New Trailer for Rango Goes Western
Posted 12.14.10 by Ryan
The initial teaser trailer for director Gore Verbinski's CG-animated Rango wasn't too revealing, leaving viewers scratching their heads over what the movie was about. The
second trailer shows the chameleon Rango (voiced by Johnny Depp) out in the desert, clearly unfamiliar with the environment. Verbinski explained in July that Rango is a pet chameleon "in search of an audience" which he finds in the small town of Dirt, which the director said is "really hungry for a hero, and they get the great pretender." That aspect is in full display in the second trailer, which shows Rango channeling Clint Eastwood to become the town's protector from the area's natural predators.
Rango opens March 18, 2011, and features the voice talents of Abigail Breslin, Ray Winstone, Isla Fisher, Harry Dean Stanton, Bill Nighy and Timothy Olyphant.
