They May Take ‘John Carter’ to Mars, But They’ll Never Take His Freeeeeedom!


Disney has released the first full-length trailer for their big screen adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “John Carter from Mars,” starring Lynn Collins as Princess Dejah Thoris, Willem Dafoe as Tars Tarkas, Bryan Cranston as Civil War Colonel Powell and Taylor Kitsch as John Carter.

Peep it:

The official synopsis reads:

[John Carter] 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.

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.

The film marks the live-action debut of Oscar-winning Pixar badass Andrew Stanton, writer and director of Wall-E, Finding Nemo, and A Bug’s Life. Stanton is also the writer behind the Toy Story franchise, Monsters Inc. and its upcoming sequel Monsters University.

John Carter will open in 3-D on March 9, 2012.
