Walt Disney Pictures have just released the second trailer for the upcoming blockbuster John Carter, starring Taylor Kitsch of Wolverine fame (he played fan favourite Gambit) as the titular hero.
The movie is 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). What are the bets Disney hopes the movie adaptation is a roaring success, in order to milk a few movies out of the series?
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.I’ve got to admit, this new trailer looks pretty awesome! I wasn’t exactly blown away by the first effort, but this one looks a lot more like it.
John Carter is due for release on the 8th March 2012 in Australia, and the 9th March in the UK and the US.
