Talk about culture shock. Imagine waking up decades into the future on a foreign planet surrounded by hostile green aliens. I’d prefer not to, but that’s how John Carter finds himself. Aside from that, we don’t get much else from the teaser trailer of John Carter. From a cinematic standpoint, however, the picture definitely appears grand in scope — it’s heavy on lore, the shots of what is supposed to be the Mars landscape is inspiring as are the hints of the massive battles that are sure to ensue between Carter, his adoptive aliens and the aforementioned green guys. If you can make out more from this, do tell!
John Carter stars Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Thomas Haden Church, Willem Dafoe, Ciaran Hinds, Dominic West, Daryl Sabara and James Purefoy.
John Carter discovers US and UK theaters on March 9, 2012.
