In case you didn’t get your fill of Disney’s The Lone Ranger yesterday from the new trailer debut and Steve’s interviews with producer Jerry Bruckheimer and star Armie Hammer, a new international trailer has now made its way online that offers up even more new footage. This trailer focuses more on the fiim’s humor and, unsurprisingly, Johnny Depp (he’s a big draw overseas, you know). Director Gore Verbinski has a real knack for crafting exciting and coherent action sequences, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what he’s put together for this mega-budget Western.
Hit the jump to watch the international trailer. The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, and Helena Bonham Carter. The Lone Ranger opens on July 3rd.
Disney has released a new trailer for director Gore Verbinski‘s upcoming film The Lone Ranger. This lengthy theatrical trailer begins by focusing on the origin of Armie Hammer‘s titular ranger and how his partnership with Johnny Depp‘s Tonto was forged, and from there we get quite a few looks at the many characters and set pieces that make up the action/adventure pic. There are more than a few similarities to be found between this and Verbinski’s Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, as this trailer showcases a massive scale, a kooky Depp performance, plenty of dirty, nefarious characters, and a possible supernatural element. The visuals here look gorgeous, and while I’m not sold on Depp’s performance or even necessarily the story, I’m still eager to see what Verbinski has cooked up on a very big screen when this thing hits theaters.

A third new trailer for Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, is now online. The international trailer comes with Japanese narration, but the action transcends any language barriers. Focusing on stunt sequences, explosive pyrotechnics and even some hidden-weapon gadgetry from star Helena Bonham Carter, the new trailer is short on dialogue, but certainly delivers on the excitement.
Also starring Tom Wilkinson, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, William Fichtner and Ruth Wilson, The Lone Ranger rides into stateside theaters July 3rd. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.
A new trailer for director Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Rangerhas been released. This new trailer finally takes a little bit of focus off of Johnny Depp‘s Tonto and places it on the eponymous character (Armie Hammer). We learn a little bit of the hero’s back story, and that Silver is a very odd horse. I’m not sure if I’ll ever get used to Tonto’s fractured dialogue or Bojan Bazelli‘s washed-out cinematography, but Verbinski’s earned my trust, so I’ll keep hoping that this movie delivers.

As we whippersnappers start watching movies on our TVs and phones, a desperate Hollywood has turned their attentions to their steadiest and most solid base of theatergoers: the AARP crowd. In that vein, Fox Searchlight is looking to make a sequel to this year’s surprise hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, based on a novel, that starred a host of, well, gray-haired actors: Judi Dench (Casino Royale), Bill Nighy (Love Actually), Maggie Smith (Downton Abbey) and Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins), and others, including one young gun in Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire).
Ol Parker (who wrote the screenplay for the first film) will send in a treatment to the eager studio soon, the eagerness stemming from the original film having grossed thirteen times its nearly $10 million budget. The eagerness also rests with the actors, as the principal cast is apparently keen on returning. For more on the “gray is green” trend, hit the jump.
The first trailer for director Gore Verbinski’s (the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy) The Lone Ranger has been released. Though the film features what are likely a couple of showy performances from Johnny Depp (Tonto) and The Social Network‘s Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger himself), this trailer is mostly about trains. Matt made a similar comment regarding the footage shown at Comic-Con, so it’s safe to assume that the mode of transportation plays a large role in the film. Verbinski appears to have put together one hell of a pretty-lookin’ movie, but we don’t see or hear enough of Depp’s Tonto to judge whether he’s veered too far over the top or hit that Jack Sparrow sweet spot. I’m encouraged by Verbinski’s talent and the impressive line of actors in the ensemble (including trailer-narrator Tom Wilkinson as the villain), so hopefully we’re in for a big, fun Western adventure.

- Tom Wilkinson will star opposite Joel Edgerton in Felony, an Australian thriller that Edgerton wrote. Matthew Saville will direct.

The dramedy The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, from acclaimed and accomplished director John Madden, follows seven retirees from the U.K. in need of a transformation, who find themselves spending their golden years at a rundown hotel that does not quite live up to the lush amenities pictured in the brochure. The hotel’s naive young owner, Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel), inherited the once sophisticated building from his father, hoping to turn it into a high-end luxury hotel. Instead, the water and electricity are iffy at best, and India’s overwhelming contrasts are both intoxicating and frightening for these seven newcomers, who are unsure about what the future might hold. The film stars Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton, Ronald Pickup and Celia Imrie.
During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, director John Madden talked about why this premise was so attractive to him, determining what aspects of India to capture, the fact that he didn’t anticipate quite how much this entire experience would change everyone involved with making the film, and assembling such an incredibly talented cast. He also talked about what attracted him to directing the pilot for the Showtime drama series Masters of Sex, about Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), the pioneers of the science of human sexuality whose research touched off the sexual revolution. Check out what he had to say after the jump.
We are pleased to debut an exclusive poster for the crime thriller The Samaritan starring Samuel L. Jackson. In the movie, Jackson plays a paroled con man who wants to build a new life, but gets sucked back into the con game by his ex-partner’s scheming son. I like the simple color scheme of the poster, and who isn’t entranced by Jackson pointing guns at things?
Hit the jump to check out the poster. The film also stars Ruth Negga, Luke Kirby, and Tom Wilkinson. The Samaritan will be available on VOD and Digital outlets (iTunes, SundanceNOW, Amazon Streaming, XBOX Zune) on April 6th, and hit theaters on May 16th.
After a rough pre-production period, filming is finally underway on Oscar-winner Gore Verbinski‘s adaptation of The Lone Ranger. More importantly, Disney has released the first synopsis for the movie. It’s not big on details, but the gist is that Tonto (Johnny Depp) talks about how he teamed up with John Reid (aka the Lone Ranger; played by Armie Hammer) and how they bonded during their adventures. It’s an origin story/buddy movie, and that seems like a fine approach to the material. The devil is in the details, but we shouldn’t expect on hearing those for quite some time.
Hit the jump for the press release which includes the full text of the synopsis. The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carter. The Lone Ranger opens May 31, 2013.

Earlier this summer, Gore Verbinksi‘s adaptation of The Lone Ranger was rounding up its cast. Johnny Depp was signed on to play Tonto, Armie Hammer was playing the Ranger, and the movie was lining up Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson (Luther), Dwight Yoakam, Barry Pepper, and Helena Bonham Carter for supporting roles. But then Disney pumped the brakes and wanted a lower budget, they eventually got it after some protracted negotiations, and now pre-production is back underway.
However, this delay moved back the start of production which meant that scheduling had changed for the actors. Depp and Hammer never really left, and now it looks like Verbinski is trying to get his other actors back. Deadline reports that Wilkinson has returned to play the villain Latham Cole while Wilson is still playing the movie’s female lead. Disney is talking again with Carter, Pepper, and Yoakam as well as James Badge Dale. Production on the $215 million cowboy movie begins in February 2012 for a May 31, 2013 release.
