You won't hear a single word of English in the whole thing, but a new international trailer for The Lone Ranger is by far the most effective look at the mega-Western yet.
Disney has rolled out the final theatrical trailer for this summer's The Lone Ranger.
In order to ensure that everybody's paying attention, director Gore Verbinksi, producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer are participating in a Q&A that unfolding right now, so you can watch the quartet discussing this mega-movie via livestreaming video.
The Wild West of the movies is populated by unimaginably grizzled cowboys ready to get down to all manner of derring do, but Disney has revealed two character posters for The Lone Ranger that highlight the feminine side of the frontier.
Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter are showcased on these new posters promoting the July 3rd release of The Lone Ranger.
It may not contain any superheroes per-se, but this summer's would-be buster of blocks The Lone Ranger does feature a masked avenger and his best buddy.
Both the title character and Tonto, as played by Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp, are well represented on two new character posters, complete with a mask for the ranger and the stylized facepaint/dead bird combo favored by his Native American buddy.
Our latest look at this The Lone Ranger comes from all the way across the Pacific Ocean. It's a Japanese trailer, and so includes very little dialogue. It does, however, speak an international language.
In anticipation of some sort of sporting event this Sunday, Disney is offering yet another commercial for a commercial with a glimpse at new footage from this summer's The Lone Ranger.
And maybe because a twenty-second tease of a piece of advertising feels a little insubstantial, the little sneak peek is accompanied by a brand new one sheet featuring Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp as the title character and Tonto, respectively.
Despite shedding many characters and even the director of previous three installments, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides still starred Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow and, as such, grossed over a billion dollars globally. So it was never a question whether we'd see another Disney adventure ostensibly based on the stupendous Disneyland attraction. Rather, the question is when Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will arrive and what it'll be like when it does.
No news on the first count, but on the second, we now know that Jeff Nathanson is writing the screenplay.
It's the end of another year, and that means innumerable lists of the best movies to grace screens in 2012, as well as the continued talk of awards season. With all that laudatory black-slapping for movies released over the last year, isn't it only fair that there's a list commending movies that haven't actually been made?
That would be the Black List, an annual compilation of screenplays that have yet to be produced. The 2012 Black List has been announced, and it's the usual hodgepodge of fare that runs the gamut from clever to exciting, tiresome, and gimmicky, along with a few scripts that are headed to actual production.
Synopsis: Native American spirit warrior Tonto recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid, a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
Prepare to go west, ladies and gentlemen, as Disney has released a new full theatrical trailer for The Lone Ranger.
The trailer contains plenty of Johnny Depp as sidekick Tonto, but it mostly offers Armie Hammer a chance to shine as the title character, setting up his whole situation and giving a him a big heroic moment or two. There's also lots of action, much of which is based on speeding locomotives. Since this a movie from Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski, you can bet your ass that the trailer concludes with a huge, expensive looking bit of train mayhem.
