Rango Synopsis


From the director of The Pirates of the Caribbean comes Rango, featuring Johnny Depp in an original animated comedy-adventure that takes moviegoers for a hilarious and heartfelt walk in the Wild West. The story follows the comical, transformative journey of Rango (Depp), a sheltered chameleon living as an ordinary family pet, while facing a major identity crisis. After all, how high can you aim when your whole purpose in life is to blend in? When Rango accidentally winds up in the gritty, gun-slinging town of Dirt - a lawless outpost populated by the desert's most wily and whimsical creatures - the less-than-courageous lizard suddenly finds he stands out. Welcomed as the last hope the town has been waiting for, new Sheriff Rango is forced to play his new role to the hilt . . . until, in a blaze of action-packed situations and encounters with outrageous characters, Rango starts to become the hero he once only pretended to be. With a cast that includes Depp, Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighy, Harry Dean Stanton, Ray Winstone and Timothy Olyphant as the Spirit of the West, Rango is an exciting new twist on the classic Western legend of the outsider who saves a town - and himself in the process.

Fraggle Rock Movie Gets Two Writers Fraggle Rock Movie Gets Two Writers
One of my earliest TV-related memories is being allowed to stay up a little bit past bedtime to watch the series premiere of Fraggle Rock on HBO. The hugeness of getting an extension on bedtime for the sake of a TV show is likely the reason why I can vividly remember sitting in front of the television to watch a new type of Muppet show make its U.S. debut.

As both a film critic and reporter, I have to sit through a lot of terrible movies. This year I spent hours of my life watching movies like New Year’s Eve, Spy Kids: All The Time in the World, Abduction and Waiting For Forever. But it’s the good movies that make it all worth it, and this year there were some truly brilliant films in release. But among those great titles, what were my favorites? Well…

Paramount Launches In-House Animation To Replace DreamWorks Paramount Launches In-House Animation To Replace DreamWorks
Word is that DreamWorks is leaving to look for a better deal. That would leave Paramount Pictures without any animated movies, so they’re solving the problem with a sort of do it yourself attitude that’s worthy of admiration. They’re starting their own animation division.

Weekend Box Office: Rango Rocks, The 80s Don't Weekend Box Office: Rango Rocks, The 80s Don't
This weekend was a good one for cartoon chameleons, not so much for fans of the 80s. Computer animated Rango banked $38 million for an easy number one. While that's only a start against its $135 million budget, it's a far better turn out than that 80s movie enjoyed. Topher Grace's Take Me Home Tonight only managed to pull in $3.5 million officially giving it the lowest opening for a wide release film for the year so far. The debut was so weak, it didn't even make the top ten, opening at eleventh place just behind month-old Justin Bieber: Never Say Never.

Exclusive Interview: Rango Director Gore Verbinski Exclusive Interview: Rango Director Gore Verbinski
Reteaming the director with star Johnny Depp for the fourth time, the new film is Verbinski’s first venture into full-blown animation, but it fits him like a glove. As a piece of art, I make no hesitation in calling it one of the most beautiful animated films I have ever seen and it’s so incredibly bizarre that it keeps you engaged from beginning to end.

Rango Rides In Another Rocking Clip Rango Rides In Another Rocking Clip
Last night we brought you three new clips from Rango, and because this movie is just too strange not to want more, now we’ve got another one. This clip has a far more musical vibe. It’s a longer look at the musical stylings of the all-bird band you may have seen in the trailer. They’re more than just a bunch of desert mariachi’s one of them really knows how to rock an electric guitar.

What does Rango have in common with the more terrible than anyone could have imagined road trip comedy Due Date? Jokes involving a dead father’s ashes. We have three clips from Rango for you below and yeah, at least one of them contains a joke about accidentally eating a dead relative’s ashes. The difference though, is that in Rango it’s just an aside, wheras Due Date that joke was literally just about the only thing it had going for it. The early buzz on Rango has been pretty good.
