While at the movies Sunday afternoon, I saw the poster for John Carter, the new action-adventure movie by Walt Disney Pictures that is hitting theaters on March 9, 2012.
Now, I haven’t heard anything about this movie yet, but I knew it was being released next year. This was the first glimpse I’ve seen and I immediately thought “sci-fi” – in case you didn’t know, I am all about the sci-fi!
You can learn all about the movie on JohnCarterArrives.com, but here is a bit of info:
“John Carter” is based on the classic novel, A Princess of Mars, by Edgar Rice Burroughs. 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.
Sounds pretty good, right? I’m so excited for it to come to theaters in March!
