The long-awaited trailer for John Carter of Mars (now just called John Carter) is finally here. Taylor Kitsch (of X-Men Origins: Wolverine) stars as the title character and Lynn Collins (also of X-Men Origins) stars as Dejah Thoris, the Princess of Helium. The rest of the cast include more familiar faces, such as Willem Dafoe, James Purefoy, Dominic West, Bryan Cranston, and Ciaran Hinds. John Carter is a confederate civil war veteran prospecting in the old west when he is mysteriously transported to Mars. While on Mars, Carter discovers an Avatar-like planet with 12-foot tall "green" inhabitants and the beautiful Princess of Helium, Dejah. John Carter is based on the legendary science fiction anthology, the Barsoom series by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Burroughs is best known for the creation of Tarzan.
