Poster & Trailer: RANGO, an animated spaghetti western featuring a pet chameleon

Nobody can blame you if you've yet to hear about Rango (March, Paramount) - the animated outing from director Gore Verbinski (Pirates of The Caribbean) featuring the voice talents of Johnny Depp which has been flying under the radar for the past year or so. Last month, a a cryptic teaser teaser trailer was released showing nothing but a (wind-up?) goldfish slowly making its way across the road. (It felt weird just typing that sentence). The attempt to get kids interested in a movie aimed for them by confusing them, resulted in nothing but sheer bewilderment from the internet community but this full length trailer is much more appealing and should go down well. For the first time, an animated movie outside of Pixar, looks like heaps of fun. According to /Film, Verbinski has said that the €œcutting-edge€ animation from Industrial Light & Magic allowed him to €œcapture and translate every aspect of Johnny€™s performance, using it to drive the computer-generated character in a way that has yet to be seen in an animated feature.€ Big names supporting includes Abigail Breslin, Isla Fisher, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighy, Timothy Olyphant, Harry Dean Stanton, and Ray Winstone. The trailer looks pretty impressive and I can see why director Verbinski is happy about the animation; it looks fantastic. Not to mention, Johnny Depp's voicework is as good as ever, so I'm pretty much in hype-mode right now for this. And correct me if I'm wrong, but the chameleon seems to be heavily inspired by Depp's own character in Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas. You can check out the trailer in all it's HD glory HERE.
