Trailer didn't grab me. I always find it funny on trailers how, well they are short anyway 2-3 minutes most of them and yet they make sure the first several several seconds are for the film logos and companies, you would think if they are selling the movie basically here they'd devote more time to the movie. That always chuckled me when some trailers do that. More times devoted to make sure you know each company name then the movie, lol razz

well it's called a "teaser" for a reason
LOL!

"Story by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio and Justin Haythe; Screenplay by Justin Haythe and Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio"? This movie joins Lethal Weapon 3 ("Story by Jeffrey Boam; Screenplay by Jeffrey Boam and Jeffrey Boam & Robert Mark Kamen") and Underdog ("Story by Joe Piscatella & Craig A. Williams and Adam Rifkin; Screenplay by Adam Rifkin and Joe Piscatella & Craig A. Williams") in the writing credits wing of the Redundancy Hall Of Fame.

I love the first Pirates movie but the 2nd and 3rd are terrible movies. Apart from being over long and badly written

That was a problem I had with the FIRST movie (as Leonard Maltin pointed out, there is no reason for it to be so long).

I don't know if this is supposed to be a western or an action film. Also, why wasn't Ryan Gosling considered for The Lone Ranger?

As for Kaminski, War Horse definitely was not desaturated and was actually a very beautifully shot movie.

I know it's just the trailer, but it seems like a lot of sound and fury, signifying..... (insert neutral-value integer here).

I can't imagine the situation that would drive me to ever see another Johnny Depp (looking like a freak) film.

I agree. Johnny Depp is just another oddball narcissist who is becoming an annoying presence fast. Between his shenanigans with fellow oddballer Marilyn Manson to his bohemian goofiness, I seem to have lost most of my interest in he and his schtick.

Despite my occasional defence of Depp elsewhere in the past, I'm getting pretty tired of him too. It's just not conceivable that someone by now would not have whispered in his ear, "Helloooo? Overexposure.....".

However, I must add that he was a scream in Gervais' "Life's Too Short". When he overturns the bowl of fruit... I was in stitches.

My suggestion to Depp: less money roles, more passion projects. He's too good of an actor to be wasting his time with Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides or Jack and Jill.

Meanwhile, it's easy to admire him with a project like The Rum Diary. There, he feels more at home with the material and you can tell that he cares dearly about it.

Those shots of Johnny Depp almost make it look like a parody. I don't know if its the make-up or the dead pan look. I want to laugh except I know its not a "comedy". Leaves me confused.

Well said. I completely agree.

It has the Green Hornet feel to it, another movie with a timid and not appealing lead.

Wow. Am I the only one who, based on the trailers at least, finds that this looks better than most of next year's mainstream genre stuff? This trailer at least looks watchable; trailers for After Earth, Oblivion, Epic, Oz: The Great and Powerful and Star Trek Into Darkness have, at best, left me cold. (What trailers am I forgetting?) Upstream Color and Iron Man 3 both look better than this, but on the spectrum of trailers for next year's offerings this is far from bottom of the pack, so far as I'm concerned.

In the first trailer, I noticed a lot of pictures of prostitutes. I wonder if people complained to Disney about that. Second trailer looks pretty good to me. I'm not thrilled with the music backing the trailer. I see hints of humor similar to Pirates of the Caribbean humor. I'm referring to the fun FIRST Pirates, not the lame sequels. Others may disagree, but I'm interested in this movie.

Well, just when I thought the new Star Trek movie looked to be as bad as bad could be, this new trailer for Lone Ranger proves me wrong.

Er... huh? It has to be one or the other? That's some pretty narrow delineation of genre parameters, I'd think (and anyway, aren't most "Westerns" also "action movies"?)...

I do think Gore Verbinski and Johnny Depp are both quite capable (Rango is deliriously fun), but I'll go along and say this movie doesn't grab me based on what I've seen. However, the AFOL in me does have an interest in it for the forthcoming LEGO sets based on it, which should be great parts packs, at least.

Wow. I didn't think I'd read about an AFOL here of all places.

Maybe next year when the Lego movie is released then there will be more AFOL talk smile
