An introductory featurette for the John Carter [Video]

When it comes to science fiction and fantasy there are what is considered to be a few ‘foundational’ stories and authors and one of those authors would have to be Edgar Rice Burroughs and his world of Mars and the character of John Carter.

The character of John Carter is that of a war weary soldier form the American Civil war who suddenly finds himself transported to Mars and embroiled in a war between its inhabitants.

When the word came that they were finally going to be making a movie out of the books by Burroughs there was a lot of gnashing of teeth and proclamations that is would be a failure. Now whether that turns out to be true or not still remains to be seen but Disney has just released a featurette trailer of the movie to help build up the hype for it, and we have it here for your view pleasure.

Be sure to let us know in the comments what you think – success or box off fail?
