Fresh Footage Showcased In New ‘The Lone Ranger’ International Trailer – Starring Johnny Depp & Armie Hammer
Following yesterday’s release of the new US trailer for ‘The Lone Ranger,’ Disney has set loose this latest international trailer for the action-adventure film. A first-rate cast has been assembled for the ‘The Lone Ranger,’ with Armie Hammer (The Social Network) taking on the role of the titular character, Johnny Depp playing Tonto, and the likes of Ruth Wilson, William Fichtner, Helena Bonham Carter, James Badge Dale, Barry Pepper, Tom Wilkinson and James Frain co-starring. The film, which takes place in 1869, is directed by Gore Verbinski for Walt Disney Pictures/Jerry Bruckheimer Films. ‘The Lone Ranger’ marks Verbrinski and Depp’s fifth collaboration after the first trio of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movies and the Oscar-winning ‘Rango.’
The film is described as “a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought tolife through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.” ‘The Lone Ranger’ has been pencilled in for a July 3rd release in the US and a August 9th release in the UK. Check out the production notes and official synopsis for ‘The Lone Ranger’ below.
Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled these two new pics from ‘The Hangover Part III,’ the third installment in Todd Phillips’ record-breaking comedy franchise. Scheduled for release on May 23rd in the UK and May 24th in the US, Phillips wrote the screenplay for ‘The Hangover Part III’ with Craig Mazin, who also collaborated with him on the screenplay for ‘The Hangover Part II.’ The brief synopsis for ‘The Hangover Part III’ is as follows: “This time, there’s no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off.”
For the third and (said to be) final adventure, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Bartha are reprising their roles of Phil, Stu, Alan and Doug, collectively known to moviegoers as “the Wolfpack.” Returning to the ensemble are Ken Jeong, Heather Graham, Jeffrey Tambor and, as the guys’ long-suffering wives, Gillian Vigman, Sasha Barrese and Jamie Chung. John Goodman joins the cast as well.
This is…. different. Having announced plans in early April for ‘Transformers 4′ to be a Chinese co-production involving the inclusion of some Chinese content, Paramount Pictures has now gone one step further in shaping the project along Chinese lines – by casting its Chinese roles through a reality television show, one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the country. Launched at a press conference in Beijing this morning, the ‘Transformers 4 Chinese Actor Talent Search’ will be a new talent competition television show in which the four winners – two with professional acting experience, two without – will be granted roles in the next entry of the franchise. The show is set to commence broadcast in China in June, with a panel of judges comprising Sid Ganis, the former head of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences and the current chairman of Jiaflix; the film’s producer Lorenzo DiBonaventura and casting director Denise Chamian; Paramount’s marketing and distribution chief Megan Colligan.
The film’s Chinese backers will be represented by Jia Qi, deputy director of the film’s Chinese co-producers China Movie Channel; and Liang Longfei, vice-president of m1905, the channel’s portal through which contestants (who need to be over 18) can register for the show. Producers said the four winning contestants will join “a number of talented Chinese actors and actresses” in ‘Transformers 4.’ The third film in the franchise, Transformer: Dark of the Moon,’ generated $165 million in China, and stands fourth in the country’s overall box-office rankings behind ‘Avatar,’ ‘Lost in Thailand’ and ‘Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons.’
