The Lone Ranger: Movie Review

Published by

THE LONE RANGER
On paper, the idea of a new movie version of The Lone Ranger sounds fantastic. It was once a popular western television series created in the 30's in which our hero held onto the same solid moral values that made so many cowboys in westerns such perfect role models. Put that on top of the slow resurgence of westerns and The Lone Ranger movie sounds like a...

'The Lone Ranger' Gets Another Trailer, While Disney Really Hopes You...

Published by

THE LONE RANGER
Well, here’s the fourth trailer for Disney’s The Lone Ranger, the mega-budget film (estimated at $250 million) that cost just about as much as Disney’s John Carter film did last year, and has had nearly as many behind-the-scenes snags and production issues (it’s almost as if the universe is trying to prevent these movies from being made, and the Mickey Mouse...

'The Lone Ranger' New Trailer: Cowboys Of The Caribbean

Published by

THE LONE RANGER
It’s time for yet another trailer/ attempt for Walt Disney Pictures to try and convince the moviegoing populace that watching The Lone Ranger will be a good idea.  And with this newest trailer, it once again just seems like yet another big, bloated and loud $200 million studio project.  Even further, it seems exactly like another Johnny Depp franchise, but with cowboy hats.

'The Lone Ranger' International Trailer Packs a Punch

Published by

THE LONE RANGER
The Lone Ranger comes out this summer, and it's already being targeted as one of 2013's misfires. For whatever ever reason (perhaps critics wanting to take shots at Johnny Depp for the last Pirates movie and for Dark Shadows, but also its inflated budget was made public before the film was shot), it's already getting...

'The Lone Ranger' Super Bowl Trailer: Stop, Johnny Depp, Please Just Stop

Published by

THE LONE RANGER
Well the Super Bowl happened on Sunday night, meaning that it was time for our yearly dose of mega soda, potato chip, and film commercials.  One of the biggest trailers of the evening was the clip for The Lone Ranger, a film that seems worse and worse with every new glimpse of footage that we get.  Check out the trailer below.

'Justice League': Armie Hammer To Play Batman?

While Armie Hammer, who first came to mainstream attention by playing the Winklevoss twins (or Winklevii, if you like) in David Fincher’s The Social Network, is already set to play an American icon as the titular character in the upcoming The Lone Ranger, he was set to play another famous hero.  Before director George Miller (the Mad...

Yesterday we saw the teaser poster, but today we’ve got the full teaser trailer.  That’s right—our first full look at Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger, starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer.   And after all the running over budget, the stories of an runaway train of a production, what do we get?  Basically, what we expected: a very slick and polished bit of mainstream...

'The Lone Ranger' Poster Goes Gritty

Published by

the lone ranger header
It’s been a long road for Gore Verbinski’s  Johnny Depp / Armie Hammer-starring update of The Lone Ranger.  Horror stories of an out of control production, control freak director, and massive budget overruns have seemingly made the film appear to be the prototypical mainstream Hollywood bloatfest.  However, recent pictures from the film have begun to generate buzz, and...

'The Lone Ranger' Has Gone Over Budget (Again)

Published by

the lone ranger
Proving that Hollywood has not exactly learned its lesson about not pumping more and more mega-millions into already bloated budgets and out of control productions (cough, John Carter, cough cough World War Z), it was leaked today that Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger has gone massively over budget (a budget which itself was slashed months ago).  Now, the Lone...

Jack White To Compose 'The Lone Ranger' Musical Score

Published by

Jack White
While most of the focus on Gore Verbinski’s upcoming full-length adaptation of The Lone Ranger has focused on Johnny Depp’s pasty-faced and eccentric take on the sidekick character of Tonto, news broke this week that another pale, oddball artist will be bringing his weirdness to The Lone Ranger—former White Stripes frontman Jack White.

Curious as to how Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer look in the upcoming cinematic adaptation of The Lone Ranger?  Well, you’re in luck, as producer Jerry Bruckheimer, taking a break from producing his dazzlingly horrible roster of films, tweeted an image featuring Hammer as the Lone Ranger and Depp as his Native American sidekick, Tonto.  Check out the image...

Johnny Depp's The Lone Ranger Begins Production

Published by

depp-rango3-1-11
For a while there The Lone Ranger looked DOA, but today it's actually in production. In fact, it's shooting right now. Though the film reunited the Pirates of the Caribbean creative team of Johnny Depp, producer Jerry Bruckheimer, (now Academy Award winning) director Gore Verbinski and writers Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio with Disney, it...

Julia Roberts in the Mirror Mirror Trailer Looks Like Bad Camp

Published by

Julia Roberts in Mirror Mirror
Oh dear. We're going to be getting two competing Snow White pictures in 2012, in the summer there's one starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron with a more grungy and battle-worn approach, but first there's going to be Mirror Mirror in March. It's fair to say both are going for completely different takes on the material - for the trailer...

J. Edgar: Movie Review

Published by

Leonardo DiCaprio in J. Edgar
Clint Eastwood has been working so hard and so much, it's easy to be bowled over that an 81-year-old has churned out nearly a film a year for over two decades (generally if he takes a year off it's because he directed two the year previous). For his latest he's assembled Leonardo DiCaprio, Naomi Watts, and Armie Hammer for a portrait of one of the most important and powerful men of the 20th...

Is Johnny Depp's Lone Ranger Back From the Dead?

Published by

Last we reported, Gore Verbinski and Johnny Depp's take on The Lone Ranger was put out to pasture because of concerns of a huge budget. Now Deadline Hollywood is reporting that the film has finally got a contained budget and is going to try to start shooting in 2012, with an official announcement due next week.

Leonardo Di Caprio in the First Trailer for Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar

Published by

Leonardo DiCaprio in J. Edgar
Leonardo DiCaprio. Clint Eastwood. J. Edgar. Is it Oscar time already? That's the vibe coming off of Eastwood's latest, which just had its trailer release. It fits a lot of bio-pic formulas, with Judi Dench playing his mother, and Armie Hammer playing his possible lover. Once revered as a feared lawman, now seen as corrupt as some of the people he went after, J. Edgar...
