John Carter Trailer Debuts

Disney heads to Mars for the sci-fi adventure film John Carter based on the classic novel A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The film stars Taylor Kitsch and Lynn Collins, and in the trailer we see a glimpse of the action they undertake in this much-anticipated 2012 release.

The story: 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.
