In advance of a new trailer that should hit sometime tomorrow, Disney has released a new poster for the upcoming John Carter. As you can see below, the film capitalizes on the film’s Martian setting with a big red tint. The art work recalls, as others have also pointed out, science-fiction paperback covers from the 1970s. Although, not particularly the ones that featured the adventures of the Edgar Rice Burroughs pulp hero being adapted in this film.

Director Andrew Stanton’s John Carter 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 Dafoe. It opens on March 9th.
