Trailer Park: 'Rango' and 'Paranormal Activity 2'
Good news for Johnny Depp fans, the a-list superstar has lent his voice to a new children's movie that just might be fun for the whole family. The movie is called "Rango" and tells the tale of a chameleon with a big personality and even bigger identity crisis. The unlikely protagonist soon finds himself in uncharted waters; saving a town in dire need of a hero. Gore Verbinski, who directed all three of Depp's "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, also directs this film. "Rango" isn't in theaters until next March, but you can catch the trailer now!
Trailer Park: “The Smurfs,” “Middle Men,” and “Ramona and Beezus”
Every now and then an upcoming movie will release a trailer so far in advance of the film’s release, it becomes extremely clear that there really wasn’t much of a finished product to pull from.
That's the case for the much hyped live action version of the hit cartoon series, “The Smurfs.” The film is not due out in theaters until the middle of 2011, so really, can you expect much more than a little tease? I have to admit, though, I was a huge fan of the animated TV show, and seeing even a glimpse of the little blue crew caused all sorts of nostalgic feelings to rush back. Does this teaser trailer do anything for you?
A movie with a much closer release date is “Middle Men,”which is set to hit the big screen on August 6.
