It's Johnny Depp the chameleon in this character poster for Rango

06.28.2010

Gore Verbinski has been teasing his first animated feature, RANGO.

The first glimpse we got into the movie was a video of a giant wind-up goldfish crossing the road. Insert obvious joke here.

On top of that there was a very short plot synopsis, "The story of a chameleon with an identity crisis".

Well now the chameleon, whom is also the movies title character is being unveiled in this character poster. Immediately I think that Rango is the chameleon version of Hunter S. Thompson doing some FEAR AND LOATHING...You've got a desert background, odd ball face, Hawaiian shirt, and the voice of Johnny Depp. Maybe it's a silly comparison, but I'm still amused.

Check out the poster below and click to see the chameleon in hi-res.

Looks fake....

That poster and the concept are so out in left field that I figured it was just fan art or something.

Johnny Depp IS a Chameleon...*hehe*..*hehe*

This is cool in so many ways. Casting Johnny as a chameleon...it's like casting him as himself, in animal form, get what I mean? How many times has Depp been called a chameleon for slipping into the skin of his characters? And how "the chameleon" plays a "chameleon". Maybe I'm the only one who finds this ticklishly amusing. And maybe it's because I'm kinda' sleepy at the moment. Chameleon...*hehe*

Pretty obvious allusion to Fear and Loathing. And I like it.

Curious

The teaser was very strange, this poster is excellent (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, indeed), and the website is absolutely AWESOME!

I can't stop playing guitar with the owl and teasing the rock/frog.

Terribly genreic and stpid, because if it weren't Depp doing the voice, then this poster wouldn't be funny, and holy shit, do I hate things like that!

Brilliant. Great teaser. Some good CGi. Whatever it is i'm interested. That poster is fantastic. I wonder if they're even going to pretend this has nothing to do with Fear and Loathing.

I have the F&L poster in question in my room so....that automatically came to mind. I was skeptical, but based on this poster alone. AWESOME. All it needs is Benicio del Toro as some sort of fat, furry creature and a white rabbit, and I'd be first in line. F&L with an all-animal cast....that'd be fucking awesome.

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is the first thing that comes to mind. That chameleon looks cracked out.

Whoa this movie literally came out of nowhere and looks amazing already. Verbinski is the boss and Depp is the man, how could this go wrong?
