Watch: Japanese Trailer for 'John Carter' Has Plenty of New Footage
The second trailer for John Carter released a little while back finally gave us a taste of the big action we can expect from the western/sci-fi hybrid based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' books. Taylor Kitsch stars as the titular character, a Civil War captain who gets transported to Mars, where he meets Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins) and other alien races living on the thriving red planet, and a new Japanese trailer has emerged which still has some great action hits, but also gives us a better idea of the story with new footage we haven't seen. The more I see from Andrew Stanton's first live-action venture, the more interested I am. Watch!
John Carter (of Mars) is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic sci-fi adventures, telling 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 (Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Collins). Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands. John Carter is directed by Pixar alum Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) from a screenplay by Mark Andrews, Michael Chabon & Stanton. Disney is bringing John Carter to theaters in 3D eveywhere starting March 9th, 2012 this spring.
