The John Carter Film, an adaptation of the popular Edgar Rice Burroughs novel series, revealed on their Facebook page today the new concept art of a Helium Airship!

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 wildly diverse planet whose main inhabitants are 12-foot tall green barbarians, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) (a giant green warrior creature) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins) (Silverfox in X-Men Origins: Wolverine). 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’ is directed by Academy Award winner Andrew Stanton (‘Wall-E’) and stars Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins, Samantha Morton, Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds, Dominic West, James Purefoy, Daryl Sabara, Polly Walker, Bryan Cranston, Thomas Hayden Church and Willem Defoe. The film is scheduled for theatrical release on March 9th, 2012.
