Watch a 10 Minute Scene from <i>John Carter</i>

Disney released today an exclusive 10-minute scene from the forthcoming science fiction film John Carter through their YouTube page.

The film, based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ A Princess of Mars, is about a former Confederate captain (Taylor Kitsch) who is mysteriously transported to Mars. There he finds himself in the midst of a war to control the planet.

While the majority of John Carter’s action takes place on Mars, the sneak preview shows Carter in a good old fashioned shootout in Arizona in 1868. From the looks of it, the 10 minutes take place near the beginning of the film and offer up an explanation to the lead character’s nephew.

Disney is set to release the adaptation this Friday, but you can watch the preview below.
