Disney has released the official new full trailer for their upcoming sci-fi epic John Carter, which is based on the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs novel. I loved these books and I hope that this Andrew Stanton directed film does it justice. I really want this movie to be good. I will say this is the best trailer I've seen so far, and I'll admit, it actually ended up getting me a little excited to see the movie.
The film has a solid cast of actors that includes Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy, Daryl Sabara, Polly Walker, Bryan Cranston, Thomas Hayden Church, and Willem Dafoe.
From Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”–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.
The movie is set to be released on March 9th. Check out the new trailer below and let us know if you're excited about seeing it!
