Walt Disney Studios has released the full, extended Super Bowl commercial for its upcoming film, John Carter. As we previously reported, the ad was Shazam enabled (as should be the one for Marvel’s The Avengers), but the only thing it offered it was the opportunity to view the extended commercial (as seen below) and provide more information on ‘Kashmir’ as performed by Bond. In fact, the link to the extended commercial did not appear to work correctly, at least not on the Apple iPad, which simply went to the tablet version of the official John Carter page.
Viewers were also invited to enter the NFL John Carter sweepstakes which will be awarding tickets and accommodations to next year’s Super Bowl. The code for entering the sweepstakes on the official entry page is MARCH9, which is — of course — the day the film is released nationally.
From Academy Award®winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes John Carter — a sweeping action adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). John Carter is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war?weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
