It's been a little while since Disney released a trailer for their upcoming adaptation of The Lone Ranger (during the Super Bowl, to be exact), but, with only a few months left before the movie is released, the promotional campaign continues, especially overseas. The latest snippets of footage hail from a newly-released Japanese trailer, which keeps mostly to the usual footage of the Lone Ranger (Armie Hammer) coming to in the middle of the desert to meet his future partner Tonto (Johnny Depp), but includes a look at a leg gun used by Helena Bonham Carter's character Red, the madam of a brothel. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.15.13 by Ryan
After Sunday's Golden Globes ceremony, this weekend's horror movie Mama doesn't just star Jessica Chastain but "Golden Globe winner" Jessica Chastain. It might seem strange to see an award-winning actress in a horror movie, but the trend of respected actors taking roles in horror movies is on the rise. Just last year, Oscar–nominated actor Ethan Hawke (Training Day) starred in supernatural horror-thriller Sinster while Golden Globe-nominated Rebecca Hall (Vicky Christina Barcelona) appeared in British ghost story movie The Awakening.
Of course, horror movies have historically been a place where actors often get their start. In fact, a surprising amount of Hollywood stars and Academy Award winners and nominees have started their careers in the horror genre, and, in fact, some are still working in the genre. check out the list >> Posted 01.18.13 by Ryan

Basically, it's still your grandfather's Lone Ranger.
The character of the Lone Ranger has appeared on a variety of media since his creation in 1933 — radio, movie serials and TV shows — but the origin usually remains the same. Originally a Texas Ranger named John Reid, an ambush by Butch Cavendish and his gang leaves Reid's fellow Rangers dead. Discovered by a Native American named Tonto, Reid is nursed back to health and assumes the mantle of the Lone Ranger so that Cavendish will still think him dead. According to the latest trailer, it looks like Disney's upcoming adaptation of The Lone Ranger is remaining faithful to the origin story, with the Lone Ranger (Armie Hammer) waking up to discover his future partner Tonto (Johnny Depp).all the latest trailers

"Hi, Ho, Silver!"...is not said in the trailer.
Disney's adaptation of The Lone Ranger has had a bumpy ride on its way to its 2013 release. First, the studio shut down production to bring down the movie's ballooning budget, but once production began, THR reported that director Gore Verbinski (the original Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy) quickly fell behind schedule and over its altered budget. The production also suffered the tragic loss of a crew member who passed away while preparing a water tank that was going to be used to shoot an underwater sequence.
At long last, audiences now have a chance to look at footage from the the movie, as Disney has finally released the first trailer for The Lone Ranger, the same one they surprisingly revealed at Comic-Con at the end of their panel. Starting with shots of trains, the trailer's voice-over is provided by Tom Wilkinson (The Kennedys), who plays railroad tycoon Latham Cole in the movie, and is concerned primarily with the invention of the railroad and the power that comes with controlling it. From there, we see brief shots of the Lone Ranger (Armie Hammer) and his partner Tonto (Johnny Depp), who takes over as the voice of the trailer to discuss why "good men must wear masks." trailers with heroes and villains

When it was released in May, director Tim Burton's adaptation of Dark Shadows didn't have a chance at the box office due to the juggernaut that was The Avengers. Mixed reviews didn't help, nor did the expectations that come with a Burton-Johnny Depp movie. The eighth collaboration between the director and actor, Dark Shadows struggled to connect with fans of the late 1960s-early 70s soap opera who didn't appreciate the joke-y tone of movie, nor did it please Burton's ardent fans, who have, understandably or not, grown disenchanted with some of the director's recent output. reelz: for movie recommendations

Johnny Depp is undoubtedly a huge movie star, but after the box office disappointment of Dark Shadows, Warner Bros. reportedly decided to slow down development on Depp's remake of The Thin Man. It probably didn't help that The Rum Diary was also a box office dud and that reports have surfaced that Depp's next movie The Lone Ranger is running over budget and requiring last minute rewrites. The Thin Man is one of a few projects Depp is developing with his Infinitum Nihil production company — another is an adaptation of 1970s ABC TV movie The Night Stalker and subsequent 1974-75 TV series Kolchak: The Night Stalker with director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) — but those projects will have to wait as Depp has agreed to work on Moonrise Kingdom director Wes Anderson's next movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Deadline reports that Depp has signed on to star in the movie, which will be Anderson's next directing project. The move is a smart one for Depp, as Anderson is coming off of the second-most financially successful movie of his career ($45 million worldwide so far in limited release). more about The Grand Budapest Hotel >> Posted 07.17.12 by Ryan
