John Carter - Trailer
Director Andrew StantonYear 2011Genre(s) Kids, Family
Civil War veteran John Carter wakes up in a strange, barren land with no idea of where he is. He soon discovers that he has been transported to the populated Barsoom, which is more commonly known as the planet Mars. He becomes involved in a massive conflict on the planet, with civilisation on Barsoom dying as a result. The beautiful Princess Dejah Thoris tells John that fate has brought him here and that the population and existence of Barsoom depends on him, which John reluctantly accepts.
John's appearance on Barsoom is taken by many to be a sign that something new will occur. John Carter will rediscover his humanity as he leads Barsoom into war.
John Carter is based on the classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs (The creator of Tarzan), called 'A Princess of Mars', which was released in 1917 and which inspired a great number of science fiction movies, including James Cameron's 'Avatar'. John Carter is directed by Andrew Stanton, who has previously directed the award winning films 'Finding Nemo' and 'WALL-E'.
