another VSF trailer

Yet another Victorian Science Fiction movie will be coming out in the near future.  Scott sent me a link to the following trailer for John Carter (2012).  I have never read the John Carter series by Edgar Rice Burroughs (the creater of jungle hero Tarzan, by the way), but Scott assures me "It is practically the invention of most modern VSF"

The pros:
The cons:
  • Can anyone get even an inkling of an idea of what this movie is about based on the trailer alone?  Because I can't.  It looks like it's a bad adventure movie trying to hide the fact that it's a bad adventure movie.
I will have to wait for an extended trailer before settling on seeing it or not, I fear.
