The trickle of new John Carter promotional materials being released by Disney over the past week culminated with the recent appearance of title star Taylor Kitsch on Good Morning America to discuss the movie and introduce the new trailer, which was later released online in its entirety. But, Disney is not stopping at a new trailer, releasing three epic new banner posters featuring some of the movie's otherworldly characters, creatures and locales.
John Carter was written (with Michael Chabon) and directed by two-time Academy Award-winner Andrew Stanton (Wall-E). It is based on the first novel in Edgar Rice Burroughs' 11-volume Barsoom (Mars) series about a Civil War veteran who gains super powers after being mysteriously transported to Mars. Here's the synopsis of the movie:
John Carter tells the story 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 (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.
