Not impressed with what you’ve seen from Andrew Stanton’s “John Carter” (formerly “of Mars”) so far? Maybe these two new TV spots will change your mind. Both are action-heavy and features Earth’s fate hanging in the balance. This is a new angle that we haven’t seen before in previous trailers/spots. So, Earth is at stake, too, and not just Mars? Good to know, good to know.

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 planet, including Tars Tarkas (Willem Dafoe) and the captivating Princess Dejah Thoris (Lynn Collins). 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.

Starring (or in some cases, featuring the voices of) 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.

John Carter fights on March 9, 2012.
