John Carter Featurette
A new John Carter Featurette has hit the internet that includes some new footage that expands the films premise a little further than the trailers have managed so far.
There are some cool little scenes in this featurette it is just a shame about the voice-over guy, still it could be the one from the 3D Phantom Menace trailer. The story of John Carter is a simple one, it is the characters that make it a great one and here in this featurette we get to see a little bit more about those characters:
The official blurb:
'John Carter is a 2012 American epic science fiction film featuring John Carter, the heroic protagonist of Edgar Rice Burroughs' 11-volume Barsoom series. In the film, former Confederate captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) is transported to Mars ("Barsoom").

Carter takes it upon himself to save Barsoom and its people.
