Yesterday we saw some new official photos from Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger, which stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer as Tonto and the Ranger, respectively. Now we’ve got a couple more new photos along with a strange and mysterious teaser poster. The poster highlights Tonto over the Ranger, demonstrating that while Hammer’s character may get the film’s title, this is really Depp’s show. Read More »
There are two big batches of official images to pass along this afternoon. One is for Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger, and while the pics are technically new, they don’t show off much we haven’t seen. That is, Johnny Depp‘s Tonto looks intense and more than a bit weird; Armie Hammer looks heroic and idealistic, and their world is one well-known to followers of classic Westerns.
The other batch, from the comedy Movie 43, is a bit more unpredictable. The film is a comedy anthology, with 25 shorts from almost a dozen directors: Patrik Forsberg, Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Rusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk and Brett Ratner. The cast includes Kate Winslet, Anna Faris, Halle Berry, Emma Stone, Terrence Howard, Jason Sudaekis, and Johnny Knoxville. The PR line on the film is that it is “not for the faint of heart,” which is fairly enticing. Some of the images below give soft clues about what to expect. Read More »
After over four months of filming and one terrible tragedy, Gore Verbinski‘s big budget Johnny Depp Disney movie The Lone Ranger finished production this week. That work is leading up to a July 3, 2013 release date. Even after cuts were made to the film’s massive budget, rumors have the film costing upwards of $250 million but the first teaser trailer didn’t quite provide a tangable idea of where all that money was going. Now we have a clue.
Several photos from the final week of filming have arrived online and they show an incredibly massive stunt featuring Johnny Depp as Tonto, his stunt double and what appears to be a train flying through the air. Be warned that, while there’s no context surrounding these photos, odds are they contain spoilers. Check out the images after the jump.

Briefly: Tragedy has befallen Gore Verbinski‘s latest film, The Lone Ranger. A crew member passed away while setting up some kind of underwater scene on Friday. Disney has yet to release his name or job description but confirmed the terrible loss in a brief statement.
We regretfully confirm that a Lone Ranger crew member has passed away after being taken to a local hospital. Our hearts and thoughts are with his family, friends, and colleagues at this time, and our full support is behind the investigation into the circumstances of this terrible event.

Disney collectors lose their minds for Vinylmations: three inch tall molds of Mickey Mouse painted in all kinds of different ways. Some Vinylmations are simply just artistic designs, others are specific to certain places or brands, but they’re only sold in Disney parks and stores. That, along with some characters being rarer than others and entire lines being regularly retired, make for very collectible pieces of Disney merchandise.
Disney has just revealed the latest set of Vinylmations and it’s focused on their tiny animation studio in northern California: Pixar. Characters from all of Pixar’s movies have been adapted into the Vinylmation mold from A Bug’s Life, to Wall-E, Finding Nemo and Ratatouille. There’s even a set for 2013′s Monsters University, seen above, as well as Oz the Great and Powerful and The Lone Ranger. Check them all out after the jump. Read More »
The surprise ending to Disney’s Hall H panel today at San Diego Comic Con was the debut of an “in production” teaser trailer for Gore Verbinski‘s The Lone Ranger. The film stars Armie Hammer (The Social Network, J. Edgar) as the title character, and Johnny Depp as the classic character Tonto.
We’ve known for some time that the film features several sequences involving trains, and that it is Verbinski’s own take on ideas familiar to Western film fans. While the footage on display today was pretty light on Ranger and Tonto, there was enough on screen to give us a good idea of the film’s energy and ambitions. Read More »

Comic Con kicks off in San Diego on July 11, and with the show only a month away we haven’t had too much concrete news about what will appear, and what is likely to miss the show. We know that The Dark Knight Rises won’t be there, as Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan have avoided SDCC in the past, and the film opens just after the event, anyway.
But what will be there? Quite a few studios aren’t bothering with the big Hall H panels that have been a cornerstone of the film presence in the past: Paramount, 20th Century Fox, Relativity Media, DreamWorks and DreamWorks Animation reportedly won’t do Hall H panels, and Universal remains undecided on that front.
But Disney and Marvel will be in Hall H, and Warner Bros. has plans to show up with non-Nolan footage. More info is below. Read More »
