The first theorem of movie trailers states “if you take tons of action, and mix it with a rendition of Led Zeppelin’s ‘Kashmir’, you are guaranteed instant success”. I hope to Crom this remains true.

Andrew Stanton’s (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) remake of the turn of the century novella by Edgar Rice Burroughs seems like it’s going to be one hell of a ride when it is released in March on the 9th. Taylor Kitsch seems like he’s going to make the perfect hero for the film.

Here’s your synopsis:

Transplanted to Mars, a Civil War vet discovers a lush planet inhabited by 12-foot tall barbarians. Finding himself a prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter a princess who is in desperate need of a savior.

I just can’t wait to hear all of the young people claim how much this series is ‘ripping off’ stuff that is much newer than it was considering the first in the Barsoom series came out in 1912…which is coincidentally a friggin’ CENTURY ago!
