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, Comic-Con is done for another year. The San Diego Conference Center is currently getting a thorough hosing down, hungover cos-players have done their awkward walks of shame, and film press are returning to their various corners of the world longing, like ourselves, to watch and write about something difficult, European and subtitled.

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.

You've just seen 20th Century Fox start to fill their 2014 slate and make some 2013 release date moves as well. Dreamworks & Disney's Steven Spielberg collaboration "Robopocalypse" just got pushed back an entire year (it hasn't started shooting yet) and now it's time for the Buena Vista/Disney mothership to make some adjustments of their own.

The filmmakers behind "The Lone Ranger" haven't been wasting any time in getting the word out that this won't just be a standard reboot of the show your Dad falls asleep watching reruns of on the couch at 2 a.m. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer tweeted out the first look at Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer over a month ago, and the cast hasn't been camera shy with people dropping by the set either. But this is perhaps the biggest indication that it will be a departure from the television staple.

Can opinions be changed by a single image? That might be pushing it just a bit, but in the case of "The Lone Ranger," the adaptation of the ancient, wholesome western TV show, we have to say we like what we see.
