With Disney’s John Carter leaving Netflix yesterday, the movie has now been added to Disney+ in the United States. The movie has already been available in other countries. It was released in 2012 and was one of the most expensive films to ever be made, costing $350 million, however due to the film’s poor box office performance, Disney ended up canceling its plans for a trilogy.
When Civil War veteran John Carter (Taylor Kitsch) mysteriously awakes on the surface of Mars — also called Barsoom — he little expects the adventure that awaits him. Carter reluctantly becomes embroiled in an epic conflict among the red planet’s inhabitants, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). As Barsoom is poised on the brink of collapse, war-weary Carter rediscovers his humanity when he realizes that everyone’s fate is in his hands.
Check out the trailer below:
