First Teaser Poster for Disney's 'John Carter' is Dark But Not Thrilling
Up until this point the film has been known as John Carter of Mars, but the new live-action film from Disney and director Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, WALL-E) is now simply titled John Carter (which sound less cool). Now we've got the first teaser poster for the film which tells the story of John Carter (Taylor Kitsch from X-Men Origins: Wolverine), a Civil War veteran who finds himself mysteriously transported to Mars, where he becomes involved with the planet's warring people. The poster isn't exactly amazing, but the trailer which will likely be out sometime very soon, should deliver. See the poster below!

John Carter is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' sci-fi novels, 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 (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 Thoris (Lynn Collins). Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands. Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy, Daryl Sabara, Polly Walker, Bryan Cranston and Thomas Hayden Church also star in the film, which hits theaters on March 9th, 2012.
