New Images for John Carter of Mars Starring Taylor Kitsch

Here’s a quick look at some of the new images for the upcoming Disney produced film “John Carter of Mars” starring Taylor Kitsch who played Gambit in X-Men Origins Wolverine.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

From Academy Award(R)-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.

In all honesty this movie looks really awesome and hopefully we dont get a lackluster summer flick (much like Jon Favreau’s stinker “Cowboys & Aliens).
