds himself transported to Mars during a time of war.  From the commercials, you mainly see Mars, from the scene below you mainly see him before he’s transported, and somewhere in the middle is a whole bunch of confused movie goers.

Why Disney opted to take this marketing strategy with a film that could launch a series is beyond me, but they have for more money than I, so let them worry about it.

John Carter opens on March 9.
