John Carter teaser released

DISNEY‘S take on John Carter has been given a shiny new teaser trailer – and it’s definitely intriguing.

Tagged as a ‘sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious planet of Barsoom aka Mars, John Carter is based on the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs novel.

It tells the story of former military captain John Carter – played by Taylor Kitsch – who is transported to Mars.

Once there, he becomes involved in a conflict between the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). Brit star Mark Strong is also among the cast.

With the world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his own humanity when he realises Barsoom’s future, and the people who live there, rests with him.

Directed by Pixar‘s Andrew Stanton, in his first attempt at live action cinema, it certainly looks promising.

Take a look at the trailer below.

John Carter is due in UK cinemas on March 9, 2012.
