The Lone Ranger

Batman and The Lone Ranger were my two childhood faves. Christopher Nolan surpassed my expectations with the former, and I’m trepidatious over what Gore Verbinski will do with the latter. From the trailer, there are already a couple of things against it: Helena Bonham Carter, for instance, who’s just about my worst-worst-worst. And Johnny Depp as a Native American (what, Adam Beach wasn’t available? or they preferred JD’s box office clout and horrific overacting?) On the plus side, Armie Hammer? It looks like Moulin Rouge meets 4.10 to Yuma – no bad thing. Lone Ranger filmed in Moab, Utah, and in New Mexico, and in a car park in California. (glam)
