Video: Disney's John Carter Trailer

Disney is trying out another action adventure film, by adapting the Edgar Rice Burroughs, John Carter of Mars to the big screen. I'll be the first to admit I know nothing about this character or the storylines surrounding him. My only exposure to the character was a single issue of the Marvel Comic from the 70's that I picked up at the comic book exchange that the Bladensburg Public Library in Prince Georges County, MD.

That little library in Maryland holds so many of the books and comic books that laid the foundation for some of my many interests that I have today and my love of reading & music. Makes me want to take my kids to the library this weekend... BUT I DIGRESS.. JOHN CARTER, back on topic.

Yeah I don't know much about the character, I know so much more about Burroughs' other character Tarzan. Since this is an adventure with a science fiction flavor I'll at least keep my eye on it. The fact that it will be in 3D isn't a selling point for me. It might be lumped along with Prince of Persia: Sands of Time... something I just wait to see on DVD or Cable. The trailer looks good enough, I still can't really tell what the story is though.
