Here comes the next wave of marketing for Disney’s John Carter, adapted from the Edgar Rice Burroughs novel A Princess of Mars and directed by Pixar’s Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) with Taylor Kitsch in the title role. Kitsch plays a captain in the civil war Confederacy who is transported to Mars (called Barsoom by the planet’s inhabitants) where he is embroiled in a conflict between warring societies.

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.
