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.

It's hard not to collectively groan when you read a title like that. It's not that we're groaning over the fact that Johnny Depp has another big acting job to do, but it's just that he continues to lean more towards the odd, quirky kind of characters very similar to Captain Jack Sparrow that made him into an international superstar. While some may argue that he's drying up the well when it...

If the name Wally Pfister sounds familiar to you, it better, especially if you're a rabid Christopher Nolan fan. This is the same man who shot MementoThe Dark Knight Rises, you name it. To put it in a nutshell, he's kind of a big deal. He's marking his directorial debut with Transcendence, a present day science...

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

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...

When we heard that Wes Anderson was teaming up with Tim Burton favorite, Johnny Depp, for his forthcoming movie The Grand Budapest Hotel, we were excited to see what the fruit of that collaboration would be. But we got our hopes up for nothing, because Depp is not in The Grand Budapest Hotel. He didn't drop out, he was just never actually cast in the...

UPDATE:  Disney has released a statement confirming that Pirates 5 is in development, but that the news of a Puerto Rico shoot this November "isn't accurate."

Johnny Depp's 'The Thin Man' Delayed By Warner Bros.

Johnny Depp has become something of a Hollywood bad omen of late—first, Dark Shadows tanked in the wake of The Avengers, and not even the man behind Jack Sparrow could save it.  Then, more news from the increasingly trouble Lone Ranger production broke, with stories of an out of control budget and an overly controlling director.  Now, The Thin...

'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...

Box Office Predictions: 'The Avengers' Puts Competition in 'Dark Shadows'

The Cast of Dark Shadows
When you've got a picture opening the week after another film has had the biggest opening weekend of all time, well brother, you're in for a hard road. Even if The Avengers falls 70% this weekend that would mean a little over $60 Million dollars. That's a steep hurdle for Dark Shadows. Surely no one is expected the film to do...

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.

When pictures first emerged of Johnny Depp on the set of The Lone Ranger as the titular heroe's longtime sidekick, Tonto, the general internet reaction was, "why the hell is Marilyn Manson in a western…and more importantly, why is a bird sitting on his head?"  Well, the eccentric actor has now spoken out, explaining the meaning of his mysterious Tonto...

Finally - The Dark Shadows Trailer

Published by

The Cast of Dark Shadows
Tim Burton's Dark Shadows is due out May 11, and last week I speculated that if we didn't see a trailer by now, we would surely hear about a release date change. Well, the trailer's here. It also partly explains why we haven't been bombarded with high gloss adverts already: it's counter-programming. Johnny Depp stars alongside Eva Green and Michelle Pfieffer in this...

Johnny Depp in Dark Shadows
Rare is the summer blockbuster that doesn't announce itself by Super Bowl weekend. Part of franchise filmmaking is branding, and getting the word out there is exceptionally important to keep people interested in big movies. Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, starring Johnny Depp, has yet to release a poster or a trailer, yet is still supposedly set for a May 11 release. We...
