ComicBookMovie has posted an interview with actress Lynn Collins, who stars opposite Taylor Kitsch in Disney’s big-screen, big-budget adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ pulp character John Carter.
The Mouse House has been trying super-hard to build buzz for the movie starring a character that most people have never heard of. A week or so ago, the studio sweetened the pot, announcing that it would give arty prints to the midnight screening, opening-night iMax attendees. Will it be enough? Credit them for working hard.
Here’s the interview:
And, for good measure, an official synopsis:
“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.”
