Quentin Tarantino elaborates on that Lone Ranger choice; Says Batman is not interesting

The other day, Quentin Tarantino offered up his Top Ten of 2013- So Far . Many seemed rather perplexed by a certain inclusion. Of all the movies in 2013, why did THE LONE RANGER get a nod from Tarantino? Maybe because not everyone thought it was a total and complete turd. The interview comes from French weekly paper, Les Inrocks. IndieWire did their best to translate the...

Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer will end their partnership in 2014, but don't blame it on The Lone Ranger

An extremely profitable union has come to an end: The Wrap is reporting that Disney will not renew its first-look deal with mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer when it expires at the end of the year. Bruckheimer and Disney have made an ungodly amount of money together, but a few of Bruckheimer's most recent films have underperformed, with the most notable being July's THE LONE...

Mark Wahlberg jumps on the blame bandwagon in defense of The Lone Ranger

Everyone seems to be coming to the defense of THE LONE RANGER but for reasons outside of the quality of the movie itself. First, critics lambasted the film in advance of abysmal box office results. Then, Jerry Bruckheimer, Johnny Depp , Armie Hammer , and more came to the film's defense saying that it was the media's fault for dooming the film financially. Whether you believe it or...

The Lone Ranger team blames critics for why the film bombed in theaters

Oh boy, this could get ugly. A good chunk of the cast and crew for THE LONE RANGER ( Johnny Depp , Armie Hammer , director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer) were recently interviewed by Yahoo! Movies Uk & Ireland about their big summer flop, and they put almost all the blame on the critics as to why the movie bombed so hard in theaters. Hammer starts by saying...

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer thinks The Lone Ranger will be viewed as a "brave" film over time

This summer's THE LONE RANGER, much like Disney's JOHN CARTER of last year, was pronounced dead on arrival by audiences and panned by more than two-thirds of critics. However, there is also a band of resistance that has trumpeted the film a misunderstood suceess, one of which is producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Speaking at the TV Critics Association press tour to promote his new show, Hostages,...

Top 10 Westerns of the 21st Century

The western genre has been an American staple since the invention of movies. We love dressing up like cowboys and pretending to fight villains. In many ways, cowboys were the first superheroes.

Cowboys and Aliens! Check out these new featurettes from Pacific Rim and The Lone Ranger!

What, did I bring back some bad memories with that headline? While some folks are predicting a similar box office flop for THE LONE RANGER as the ill-fated COWBOYS AND ALIENS, I think there's much more optimism for Guillermo Del Toro 's PACIFIC RIM. Personally, I'll be seeing both, and while I may be one of the few that's excited for Gore Verbinski 's take on the legendary western...

"Spirit Platform" featurette for The Lone Ranger is not for those scared of heights

There's a moment in this featurette where one of the crewmembers says that director Gore Verbinski doesn't like to shoot on a blue screen. When asked why he isn't using a blue screen, Verbinski says, "I don't know how to do that," in a way that suggests he wouldn't even consider it. I dig that. Say what you will about the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN films,...

Ride into action in this new trailer for The Lone Ranger with Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp

It seems like THE LONE RANGER has got an uphill climb to win audiences over, as it faces off against the ruling comic book genre, animated kid's films, and high-concept comedies of the summer. The western genre has been a tough sell for a while and even though THE LONE RANGER has some deep roots in American culture, it may not be enough for modern audiences. However, I have faith...
