Taylor Kitsch: Japan & the Super Bowl
We wake this morning to new pictures of Taylor Kitsch. And there are never any new pictures of Taylor Kitsch. But Taylor Kitsch’s John Carter opens in 6 weeks. Heavy promotion is ahead although today he was promoting another movie at a press conference in Japan for Battleship (which seems early). During the Super Bowl this weekend though, Disney paid a lot of money to run a John Carter ad with a contest - the teaser for the ad (even commercials have trailers now!?) is below. OK, the way that woman says “You’re John Carter the First?” (at least I think that’s what she’s saying) is making me want to bury myself, still alive, in a shallow ditch.
But... he looks great! Better than he’s looked in a while. Is it enough to make you want to see it? Both John Carter and Battleship? How’s this: I don’t want to see it, but I want all the people who saw Contraband, and Fast Furiousness, and Transformers, and Paranormal Activities etc etc to go over and over and over again...
Is that fair?
