Taylor Kitsch goes to Mars

The first trailer for Walt Disney Pictures’ John Carter is here! Former Friday Night Lights star Taylor Kitsch plays the title role in the sci-fi/fantasy epic. The film marks the first live-action feature by Wall-E director Andrew Stanton.

John Carter (formerly John Carter of Mars) is based on the popular Edgar Rice Burroughs series that centers on a military captain who's transported to the red planet. On Earth, his family believes he's dead but in reality he's embarking on the journey of a lifetime!

Taylor Kitsch goes to Mars

Carter's (Taylor Kitsch) companion and love interest Princess Dejah Thoris is played by the beautiful and talented Lynn Collins. Both actors previously appeared in the 2009 comic book movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine. And the rest of the film's cast is nothing to sneeze at; it includes Willem Dafoe, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Dominic West, James Purefoy, Polly Walker and Bryan Cranston.

Since this is a teaser trailer, don't judge too harshly. If you're not familiar with the character this might look completely insane but it's got a lot to offer. Give it a chance.

John Carter opens on March 9, 2012 in 3D.
