Looks like the marketing for Disney’s “John Carter” is in full force as we showed you new screens from the film last week, and today Disney has released an official poster for the sci-fi film based on the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Although the poster doesn’t reveal much, we do get a good look at Taylor Kitsch’s character and it is rather stylish mimicking the “of Mars” part that was dropped from the title. It’s definitely a step up from the horrible teaser poster that’s for sure.
The film stars Taylor Kitsch, Willem Dafoe Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy, Daryl Sabara, Polly Walker, Bryan Cranston, and Thomas Hayden Church.
Here’s the official synopsis for “John Carter”:
From Academy Award(R)-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.
