Published: February 21, 2012 - 7:24pm
Starring Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins and Mark Strong, Walt Disney Pictures's upcoming adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs's classic mythology is directed by Academy Award winner Andrew Stanton and scheduled to hit theaters this March.
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.
Debuting at the LA Times Hero Complex Blog, the "commemorative Mondo poster [was created by] the very talented J.C. Richard. The poster will be given out free to those devoted fans who are so eager to visit Mars that they attend IMAX midnight screenings in the first hours of March 9. The offer is good only while supplies last, and you should check the soon-to-be-posted list on IMAX’s website to see if your nearest IMAX theater is among the select sites participating in the giveaway."
John Carter is directed by Academy Award winner Andrew Stanton (Wall-E) and stars Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy, Daryl Sabara, Polly Walker, Bryan Cranston, Thomas Hayden Church and Willem Defoe. The film is scheduled for theatrical release on March 9th, 2012.
