While superheros will once again dominate the summer season, Disney is hoping that audiences will want to try something a little bit different. Granted, it's a still a movie with Johnny Depp wearing lots of feathers and headgear, but it's in a genre that has traditionally had a mixed track record: the western. However, hoping to tap nostalgia nuts and those looking for a lotta bang for their buck, "The Lone Ranger" is riding over the horizon.

Ten years ago, the first trailers were appearing for a hopeful big summer blockbuster that many thought was destined for disaster. The movie would be taking on a genre that had long since led to nothing but flops, starring some relative unknowns backed up by quirky character actor Johnny Depp, and would be based on source material that raised many an eyebrow. But the summer of 2003 saw "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl" become a monster hit, launching one of the biggest modern-day franchises, stretching to four movies to date, and turning Depp from beloved oddball to global megastar.

If last year's "Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" proved anything, it's that perhaps Gore Verbinski had got a rough ride. The second and third movies of the Disney mega-franchise may have been bloated, indulgent and sometimes uninvolving, but they looked like masterpieces compared to Rob Marshall's fourth installment, which lacked the inventiveness, weirdness and... well, competent directing of Verbinski's original trilogy. And let's not forget that the first film remains one of the best summer blockbusters of the 21st century so far.

Well, you can't blame Disney for at least trying. Last year, already sensing that "John Carter" was going to be a costly disaster (which it turned out to be), Disney began tightening the reins on the other big expensive tentpole movie they had in development, "The Lone Ranger." And they had reason to be worried. Originally budgeted at $250 million, the studio forced director Gore Verbinksi and producer Jerry Bruckheimer to scale it back to $215 million, with some of the more razzle dazzle setpieces and sequences either cut out completely or reconfigured, and principal cast and filmmakers all taking pay cuts (though with more promised if the movie was a hit). Once the studio was happy, the film was back on track, but it looks like Verbinski's reputation that he earned on the 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' films for sending costs soaring is being lived up to again.

What do we know about the casting of Finnick Odair in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"? That none of the names mentioned or rumored so far have panned out. Robert Pattinson was the first to to kibosh rumors about his potential involvement, while Taylor Kitsch followed suit not long after. And it seems none of the names, including Armie Hammer and Garrett Hedlund, are in contention at this point.
