Epic ‘John Carter’ Teaser Touches Down on Exotic World of Adventure [Video]

Disney has released the much anticipated first teaser trailer for John Carter, based on the classic pulp novel A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Directed by Andrew Stanton, an Academy Award winner for his work on Finding Nemo and Wall-E, the live-action film stars Taylor Kitsch (a.k.a. Gambit from X-Men Origins: Wolverine) as a man who finds himself thrust in the middle of a Martian revolution. What the teaser lacks in explicit story setup it makes up for in truly arresting images — contrasted compellingly with a haunting cover of Arcade Fire’s “My Body is a Cage” performed by Peter Gabriel — that suggest a classic science fiction adventure on an epic scale. You can check it out after the jump.

From Academy Award®–winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”-a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor 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.
