‘Disney-do-Avatar’ is the description for this 3D spectacle, an adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ 1911 novel in which a Civil War cavalaryman (Kitsch) is zapped to Mars where he battles 12-foot-tall green-skinned aliens. The industry buzz predicts box office problems, though, for the Mouse House’s £158m+ gamble, which has work to do just to break even.

Starring: Taylor Kitsch, Lynn Collins
