The Lone Ranger

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.

Fiery New ‘The Lone Ranger’ Photo

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.

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.

With spring creeping up on us, a whole bunch of images have just been revealed for two very different high-profile releases. Bryan Singer‘s Jack the Giant Slayer is a CG-heavy fantasy epic based on the classic fairy tale, while Derek Cianfrance‘s The Place Beyond the Pines takes an atypical approach to the crime thriller genre.

In addition, we have a new still for Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger, which isn’t due out until summer but should be revealing a bit of new footage during this weekend’s Super Bowl. Check out all the pictures after the jump.

In an age of common air travel, telecommunications, and the World Wide Web, North Korea may be the only country that remains truly isolated from the rest of the globe. While it is possible to visit, it’s notoriously difficult to explore the land. Foreigners are carefully monitored by translators, guides, and guards. But thanks to a deal with New Regency and Gore Verbinski, we may soon be getting a inside look at the secretive nation.

The studio has just acquired the rights to Pyongyang, Guy Delisle‘s graphic novel based on his experiences in the DPRK capital. Verbinski is set to direct, as well as produce through his Blind Wink banner. The script comes from Steve Conrad (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty), and is said to be dakly comedic in tone. More details after the jump.

Watch The Full-Length ‘The Lone Ranger’ Trailer

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 »

While it’s understandable that some diehard fans think the very idea of another Star Wars trilogy is unforgivable sacrilege, we’re more inclined to think it could be an unexpected blessing. Disney’s got their hands on one of the richest mythologies in pop culture, and enough clout that it can book some serious talent to do it justice. So with that in mind, we’ve put together a list of ten filmmakers we’d love to see explore a galaxy far, far away — and five we’d rather stayed here on Earth. Hit the jump to read.
