Disney has released a new clip, featurette, and provided us with an exclusive TV spot from director Andrew Stanton‘s John Carter.  The film stars Taylor Kitsch as the eponymous hero, a Civil War veteran who’s transported to the surface of the moon [Correction: Mars, not the moon.  I personally blame Disney for removing “of Mars” from the title] and thrown into a new battle between warring tribes.  This new clip and the featurette finally provide what I’ve been looking for in the story: scope.  Even on my computer monitor, the film finally seems bigger with diverse settings and set pieces.  I assume Disney held off on showing this stuff because the effects weren’t completed, because this footage would have been worth the Super Bowl ad-time.

Hit the jump to check out the clip, the featurette, and an exclusive TV spot.  The film also stars Lynn Collins, Mark Strong, Samantha Morton, Thomas Haden Church, and Willem DafoeJohn Carter opens in 3D on March 9th.

john-carter-posterHere’s the official synopsis for John Carter:

From Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”–a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands.
