Lone Ranger Banner

Disney’s The Lone Ranger is a summer film punctuated with a huge question mark. On the one hand, it’s from director Gore Verbinski, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and star Johnny Depp, a proven triumvirate of Hollywood magic, and the trailers have certainly shown spectacle on the grandest scale. Then there’s the fact it’s based on a property many of today’s kids have never heard of and set in a genre that rarely resonates with younger, Disney centric audiences. It could either be a hit on the scale of Pirates of the Caribbean or a disappointment like John Carter. The jury is out.

The final trailer certainly helps the first argument, compacting insane effects and funny character beats into a compact 100 seconds. The Lone Ranger opens July 3; check it out below. Read More »

The Lone Ranger

In conjunction with yesterday’s new domestic trailer for Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger, a new international trailer has also hit the web. While this one gets into the plot a little bit — Tonto’s (Johnny Depp) reaction to meeting the Lone Ranger (Armie Hammer) is a highlight — its focus is really on the action. The obviously expensive, hilariously absurd, and utterly awesome action. Hit the jump to check it out.

The Lone Ranger

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.

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.

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.
