Theatrical Release Date: March 9, 2012 / Rating: PG-13 / Studio: Disney

Director: Andrew Stanton / Writers: Andrew Stanton, Mark Andrews, Michael Chabon (screenplay); Edgar Rice Burroughs (story "A Princess of Mars")

Cast: Taylor Kitsch (John Carter), Bryan Cranston (Powell), Ciarán Hinds (Tardors Mors), Mark Strong (Matai Shang), Lynn Collins (Dejah Thoris), Willem Dafoe (Tars Tarkas), Polly Walker (Sarkoja), Dominic West (Sab Than), James Purefoy (Kantos Kahn), Daryl Sabara (Edgar Rice Burroughs), Thomas Haden Church (Tal Hajus), Samantha Morton (Sola), Jonathan Hyde, Don Stark (Dr. Cox)

Plot: A Civil War captain (Kitsch) is transported to Mars, where he becomes part of an international conflict.

Domestic Box Office Prediction: $80 million

On paper, this live-action debut of Finding Nemo and WALL•E writer/director Andrew Stanton which finally realizes a filming of one of the first iconic sci-fi series sounds fascinating, but the trailer just looks like Prince of Persia 2. However good the movie turns out, this is not likely to go well at the box office, where it has to recoup its remarkably steep $250 million budget along with considerable marketing costs.

Outlook: Undecided

With the giant White Ape behind him, John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) pulls on a chain. Just your typical resident of Barsoom (Mars).
