John Carter poster - AustraliaDisney’s John Carter is almost here, and we’ll be able to bring you a full review next week when our embargo lifts. In the meantime, Disney has sent over a new clip showcasing the extended sequence in which Carter (Taylor Kitsch) battles the white apes. Following that is a sizzle reel, and we mean sizzle, for anticipated sci-fi film.

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.

John Carter is due in cinemas on 8 March 2012 in Australia and 9 March 2012 in the US from Disney.
