John Carter of Mars' Release Date Moves Up To March 9th 2012

While Disney is slowly getting a successful return from Tron Legacy their next big science fiction film John Carter of Mars could be the studio's most ambitious film in recent memory. The adaption of the Edgar Rice Burroughs novels is getting being moved up to a release date of March 9th 2012. It will go up against Ridley Scott's Prometheus which was announced last week.

Civil War vet John Carter is transplanted to Mars, where he discovers a lush, wildly diverse planet whose main inhabitants are 12-foot tall green barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium, who is in desperate need of a savior.

Taylor Kitsch (Wolverine, Battleship) plays John Carter, Lily Collins (Wolverine) is Dejah Thoris and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man) as Martian inhabitant Tars Tarkas. The rest of the impressive cast includes Thomas Haden Church (Sideways, Spider-Man 3), Polly Walker (Clash of The Titans, Patriot Games), Samantha Morton (Minority Report, Control), Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes, Robin Hood, Green Lantern), Ciaran Hinds (Munich, There Will Be Blood), Dominic West (300, The Wire), James Purefoy (Resident Evil, Rome) and Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Drive).
