Disney is getting into the last phase of its push for Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger, starting with a presentation of footage at CinemaCon today. The next step is a new trailer, which you can watch below, and a live-streamed Q&A with Verbinski and his stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. You can watch that Q&A below after the trailer.

The first two character posters for The Lone Ranger highlighted two figures we already know pretty well — the Lone Ranger (Armie Hammer) and Tonto (Johnny Depp) — but now the marketing team has moved on to some other folks we’re not quite so familiar with.
Helena Bonham Carter‘s Red, Ruth Wilson‘s Rebecca Reid, and William Fichtner‘s Butch Cavendish each get a turn in the spotlight, along with a pithy description explaining more about their characters. And it’s a good thing, too, since they don’t get much to do in the latest TV spot. Hit the jump for the new posters and video.

Odds are you’re already plenty familiar with the Lone Ranger and Tonto, who’ve been kicking around the pop cultural landscape for the better part of a century. And you probably also have a fairly good idea of what Gore Verbinski‘s done with the characters in the upcoming The Lone Ranger film, thanks to all the promos and stills we’ve seen so far.
But in case you want to get even more up close and personal with the iconic Western duo, Disney has just released a pair of character posters featuring Johnny Depp as the off-kilter Tonto and Armie Hammer as the mysterious Ranger. Check them out after the jump.
We’ll see a new trailer for Jerry Bruckheimer‘s The Lone Ranger soon as Disney plans an April 17 event to show off twenty minutes new footage accompanied by a Q&A and other bells and whistles.
But for now the studio has dropped a fiery new image. It’s a stark, appealing pic that could be from just about any western shot in the past decade. In that respect it’s pretty good, and we’ll hope the forthcoming footage has enough promise to match this and the sense of weirdness we get from Johnny Depp‘s serious, bird-headed appoach to Tonto.

As a former Texas Ranger who fights for justice in the Old West, the Lone Ranger is a quintessentially American hero. But as a big-budget Disney spectacle, The Lone Ranger will be riding all over the globe this summer.
The studio has just unleashed a new international trailer for the tentpole pic, which stars Armie Hammer as the lantern-jawed do-gooder and Johnny Depp as is off-kilter sidekick Tonto. There’s plenty of exciting new action footage to be found in it, so check it out after the jump.

There’s no better place than the Oscars to see all your favorite movie stars assembled in one place, but the trailer for Jimmy Kimmel‘s Movie: The Movie V2 might be a close second.
In his post-Oscars show last year, Kimmel debuted an epic, star-studded 9-minute trailer poking fun at every obnoxious movie trope under the sun. This year, he’s back with an even more epic, even more star-studded trailer for Movie: The Movie V2. Because as Kimmel quips, “When you have a big success in Hollywood, there’s only one reasonable thing you can do, and that is cheapen it with a sequel.”
Watch Movie: The Movie V2 after the jump, followed by Kimmel’s other big movie parody, Life of Psy. Yup, that’s exactly what it sounds like.

Disney’s biggest movie of the year might just be The Lone Ranger, which resurrects the classic American hero with Armie Hammer behind the mask. But the real hero of this take is really the Native American warrior Tonto, played by Johnny Depp. Gore Verbinski‘s movie looks lie a big western in the style of WB’s Sherlock Holmes with a little bit of native mysticism and a whole lot of gunplay and train action.
The latest footage for the film has been released in a new Super Bowl spot; check it out below.
Update from Editor Peter Sciretta: The trailer has been released and is embedded after the jump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Disney has released a new trailer for Disney’s The Lone Ranger. Gore Verbinski directs Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the Ranger in a version of the classic American western storyline that puts Tonto as the real mastermind of the pair. This footage isn’t much, but it gives up a bit more of Tonto and the Ranger than did the teaser, as it shows Depp’s enigmatic character talking Hammer into his mask. Read More »

Before The Social Network, before The Lone Ranger, before The Dark Knight, Iron Man, Thor and The Avengers, Armie Hammer was already Batman. The year was 2007 and Warner Bros., trying to make a superhero team up film well-before The Avengers, cast the then unknown actor as the Dark Knight himself in Justice League. Of course, this never ended up happening and the studio had unprecedented success with another actor as Batman.
Fast forward a few years and the studio is once again trying to get a Justice League movie off the ground, reinvigorated by the success of The Avengers. Will Beall (Gangster Squad) has been writing the screenplay and Ben Affleck was rumored to be Warner’s choice to direct. In that same vein, the latest rumor is Hammer is “back on Warner Bros. radar” to play the Caped Crusader. Read more after the jump.
