Seems like everyday we get a new trailer for all the exciting upcoming projects that we can expect to see in the near future. Today, we bring you the trailer for Disney’s multi-million dollar epic, an adaptation of John Carter of Mars simply titled John Carter. Admittedly, it looks pretty awesome.

Set to Arcade Fire’s My Body Is a Cage, the trailer basically showcases a lot of sweeping landscape shots mixed with some very nicely done special effects. Some may criticise it as very Prince of Persia like and it does kind of give off that vibe. Trust me though, the material is fascinating and oddly unique and I really hope that the filmmakers manage to pull it off successfully.

It is directed by Pixar filmmaker Andrew Stanton who previously handled two of the best Pixar works in my opinion, Finding Nemo and WALL-EJohn Carter is his first foray into live action filmmaking. He is blessed with quite a cast which includes relatively unknown actors Taylor Kitsch (in the lead role) and Lynn Collins, yet in support is Willem Dafoe, Mark Strong, Thomas Haden Church, Samantha Morton, Dominic West and James Purefoy.

John Carter will debut in theatres in March 2012. Watch the trailer below.
