John Carter poster - AustraliaWalt Disney Pictures have shared ten minutes from this week’s big release John Carter online. The footage is essentially the first ten minutes of the film, setting up the Earthman’s mysterious circumstances that led him to Barsoom, or Mars. The multiple escape attempts showcase the humour in the film as well.

In our review for the film, we Highly Recommended it, saying it “is one of the first great science fiction epics of the decade, taking the best elements of the past and updating them for modern audiences”. We really encourage readers to go and see it when it opens this week.

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.

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