FILM: John Carter Trailer (News)

Disney has been looking for their next big live-action film franchise to follow in the footsteps of their Pirates juggernaut, and have already released the likes of PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME and TRON: LEGACY in 2010. Now they are stepping back into the fantasy realm with one of the biggest stories in terms of scale, JOHN CARTER.

Directed by Andrew Stanton (WALL-E) and based off the epic novel written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, JOHN CARTER stars Taylor Kitsch (X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE) as the title character, Lynn Collins (X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE) in the equably timeless role of Princess Dejah Thoris, along with the likes of Mark Strong (GREEN LANTERN) and Willem Dafoe (FANTASTIC MR. FOX) also amongst the cast.

The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter, 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 and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris. 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.

JOHN CARTER wanders into theaters on March 9, 2012.
