In a little over a month Disney Pixar will release the long awaited epic John Carter, based on the Barsoom novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs. More than two years in the making, Disney has a lot riding on this film. The film had been in development since at least 2004 (actually it has been in some form of development since 1931 when the author was approached about a film version) and the reported budget is somewhere north of $250 million.
Today we can show you the new poster touting the IMAX release of the film. It features Willem Dafoe's Tars Tarkas, who also features prominently in the teaser that the Disney Channel is running. Thanks to Comingsoon we can share it with you below.
We've also got a compilation of TV spots from Yahoo:
(Personally, I fall a little more in love with Taylor Kitsch every time I hear him say "Yes ma'am".)
John Carter stars Kitsch, Dafoe, Lynn Collins, Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds, Samantha Morton, Thomas Haden Church, Polly Walker, James Purfoy, Dominic West and Daryl Sabara. It opens everywhere on March 9. I'm in…are you?
(Bit of Trivia: Ciaran Hinds, Polly Walker and James Purefoy all appeared together in HBO's Rome.)
