A green band trailer for this summer's A Million Ways to Die in the West still shows a bunch of those ways to die on the frontier.
But it does so without digital blood splattering all over the place. And it tones down the innuendo a bit.
The red band trailer for A Million Ways to Die in the West doesn't just offer up the first look at actual footage from Seth MacFarlane's upcoming comedy, it also shows off quite a few of those ways to die on the frontier.
If you like puns, then you're going to love seven out of eight posters for A Million Ways to Die in the West, the new live action comedy from Seth MacFarlane.
The second still from A Million Ways to Die in the West finds Charlize Theron making like she's in a John Woo movie, wielding duel pistols with aplomb.
Like a father turning the car around and canceling the road trip to Disneyland to spite the bickering children in the backseat, Quentin Tarantino is putting his next western, The Hateful Eight, on ice indefinitely.
He'll publish the script, but he won't be making the movie anytime soon.
Here's a rumor to take out for a ride:
Quentin Tarantino is writing roles in his next film, a western about which we know next to nothing, for two players in Django Unchained.
You don't see many westerns getting made these days, let alone comedy westerns. For his second live-action directorial feature, though, Seth MacFarlane is heading to the wild frontier.
As you can see in the first image from A Million Ways to Die in the West, he's brought some formidable acting company in Charlize Theron, Neil Patrick Harris, and Amanda Seyfried.
Actor Ricky Schroder has been entertaining people with his work on television and in the movies for most of his life!
Schroder first gained attention at the age of nine for his role opposite Oscar winner Jon Voight in the Franco Zeffirelli film The Champ, which earned the young actor a Golden Globe for Best New Male Star of the Year in a Motion Picture. But it was his role as Ricky Stratton on the popular ‘80s series Silver Spoons that made him a star and a TV icon. Unlike many child actors, Schroder began to transition into an adult career by appearing on the Western mini-series Lonesome Dove, and its sequel, Return to Lonesome Dove. But it was his role as Danny Sorenson for three seasons on NYPD Blue that cemented his successful career as an adult actor. Schroder would later go on to appear on the beloved Fox series 24, where he played the role of CTU agent Mike Doyle. The actor is also a filmmaker and has directed such films as Black Cloud, and Hellhounds. Now, Schroder goes behind the camera again with a new film that he has also written and produced with his wife Andrea Schroder called Our Wild Hearts, which will be released on VOD and DVD beginning July 9th.
Our Wild Hearts is about a wealthy teenage girl from Malibu (Cambrie Schroder), who falls in love with a beautiful wild mustang in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, as well as the father (Ricky Schroder) who she has never known. The film is truly a family affair, and in addition to collaborating with his wife, the movie features all of Schroder’s children in acting roles including Cambrie, Holden, and Luke Schroder.
I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Ricky Schroder about his work on Our Wild Hearts, as well as his impressive career. The talented actor and filmmaker discussed his new film, co-writing it with his wife, directing his kids, discouraging them to be child actors like he was, the relationships between the characters in the movie, acting vs. filmmaking, his passion for Western culture, and if he would consider reprising his role as Mike Doyle for the upcoming 24 revival series, 24: Live Another Day.
British actress Ruth Wilson is about to make her big budget American film debut with The Lone Ranger, but TV audiences know he best has the devious Alice Morgan on Luther.
The two-time Olivier Award winner first gained the attention of British audiences for her title role in the mini-series Jane Eyre, for which she earned a Golden Globe-nomination. She has appeared on the British stage in countless plays including A Street Car Named Desire, and Anna Christie, for which she won her two Olivier Awards. She was also featured in the AMC TV mini-series The Prisoner, as well as the 2012 film Anna Karenina with Keira Knightley. But is her role on Luther opposite actor Idris Elba that has gained her the attention of Hollywood and fans around the world. The popular detective series is currently in its third season in the UK, and will begin airing on BBC America in the fall. There have been several rumors that the new season will lead up to a feature film based on the show, as well as a possible spin-off series for Wilson centered on her character. But before that, you can see the talented actress playing Armie Hammer’s love interest in the new Western The Lone Ranger, which opens in theaters on July 3rd, and also stars Johnny Depp.
The new film, which is based on the classic Western character, centers on Native American warrior Tonto’s (Depp) recounting of the untold tale of how John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, was transformed into the legendary hero of justice called The Lone Ranger. The two unlikely heroes must now learn to work together in order to fight against greed and corruption in the Wild West. Wilson plays Rebecca Reid, the wife of Dan Reid (James Badge Dale) and sister-in-law of John Reid, who must care for her only son in the wake of her husband and brother-in-law’s apparent deaths. In addition to Wilson, Depp, Hammer, and Dale, the movie features an excellent cast that includes William Fichtner (The Dark Knight), Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins), Barry Pepper (True Grit), and Helena Bonham Carter (Les Miserables). The Lone Ranger was produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Gore Verbinski, the team responsible for the first Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy.
I recently had the pleasure of traveling to Santa Fe, New Mexico to sit down exclusively with Ruth Wilson and talk about her work on The Lone Ranger, as well as Series 3 of Luther. The acclaimed actress discussed her new movie, her knowledge of the title character before being cast in the film, Westerns, the project’s over abundance of British actors, working on her first big budget American movie, collaborating with director Gore Verbinski, her reaction to seeing Johnny Depp in his Tonto make-up for the first time, and doing her own stunts, as well as Series 3 of Luther, her character’s role in the new season, acting with Idris Elba, and the status of the proposed Luther film and Alice Morgan spin-off series.
For almost 30 years 3-time Oscar-nominated actor Johnny Depp has been entertaining people around the world with his unorthodox approach to playing interesting and offbeat characters.
He began his career with a small but pivotal role in the horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street, and later in director Oliver Stone’s Vietnam masterpiece Platoon, before becoming a teen idol on the popular ‘80s TV series 21 Jump Street. Rather then capitalizing on his fame, Depp focused on playing challenging characters on the big screen in a string of acclaimed films including Edward Scissorhands, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Ed Wood, Dead Man, Donnie Brasco, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Sleepy Hallow, Chocolat, and Before Night Falls. But it was his unusual turn as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl that earned him his first Academy Award-nomination for Best Actor and made him one of the most popular movie stars on the planet.
Since then he has earned two more Oscar-nominations for his work in Finding Neverland, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and has gone on to appear in such popular films as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Public Enemies, Alice in Wonderland, The Tourist, Rango, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, as well as a cameo reprising his role as Tom Hanson in the big screen version of 21 Jump Street. In addition to acting, Depp also wrote and directed the 1997 movie The Brave with screen legend Marlon Brando, and produced such films as The Rum Diary, Dark Shadows, and Martin Scorsese’s Hugo. Now Depp is taking on the coveted role of Tonto in the latest film adaption of The Lone Ranger, which he also executive produced and opens in theaters on July 3rd.
