Based on the classic novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs, John Carter tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars (A.K.A. Barsoom) where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (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. 

John Carter will be transported into theaters on March 9th.
