Paramount brings Rango back to theaters following Oscar nomination
Following its nomination for Best Animated Feature Film, Paramount has decided to re-release RANGO to theaters for a one-week engagement. Sadly, it's only in one theater, the ArcLight Hollywood in LA.
Wish it were a little wider, as I missed it the first time around. But of course, it's widely available on dvd, blu and digital download right now.
The incomparable Johnny Depp voices Rango, a chameleon living as an ordinary family pet who dreams of being a fearless hero and is challenged to become just that when he inadvertently becomes the sheriff of a lawless desert town called Dirt. Story by John Logan Gore Verbinski and James Ward Byrkit, Written by John Logan, Directed by Gore Verbinski, the visionary behind the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Rango delighted audiences of all ages, earning more than $230 million worldwide. The film also features the voices of Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighy, Ned Beatty, Harry Dean Stanton, Ray Winstone and Timothy Olyphant.
Since RANGO is going against PUSS IN BOOTS, A CAT IN PARIS, CHICO & RITA and KUNG FU PANDA 2, I'd say it was a shoe-in for the win, but with TOY STORY 3's upset over the far superior HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON last year all bets are off.
