Today sees the release of the first official teaser poster for John Carter, courtesy of Apple. I’d rather Disney have stuck with the original title John Carter of Mars, but in preparation for the impending marketing campaign the studio cut the title down to simply John Carter.
You can view the full tribal-looking poster below:
John Carter is directed by Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) and follows Civil War veteran John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) who is transported to Mars where the inhabitants have turned to fighting one another to survive as the oceans evaporated, and the atmosphere thinned. Lynn Collins (X-Men Origins: Wolverine), Thomas Haden Church (Spider-Man 3), Mark Strong, Dominic West, James Purefoy and Samantha Morton also star, along with Willem Dafoe who plays a 10-foot alien with four arms called Tars Tarkas.
The first trailer will likely be released soon, possibly with Cars 2 on June 24th.
