Disney’s The Lone Ranger is set in the old west, so naturally trains are a big part of it – the completion of a significant portion of the continental railway is one the film’s key plot points. What isn’t apparent onscreen, though, is that the filmmakers had to build their trains and lay their own track. Check out the video above to see that story – then follow the jump to watch a featurette on the film’s story & characters.
In a video interview with Armie Hammer, the Australian interviewer right.described The Lone Ranger as ‘the craziest movie of the year!
That Armie Hammer is a good looking, TALL drink of water! During a recent press conference for The Lone Ranger I asked him how he prepared for The Lone Ranger and what is like to take on such an iconic role.
The Lone Ranger is one of those movies that could be either a spectacular success or a mind-boggling failure. The trailers – including the newest one (follow the jump to view) – look great, but trailers can lie. As a Lone Ranger fan since the original TV series, I’m hoping for the spectacular success – but I’m still crossing my fingers.
Here’s hoping The Lone Ranger can bring dusters back – or at least not kill them off for another generation…
The jury may still be out as to whether Gore Verbonski’s The Lone Ranger will do for westerns what his Pirates of the Caribbean did for pirate movies, but it has to said: it’s gonna look cool!
Four more character posters follow the jump.
The first of this year’s two takes on Snow White, Mirror Mirror is a sumptuous visual feast – the trademark of director Tarsem Singh – with enough laughs, action and romance to make it worth a trip to your local multiplex.
Remember that Lone Ranger movie that Disney de-greenlighted because of budgetary concerns – and was restructured to fit their requirements? Well, it’s being filmed as we speak – and we have our first look at Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in the lead roles.
Tagline: From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski comes Disney/Bruckheimer Films’ THE LONE RANGER. Tonto (Johnny Depp), a spirit warrior on a personal quest, joins forces in a fight for justice with John Reid (Armie Hammer), a lawman who has become a masked avenger.
THE LONE RANGER will be released in May 2013.
It’s a tale of sound and fury; friendship betrayed; money and the internet. The Social Network may be the story of how Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook, but it has Shakespearean range and moves like a Jason Bourne movie. Directed by David Fincher and written by Aaron Sorkin, the film is also practically littered with brilliant performances – and the DVD release gives them all their due.
