'John Carter' is one of the more eagerly-awaited movies of 2012, and the first full trailer has geeks, action movie junkies and fans of 'Friday Night Lights' star Taylor Kitsch freaking out. 

Based on the sneak peek, it looks like 'John Carter,' directed by 'WALL-E' helmer Andrew Stanton, has a little bit of everything: giant monsters, epic battle scenes, shirtless hunks from critically-acclaimed TV shows (the aforementioned Kitsch) and a love story.

'John Carter' opens on March 9. Check out the exciting trailer below.
