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. ...

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....

We have three clips from Rango for you below and yeah, at least one of them contains a joke about accidentally eating a dead relativeís ashes. The difference though, is that in Rango itís 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. ...
