    Not sure if he showed up in the trailers or any of the stills, but I was wondering if Scout was there. (I know probably not important to many)

    Apparently he will have a toy...

    Also I like the more blue vested bandanna wearing Ranger look, somewhat a throwback to the classic but probably not in the movie though.

    Yeah, it looks fun. You have to give Verbinski props in regards to his directing ability, he tries to give everything that old school adventure feel.

    I prefer that look too. But isn't the Lone Ranger a little too short in these photos, scale wise? How tall is Johnny Depp? Armie Hammer is 6'5" but here he doesn't look that much taller than Tonto.

    This may be about as good as Wild, Wild West.

    It's really a career-defining film for Kevin Kline.

    He deserves life time achievement award for his work in that film.

    People can ***** about it all they want, but I love Depp's look as Tonto.

    Actually, scratch that, I could do without the bird. But other than that... :up:

    So what are the predictions here for this flick at this point from what we've seen? Bomb or blockbuster?

    I'd think this would be the type of film that would do well internationally to make up for a lackluster domestic take but western themed films have never been very succesfull overseas and the lone ranger property is no where near as well known overseas as well i believe?

    I don't have much of a problem with the look either. Really the only odd thing is the bird. The paint is something you would find on a native american.

    Its seems people are just tiring of zany Depp. In this case zany Depp fits the material on screen and zany Depp still makes me laugh so I'm perfectly fine with it.

    I don't think this will be a John Carter. Lone Ranger is still pretty well known to most people, especially those that grew up with it, so they'll go see it on that alone.

    I didn't see the TV spot but I figured there was one since it trended on Twitter.
