John Carter ends up on Mars. People on Mars are in a stargate-esque battle for their freedom and lives. He's the "chosen one" or something, and is a total badass on Mars (superman effect?). He fights baddies. End of story (or at least that's what I gather from the trailer and what I've heard).
It's based on an old pulp fiction sci-fi novel (or is it comic book?) by same dude that did Tarzan.
