What's that? You're craving more JOHN CARTER promos despite the umpteen trailers and posters Disney have bombarded us with already? Well you've come to the right place!

Here for you is the newly released Japanese trailer, which sheds light on a little more of the film's pre-Mars (sorry Barsoom) back story. In all seriousness it's quite different from the stuff we've seen before, so it's well worth a watch... once director Andrew Stanton stops banging on about how his previous films are so great that is. Check it out below and let us know what you think...

Official synopsis:

"From Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes "John Carter"--a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). "John Carter" is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. The film tells the story of war-weary, former military captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who is inexplicably transported to Mars where he becomes reluctantly embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions amongst the inhabitants of the planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). In a world on the brink of collapse, Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that the survival of Barsoom and its people rests in his hands."

JOHN CARTER opens March 9th 2012.
