Disney’s <i>John Carter</i> Gets Epic in Pulse-Pounding Super Bowl Ad

Disney’s John Carter trailer might not been the most revelatory of the bunch during last night’s Super Bowl, due to TV spots already being played for a few weeks, plenty of stills being linked around and the teaser for the trailer hitting a week ago, but it still presented a fun-looking sci-fi adventure with some of the better-looking CGI aliens around.

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.

The film hits theaters on March 9.
