The Long Ranger
Yes, we can be snarky and dare we say even snooty sometimes, but the secret you might not know about the fine folks at The Playlist is that we like a good popcorn blockbuster just like anyone else (when done well). And you know what? Yesterday's trailer for "The Lone Ranger" completely sold us on the movie -- or at least, we're optimistic it's going to be some well executed entertainment. This writer tends to forget that the first "Pirates Of The Caribbean" was actually a whole lot of fun (we won't talk about the sequels) and if Gore Verbinski brings that vitality here, he's going to have a major winner on his hands.

The Lone Ranger, Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer
It seems like it just isn't blockbuster movie season without Johnny Depp wearing funny hats, clothing from Dickensian thrift shops and/or lots of makeup, but this summer he's back with almost all of the above in "The Lone Ranger." The quaint, black-and-white 1950s TV show has been brought to the 21st century with a soaring budget of over $200 million and a bag full of special effects. And now a brand-spanking new trailer has come over the horizon, promising both big time spectacle and Depp quirkiness in equally large servings.

So far, it seems Disney is determined to make sure you don't know that Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer are in "The Lone Ranger." Okay, that's not exactly true. We've had a couple of trailers so far, but in the stills department, not so much, and as you can see from the latest batch above and below, they're going with arty and epic over celebrity.

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.

In A Crowded Summer 2013 Blockbuster Season, Which Risky Films Will Be Hits & Which Will Flop?

2013 has claimed its first would-be-blockbuster casualty. This past weekend saw "Jack The Giant Slayer," Bryan Singer's long-delayed $200 million fairy tale movie, open to a decidedly underwhelming $28 million, putting it on the path to losing "John Carter"/"Battleship"/"Total Recall"-style sums of money. It was hardly a surprise (most people with half a brain saw this coming months ago), but it's another illustration that for every expensive film that proves to be a hit, there's at least one that fails entirely to connect with the audience that it needs.

Don't double dip that chip. The Super Bowl spots continue to come, and now Disney has unleashed their new trailer for "The Lone Ranger" in the hopes that after your nacho cheese hangover later, you'll remember to buy a ticket to the newest Johnny Depp wardrobe blockbuster.

The early months of the year are always a little bleak, cinematically speaking, as the last few weeks have demonstrated ("Gangster Squad," "Movie 43," "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" et al). And bright spots over the next few months are fairly sparse too, but we know for sure that there's some good news on the way, in the shape of Derek Cianfrance's "The Place Beyond The Pines." We were always looking forward to it, seeing as it was the follow-up to the director's excellent "Blue Valentine," and that it saw the filmmaker reteam with Ryan Gosling. And with Bradley Cooper, Ben Mendelsohn, Dane DeHaan, Emory Cohen, Eva Mendes, Rose Byrne and Ray Liotta also on board, our anticipation only increased.

The Delayed Films Of 2013: Why They Were Pushed Back & Which Ones Will You Be Seeing?

This Friday sees the release of "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters "starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton as the fairy tale brother/sister duo. The film shot in March 2011 (before Renner filmed either "The Avengers" or "The Bourne Legacy"), and was originally set to be released in March 2012, before Paramount pushed it back ten months to its current slot in the January wastelands. But 'Hansel & Gretel' is hardly the only case of a long-delayed film making it to theaters in 2013. For instance, "Gangster Squad" was pushed back from September 2012 to January 11th after the Aurora shootings, though it would have been a horrible film whatever time of year it was released. And the two are set to be followed by a fairly staggering twenty-five films from major studios that have already been pushed back somewhere between five and thirteen months, many of them accompanied by serious production troubles and well-publicized reshoots.

Jack White Exits ‘The Lone Ranger,’ Hans Zimmer Now Scoring The Film

Earlier this week, when the wild new trailer for Gore Verbinski’s big-screen “The Lone Ranger” premiered online, we noticed a curious credit – as the film’s composer, the trailer listed workhorse (and Disney favorite) Hans Zimmer instead of the previously announced Jack White. We didn’t want to jump the gun and announce White’s removal, since Zimmer has had a history of collaborating with other musicians (most recently with Rodrigo y Gabriela on "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"). But alas, our original inclination was correct – Jack White is off “The Lone Ranger,” and Hans Zimmer is on.
