Anyone here read the book John Carter of Mars?  Yeah, me neither.  But Disney is bringing it to the big screen with the film John Carter, which opens everywhere on March 9, 2012.

Director Andrew Stanton describes the creature in the photo below battling Carter, known as a White Ape as

 “a formidable creature that you kind of hear about throughout the movie, but you never really witness.  [They are] nocturnal, just like moles — they stopped using their eyes, and just had a heightened sense of smell.”

Here’s the official synopsis for John Carter:

From Academy Award(R)-winning filmmaker Andrew Stanton comes “John Carter”–a sweeping action-adventure set on the mysterious and exotic planet of Barsoom (Mars). “John Carter” is based on a classic novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, whose highly imaginative adventures served as inspiration for many filmmakers, both past and present. 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.

The film 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 and opens everywhere on March 9, 2012.
