With John Carter set to open in theaters Friday, Disney has released the first 10 minutes of the movie in hopes of convincing folks who are still on the fence.

The first 10 minutes highlight John Carter's Earthly adventures, with Taylor Kitsch the rebellious warrior and Bryan Cranston as a colonel looking to enlist his services in fighting the Apaches in Arizona. Their contentious encounters culminate in the Apaches chasing the duo across the desert.
 
As a general rule, most filmmakers will tell you that the first 10 minutes of a movie are important in setting the tone, conflict, characters, etc. We'll let you be the judge on whether you think this clip does the job.
 
John Carter opens March 9 and select IMAX theaters will be giving away a free Mondo poster at midnight screenings. You can find out if your IMAX theater is participating here.

    Considering that most of the viewers who saw this movie were in the under 30 yr group, I don't think any of them knew the saem person who created Tarzan also created John Carter. Since I have read several stories based on the original 'Princess of Mars', I thought this a good rendering of an adaptation to this story! If you really wanted to get more insight, you should really read the story or you could NOT listen to the critics and go see this movie. I thought it worth the price of admission!
