As has been said elsewhere, the essential factor missing from John Carter is a credible and charismatic lead actor. I doubt many people outside the US can name anything that Taylor Kitsch has been in. He does a reasonable job in the role, but I think he was miscast.
I'm afraid even with a bigger name actor it still would have been dismissed by most people as just a cheesy Prince of Persia/Attack of the Clones knockoff.

The style and art design of the movie just looked painfully tired and derivative, and there's no trailer you could cut that would have changed that.
