Official Trailer: John Carter

Disney has released its first official trailer for the highly anticipated John Carter.

Based on the novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs and directed by Andrew Stanton, John Carter takes place on the foreign planet of Barsoom (Mars).  The film tells a story that sees its title character, a war-weary former military captain, transported to the foreign planet and thrust into a conflict of epic proportions with the inhabitants of the land.  Carter must fight for his very survival, and with the planet on the brink of collapse, he rediscovers his humanity as he realizes that the future of everything around him rests within his hands.

John Carter is a Walt Disney Pictures release starring Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Dominic West, with Thomas Haden Church and Willem Dafoe.  It is directed by Academy Award winner Andrew Stanton and hits theaters on March 9, 2012.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
