Super Bowl Spots for 'John Carter' and 'Lorax' Bring Thrilling Adventure in Fantasy World
More Super Bowl spots from other big movies have been made available for movie lovers' viewing pleasure. After "The Avengers" and "Battleship" unveiled their promo videos during the February 5 telecast of the football game, family movies "John Carter" and "The Lorax" have now debuted their own ads.
"John Carter" Super Bowl spot highlights the titular hero as he leads an epic war in Mars a.k.a Barsoom. Compared to the previously released trailer, this new spot offers a longer look at the scenes featuring Carter in a fight against Barsoom's fearsome White Ape and a meeting with warrior princess Dejah Thoris.
To arrive in the U.S. on March 9, "John Carter" follows an American Civil War veteran who enters a nearly collapse planet Barsoom, where he becomes a hero who saves the planet from destruction. In his adventure, he teams up with Tars Tarkas to rescue Dejah Thoris from belligerent four-armed Green Martians. Directed by Oscar winner Andrew Stanton, the movie stars Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Willem Dafoe and Mark Strong.
As for the "Lorax" Super Bowl spot, the colorful kid-friendly footage uncovers a few fresh scenes involving new characters that were not seen in the previous trailer. It shows a group of gold fish which has eyes that could shine like a torchlight, and tiny bears that produce electricity to shock Once-ler who faints by a pool side.
An adaptation of Dr. Seuss' environmentally-conscious children's book, "The Lorax" centers on the journey of a boy named Ted who searches for the one thing that will enable him to win the affection of the girl of his dreams. To find it, he must discover the story of the Lorax, the grumpy yet charming creature who fights to protect his world. Zac Efron, Taylor Swift, Danny DeVito, Ed Helms are lining up in the voice cast for the animation that will hit the U.S. on March 2.
