Disney really is pushing John Carter hard now, with several new pics released in the last few week, another trailer arriving this Thursday and now Apple debuting a new poster for the movie. It’s a bit retro to be honest, and wouldn’t have been out of place on a 1970s paperback – but Disney will be hoping that it helps get people excited about their $200 million sci-fi gamble, which hit cinemas next March.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘From Academy Award-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.’
