The basic synopsis is that John Carter, a man living in the 1800s gets magically transported to Mars, or Basoon. The movie chronicles his journey through this land that is inhabited by alien creatures as well as humans.
"Considered by many to be the first space hero, John Carter was introduced to the world in American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs’ story “Under the Moons of Mars,” which was published serially in All-Story magazine before being renamed and published as the novel “A Princess of Mars” in 1917. Burroughs would go on to
write 10 more books in what came to be known as the “Barsoom” series—Barsoom being Burroughs’ name for the planet Mars. Since the book’s publication, some of the 20th century’s greatest minds in art, literature and science have credited it with inspiring and motivating their work."
