“In The Elements” Featurette & “White Horse” TV Spot For ‘The Lone Ranger’ – Starring Johnny Depp & Armie Hammer
With the release of the film on the horizon, Walt Disney Pictures has set loose this latest behind-the-scenes featurette and TV spot for ‘The Lone Ranger.’ A top-notch cast has been assembled for the film, 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.

First Trailer For Ridley Scott’s ‘The Counsellor’ – Starring Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt & Javier Bardem
This first look has arrived online for Ridley Scott’s thriller ‘The Counsellor,’ in the form of a Russian teaser trailer (I’ll post the English version when it becomes available). [UPDATED] ‘The Counsellor’ features a stellar cast in Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Dean Norris, Rosie Perez, John Leguizamo, Natalie Dormer and Goran Visnjic. The story for ‘The Counselor’ is said to follow a lawyer, simply named The Counsellor (Fassbender), who gets embroiled in the drug trade and ends up fighting for his life. Pitt is playing Westray, who helps Fassbender’s lawyer get hold of a $20 million stash of cocaine. Bardem is taking the part of Reiner, a criminal who brings The Counselor into the drugs trade.
The screenplay for the film comes from one of my favorite authors, Cormac McCarthy, whose critically acclaimed books have been adapted into ‘No Country for Old Men,’ ‘The Road,’ and ‘All The Pretty Horses.’ ‘The Councelor’ is the Pulitzer Prize-winning authors first screenplay. Insiders are describing it as “No Country For Old Men on steroids.” Producer Steve Schwartz has said the following about the ‘The Counselor’: “Since McCarthy himself wrote the script, we get his own muscular prose directly, with its sexual obsessions. It’s a masculine world into which, unusually, two women intrude to play leading roles. McCarthy’s wit and humor in the dialogue make the nightmare even scarier. This may be one of McCarthy’s most disturbing and powerful works.” ‘The Counsellor’ is set for October 25th.
Warner Bros Pictures has unleashed this latest trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming action-adventure movie, ‘Pacific Rim.’ Set for a July 12th 2D and 3D release, ’Pacific Rim’ is set in 2025, the 12th year of a war against giant malevolent alien creatures who reside in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. To combat its annihilation, the planet must band together and use highly advanced weapons technology to eradicate the growing threat. Undoubtedly one of my most anticipated movies of 2013, ‘Pacific Rim’ boasts a stellar cast of Idris Elba, Charlie Hunnam, Rob Kazinsky, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Willem Dafoe, Ron Perlman and Max Martini.
From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure “Pacific Rim.” When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures has unveiled this new behind-the-scenes featurette for ‘Man of Steel,’ centering on Hans Zimmer creating the drums for the film’s soundtrack. Some of the famed musicians brought on-board by Zimmer to record the percussion sessions included the likes of Matt Chamberlain, Sheila E., Josh Freeze, Pharrell Williams, Danny Carey, John JR Robinson, Jason Bonham, Satnam Ramgotra, Toss Panos and Jim Keltner.
Hans Zimmer previously worked with Warner, Legendary and DC Comics on Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy: ‘Batman Begins,’ ‘The Dark Knight’ and last summers ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’ Zimmer also worked with Nolan, who’s co-producing ‘Man of Steel,’ on ‘Inception,’ for which he received an Oscar nomination. To date the composer has been nominated for nine Oscars and previously won for Disney’s ‘The Lion King.’ ‘Man of Steel’ marks the first Zack Snyder-directed film on which the helmer hasn’t worked with composer Tyler Bates, who scored ‘Dawn of the Dead,’ ’300,’ ‘Watchmen’ and ‘Sucker Punch.’
