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.
Fans of original science fiction with something on its mind ought to buckle their seatbelts.
Sony Pictures has finally unveiled the first theatrical trailer for Elysium, writer-director Neill Blomkamp's follow-up to District 9.
Debuting exclusively on Yahoo! beginning April 9th at 4:00pm PT is the first official trailer to the new sci-fi epic Elysium, which opens in theaters on August 9th. The film was written and directed by Neill Blomkamp and is a follow-up to his Academy Award-nominated sci-fi masterpiece District 9.
In addition to reuniting Blomkamp with his longtime friend and District 9 lead Sharlto Copley, the movie also stars Academy Award-winners Matt Damon (Promised Land), and Jodie Foster (The Silence of the Lambs), as well as Alice Braga (Predetors), Diego Luna (Casa de Mi Padre), and William Fichtner (The Dark Knight). As if Blomkamp didn’t already bring enough sci-fi cred to the project, Elysium was produced by writer Simon Kinberg, who is currently penning X-Men: Days of Future Past, as well as Star Wars Episode VIII and IX along with legendary filmmaker Lawrence Kasdan.
In the afternoon on Monday, I had the opportunity to attend a special event at the Arclight Theater in Hollywood where fans and press alike gathered to be the first to see the new trailer for the film a day before it’s premiere. In attendance were Blomkamp, Copley, and Kinberg, who participated in a brief Q & A after the screening. Also participating in the discussion was the film’s star Matt Damon, via satellite from Berlin, where it was nine o’clock at night and the actor was screening the trailer for a packed crowd of German fans. In addition to the trailer, the actors and filmmakers screened ten never-before-seen minutes of the film, which was essentially a sizzle reel that incorporated the trailer and gave the international audience a better understanding for the scope of the film’s story.
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.
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.
Aside from a little release date shuffle, things have been quiet on the Elysium front since Comic-Con in July. That makes perfect sense, as the science fiction film doesn't arrive in theaters until August of next year. Nonetheless, a new image from Neill Blomkamp's follow-up to District 9 has arrived online to remind us all that Elyisum is indeed on the way.
Yesterday, Disney dropped no less than seven official images from The Lone Ranger, next summer's tentpole action-adventure starring Armie Hammer as the eponymous masked hero and Johnny Depp as Tonto, who in the serialized character's hsitory was his sidekick. The studio has followed up on those stills with three more looks at the western, along with the first The Lone Ranger teaser poster.
Director Neill Blomkamp (District 9) has the most intriguing of concepts centering his next film. His Elysium stars, Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, landed at Comic-Con and told Movie Fanatic and iamROGUE.com as much about it as they could. You see, the film about a futuristic world where the rich all live on a luxury space station while the poor and middle class fight over the scraps that is otherwise known as modern life on Earth, is surrounded by secrecy.
