John Carter gets a new poster

A new poster has arrived for Disney’s upcoming sci-fi flick John Carter , and we must say, we rather like it.

Taking its cues from the sort of cover art you might find on a pulp science-fiction novel, the new poster features a shirt-free Taylor Kitsch striding towards the camera like a man on a mission. Which of course, he is.

We still think it’s a shame the studio went for John Carter rather than John Carter Of Mars , but the new tag line (“Lost In Our World, Found In Another”) has a certain ring to it.

John Carter sees Taylor Kitsch’s eponymous military man suddenly transported to Mars, where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in the conflict between two factions of the local population. The film arrives in UK cinemas on 9 March 2012.
