The trailer for a highly anticipated movie is finally out. The upcoming "John Carter' from Walt Disney Pictures has been a topic in development for some time on the AN Forums with stills from the film, movie poster designs and other items. Now there's the trailer to enjoy.

Oscar winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton brings us a sweeping action-adventure epic on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). John Carter is based on the series of novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs and tells the story of a war-weary military captain who is inexplicably transported to Mars and becomes embroiled in a conflict amongst the inhabitants of the planet, whose destiny lies in his hands.

And for a special treat, how about a look at some animation from the 1930s intended to be a production of the same title. Narrated by the great Bob Clampett, you can see it here.

More animation to enjoy is on the way thanks to a film hailing from Spain. "Snowflake the White Gorilla" will be released for the Holiday Season. Directed by Andres G. Schaer, the movie follows the adventures of a white gorilla who is not accepted by the other animals at the Barcelona Zoo because of the color of his fur. He embarks on a journey to find a magic potion that will turn him into an ordinary black gorilla, and meets several friends along the way who help him escape the clutchs of the villain Luc de Sac. The CG animated gorilla is created by Muf Animaton and Filmax. The Forum topic is here and the trailer is below. Although it's in Spanish, you still get a good idea as to what's being communicated for those not familiar with the language.
