John Carter Of Mars
and Tim Burton’s
have been both given official release dates by Disney.
The former, starring Friday Night Light player Taylor Kitsch and directed by Andrew Wall-E Stanton, will be hitting screens on 8 June 2012.
Based on the character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the sci-flick follows Carter, an American civil war vet who wakes up on Mars and finds a race of people living there called the Barsoomians.
Shooting on the actioner wrapped last month. Crewmembers report that Frank Frazetta's "dated" original artwork has been given a modern spin. (Don't screw us over, Stanton.)
Meanwhile, Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie is set to head into cinemas on 9 March 2012.
A stop-motion, black-and-white 3D effort, Burton is expected to direct, and will stretch his original short of the same name into a feature length production. Check out the original below...
