This looks promising. You may remember Taylor Kitsch from playing Gambit in Wolverine, or you may know him from Friday Night Lights. He plays the hero in the upcoming Disney movie John Carter, based on “A Princess of Mars” by Edgar Rice Burroughs (the creator of Tarzan), the first novel in the 11-book Barsoom series, which chronicles the adventures of the American Civil War hero Carter as he gets transported to Mars (Barsoom to its inhabitants).
Alongside Taylor Kitsch, the movie also has a fantastic cast which includes Mark Strong, Dominic West, Willem Dafoe, James Purefoy, Ciaran Hinds and Samantha Morton. The trailer looks quite good, with elements of Avatar and Prince of Persia thrown in – I’m not currently falling ovber myself for this one, but am willing to give it the benfit of the doubt.
John Carter is due for relaese on the 8th March 2012 in Australia, and the 9th March in the US and UK.
