‘The Princess of Mars’, the movie will follow Civil War vet John Carter who is transplanted to Mars and follows him as he becomes involved in the conflict between the inhabitants of the planet and finds himself in the precarious position to save Barsoom and its people.

Civil War vet John Carter is transplanted to Mars, where he discovers a lush, wildly diverse planet whose main inhabitants are 12-foot tall green barbarians. 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.

The movie stars Taylor Kitsch (Remy Lebeau from the movie ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ and as Tim Riggins in ‘Friday Night Lights’) in the lead role as John Carter. He is joined by other recognizable superhero film alums such as Willem Dafoe (Green Goblin – ‘Spiderman’), Thomas Hayden Church (Sandman – Spiderman 3’), Lynn Collins (Sliver fox ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ and Dawn Green ‘True Blood’) and Mark Strong (Sinestro – ‘Green Lantern’).

Fans of the Barsoom series have waited over 80 years for a film version of the books to be made ever since Bob Clampett (of Looney Tunes fame) in 1931 approached Burroughs to make an animated version of ‘The Princess of Mars’. Many attempts have been made to achieve this dream, but it wasn’t until 2007, when Disney gained the film rights, that it began to look like this dream would come to fruition.

The film is being distributed by Walt Disney Pictures and will be released in the United States on March 9, 2012.[1][8][9] Filming began in November 2009 and principal photography spanned from January 2010 to July 2010.[10][11]The film also marks the first time Andrew Stanton will work on a live-action film, following his work on the Pixar animated films
