Walt Disney pictures is moving full steam ahead with its über-promotion for the upcoming sci-fi epic John Carter, releasing a boatload of beautiful HD stills. If you weren't wowed by the pics, clips and trailers you've seen so far, prepare to be moved by this mega-gallery NOW.
This plethora of new images show (among others) our titular hero—Civil War Confederate Army captain John Carter (Taylor Kitsch), who's finding himself a loooong way from home on Mars—as well as the exquisite Martian princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins).
They also feature Ciaran Hinds (The Woman in Black) as Tardos Mors, James Purefoy (Camelot) as Kantos Kahn and Dominic West (The Hour) as Sab Than.
There are also some stills of Carter's BFF, Tars Tarkas, brought to CGI life by actor Willem Dafoe, plus a couple of interesting behind-the-scenes/filming pics to further whet your appetites for John Carter.
Oh, and if you're wondering ''Who the heck's that guy in the first pic? He seems familiar!'' Well it's Edgar Rice Burroughs himself (the guy who wrote all the books, as you already know), played by Spy Kids' Darryl Sabara.
Enjoy the mega-goodness!
John Carter comes out in movie theaters on March 9, 2012, in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D.
