After plenty of trailers and posters, the first official 'The Lone Ranger' clip has arrived and it gives us a taste of what Disney's epic action western will feel like. If you guessed that it would feel a lot like the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films...you're right. Between director Gore Verbsinki's familiar style and the mere presence of Johnny Depp, this clip looks very much like something written for a 'Pirates' film retconned for the Old West.
'The Lone Ranger' will be hitting theaters in a little over two weeks. Right now it doesn't feel like one of the summer's biggest tentpole films; perhaps it was waiting for some of the big superhero films to hit screens before going for the full-court ad press. But unlike its comic book competition, this film wants you to know many of its big set pieces were done practically.
The newly resurrected Lone Ranger and his right-hand man, Tonto, band together to fight injustice.
Native American warrior Tonto recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid, a man of the law, into a legend of justice.
Things have been awfully quiet around Disney's upcoming 'The Lone Ranger,' but with the summer movie season rapidly approaching, we can probably expect to start seeing a lot more (and getting sick) of it sooner rather than later. Two new character posters have arrived, each spotlighting the heroes of the film: Johnny Depp's Tonto and Armie Hammer's Lone Ranger.
Considering the loud drum beat some franchise pictures have already made for their summer releases (think of how many 'Iron Man 3' TV spots, posters, etc. have been released), the lead up to this summer's 'The Lone Ranger' has been relatively quiet so far. Perhaps that's why producer Jerry Bruckheimer released an image from the film today.
'Transcendence' is starting to look like it'll have something for everyone. For some, it's the exciting directorial debut of Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister (the man behind the camera for most of Christopher Nolan's films). For others, it's the next Johnny Depp movie. For those still not interested, maybe the casting of the lovely Rebecca Hall will sweeten the deal.
