Coincidentally, I recently re-read Edgar Rice Burrough's other "white stranger in a strange land" work, Tarzan (he wrote the John Carter series as well, FYI). His influence is still evident, considering recent films like James Cameron's Avatar. But I believe this is one of those titles fanboys have been anticipating since first announced; so if you're one of them, here ya go. You can drool now:

    This is a visually boring and uninspiring trailer. When I heard Andrew Stanton, director of Finding Nemo and Wall-E was directing John Carter I was interested. But this looks like any typical sci-fi movie. I guess no Pixar magic here.

    What kind of dull version of Mars is this.

    *hums tune "History Repeating"*

    this surely reeks of "Avatar" (and all films like it).

    I could see Prince of Persia, too---a lot in the styling...and swords and other pointy blades. LOL. It's Disney. It'll fare.

    Aside from this Taylor Kitsch kid: James Purefoy, Dominic West, Bryan Cranston, Willem Dafoe, word, say what?

    Thank you, imdb.

    Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium, who is in desperate need of a savior.

    Princess of Helium??? LOL.

    Horrible trailer that tells nothing about the story or premise of the film. Horrible music choice and totally in agreement with Afrostyling!

    Good point. That's exactly what I say about things I don't like-- "Don't feed it, and eventually it will die."

    Get out of my head! I wont be watching this movie. Maybe bootleg. I have decided not to support movies that appropriate another culture and those that do not include a diverse cast.
    People need to understand the power they wield as consumers. Stop funding foolishness.

    Yes, I am drooling. Though they could have changed him from confederate to union.
