Disney has released three new banners for their sci-fi film John Carter, and adaptation of the Edgar Rice Burroughs classic novel Princess of Mars. Yesterday a decent looking trailer was released for the film that you should check out if you haven't already. Like many of you I really wanted this story to get the best big screen adaptation possible, and I hope this turns out to be it, but I'm not sure yet. I guess I won't know for sure until I see the movie.
After watching that last trailer do you think the movie will be better than what you were expecting?
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 2012.
