John Carter is the kind of movie that every film geek is already looking forward to, but that's flying under the radar of most of the movie going public. That's not too surprising, really, considering Andrew Stanton's (Wall-E) first live-action film is an adaptation of a series of sci-fi stories that were first written nearly 100 years ago. Hopefully that will soon change, however, thanks to the first trailer for John Carter.
Straight from Disney's official UK YouTube channel (which still refers to the movie by its earlier, and better title, John Carter of Mars):
"John Carter is a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). John Carter is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands."
