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.
