John Carter's IMAX Poster Flexes Its $250 Million Muscles

Thompson on Hollywood By Sophia Savage | Thompson on Hollywood December 15, 2011 at 10:13AM

As Disney tries to turn $250+ million franchise hopeful "John Carter" into an Event Movie before it opens on March 9, check out this IMAX poster. "John Carter" may look super on huge IMAX theaters, but the film was shot in 2-D (and will be turned into 3-D), and did not use IMAX cameras. Taylor Kitsch stars, with Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy, Daryl Sabara, Polly Walker, Bryan Cranston, Thomas Hayden Church, and Willem Dafoe in tow. (Here we asked if director Andrew Stanton's John Carter is the Next Avatar?)
