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.

Hit the jump to watch the new 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.

In anticipation of the coming trailer, Disney has released a couple of new posters and a few new images from Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski’s upcoming big-budget take on The Lone Ranger.  The film takes a Western approach to the classic television series with Armie Hammer (The Social Network) assuming the role of the titular hero and Johnny Depp inhabiting his trusty sidekick Tonto.  These images highlight Verbinski’s massive scope for the film as well as his knack for visuals while the posters give us close-up looks at the pic’s stars (ie. Johnny Depp wearing a dead bird as a hat)

Hit the jump to take a look at the new posters and images, and check back here on Collider on April 17th to check out the new trailer.  The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carter.  The Lone Ranger opens on July 3rd.

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.

Every year, Jimmy Kimmel Live follows the Oscars with a star-studded sketch.  Last year, audiences were treated to a trailer for Movie: The Movie, which featured dozens of movie stars parodying every film genre and cliché.  Naturally, every hit needs a sequel, and JKL has delivered with Movie: The Movie 2V.  I’ll let you be the judge between which trailer is better, but I would say the sequel surpasses the original when it comes to the obligatory Matt Damon joke.

This weekend, we’ve been showing you toys from Toy Fair 2013 including action figures for Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 3, and more. It’s all about the merchandising, and if you’re going to get reasonably-priced action figures, you can’t do much better than NECA.  The toymaker has released images for some of their big 2013 toys with a look at their figures for The Lone Ranger and Kick-Ass 2.  The figures look good, but they also provide our first look at Kick-Ass 2‘s villain, “The Motherfucker” (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), formerly Red Mist.  It’s a wild costume, I’m curious to see what it looks like in real life.

Hit the jump to check out the toys.  The Lone Ranger opens July 3rd.  Kick-Ass 2 opens June 28th.

Teaser for THE LONE RANGER Super Bowl Spot plus New Poster

Super Bowl XLVII is nearly upon us, and even though my beloved Falcons aren’t playing (10 yards shy of victory!), it will still be worth watching for both the football (Go Niners!) and for the ads (Go consumer culture!).  Studios will be showing ads for their biggest movies, and yesterday Disney showed off a teaser for their Oz the Great and Powerful ad.  Today, Disney has released a brief teaser for the Super Bowl spot for The Lone Ranger.  What’s weird about the teaser is that to watch the whole thing, you have to tune into the pre-show, and that’s never going to happen.  Adtime during gametime is running between $3.7 million and $3.8 million, so I can’t help but wonder if Disney is trying to save money by running their Lone Ranger ad before the game.  That seems like a wasted half-measure because the pre-game show lasts about 39 hours.  It would be better to air the ad during Puppy Bowl.

Hit the jump to check out the Super Bowl teaser along with a new poster.  The film stars Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham CarterThe Lone Ranger opens July 3rd.

New Trailer for THE LONE RANGER Starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer

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.

First Trailer for THE LONE RANGER Starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer

by     Posted 2 years, 19 days ago

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.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film stars Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carter.  The Lone Ranger opens July 3, 2013.

After squinting at set photos and videos over the past couple of months, we got a fresh batch of official images from director Gore Verbinski’s (the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy) The Lone Ranger yesterday.  Now a few more images have surfaced, giving us further looks at stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in the adventure pic.  While yesterday’s images were more atmospheric in nature, this batch gives us a closer look at a couple of action sequences.  Verbinski crafted three thrilling adventure epics with his Pirates films, and I’m looking forward to seeing what his $250 million Western has in store for us.  With two sets of images having been released in two days, I wouldn’t be surprised if a teaser trailer of some sort was right around the corner.

New Images from THE LONE RANGER Starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer [Updated with High-Resolution]

After 150 days, filming has wrapped on Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger.  It hasn’t been an easy production, which was delayed due to budget concerns.  THR reports that once shooting finally began, the production was beset by dust and wind storms, the on-set death of a welder, and Johnny Depp sustaining an injury, all of which reportedly caused the budget to balloon back to the $250 million (or more) Disney wanted to avoid.  While studios are doing their best to try and be more careful with what they spend, Verbinski’s blockbusters have never been cheap, although I’m not sure why a western would cost so much even with the delays (the original budget was $215 million).

Hit the jump to check out new images from the movie along with some quotes from Verbinski.  The film also stars Armie Hammer, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham CarterThe Lone Ranger opens July 3, 2013.

We recently posted some set photos of Johnny Depp in costume as Tonto in Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger; one of those photos featured a gently-used railroad caboose.  In a new batch of set photos, that railroad car is central to a practical stunt sequence that involves Depp and the Lone Ranger himself, Armie Hammer.  As a bonus, we’ve included a video that lets you see the duo in action during the stunt (sort of).  While no horses were involved in the train car stunt, we do have some shots of Depp and Hammer with their respective steeds.  Hit the jump to check them out.

MIRROR MIRROR Blu-ray Review

With 2012’s Battle of Snow White more or less over, the time has come to argue about who won (he says without a trace of irony). Opinions vary – and no one over at the Walt Disney Company has lost any sleep – but I’m backing the one that didn’t have Kristen Stewart mumbling her way through a half-assed version of the Crispian’s Day Speech. Mirror, Mirror benefits from a riotous sense of fun – something Snow White and the Huntsman utterly disregarded – and from playing with our expectations instead of simply ignoring them.

Comic-Con: Disney Surprises with First Trailer for THE LONE RANGER

by     Posted 2 years, 102 days ago

As one last surprise for the studio’s Comic-Con panel, Disney showed off a teaser trailer for The Lone Ranger.  Most of the trailer has Tom Wilkinson (who plays the film’s villain) providing narration about the importance of trains.  He explains that because trains will be the fastest mode of transportation in the old west, and whoever controls them “controls space and time.”  It’s unintentionally funny because, it’s, you know, trains.  But the visual style is full of Verbinski’s indulgences, like a brief shot that goes into a saloon and there’s a prostitute swinging from a wooden crescent moon that’s suspended from the ceiling.  There’s also a slo-mo shot of a bunch of white guys in around a table getting shot at.  Hit the jump for more.
