New 'John Carter' Preview/Extended Scene

Watching this the term 'aggressively non-engaging' occurred to me. Some of the VFX are fun but in a 'volume-off' kinda way. Not a good sign. Sequences play out okay, but there is little connection between the eye-candy and what it represents storywise. That is, this movie seems like a series of vapid sequences that rely on strong visuals, but is populated with characters you can't care about in a story you don't want to know.

There is an element, at 3:32, that drew me in both because of its look and the story implications. But, that's it -- just that one. Otherwise, the longest four and a half minutes I can remember.
