With this new fourth domestic trailer pumping up audiences for The Lone Ranger, Disney has finally hit a real sweet spot in selling this new endeavor from three of the key figures who made Pirates of the Caribbean a big hit a decade ago.
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.
You can dismiss Top Gun as a prototype for today's mindless blockbusters, as a jingoistic bit of fist-pumping propaganda, or as a metaphor for the love that dare not speak its name. You can dismiss Top Gun as many things, but when you hear Harold Faltermeyer's distinctive and utterly-of-its-time score opening up the trailer for next month's IMAX 3D re-release, you might just feel a pleasant tickle or two in your nostalgia bone.
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.
If you've been waiting with baited breath to see jingoistic aerial action and Val Kilmer sexily biting nothing but air in spectacular IMAX 3D, then you're in luck, because Paramount Pictures has announced that Top Gun is indeed getting a limited IMAX 3D run in February.
