UPDATE: New Trailer For Rango Finally Lets Us Know What's Going On
So, it's finally arrived. After weeks of toy fish, gophers, and Fear and Loathing-esque posters, we actually get to find out what Gore Verbinski's Rango is all about.
Apple has premiered the first full-length trailer for the film - complete with actual characters and dialogue - and it still looks about 10 steps past weird... in a good way. Johnny Depp plays Rango, an Acapulco shirt-wearing pet chameleon who is abandoned by his family in the middle of the Mojave desert. Surrounded on all sides by nothingness, he finds himself in a world he has never been exposed to. Encountering giant toads and mariachi owls, avoiding predatory hawks and trying to figure out who he is, the little lizard has a lot on his plate and he doesn't seem to be handling the stress very well.
Check out the trailer below or in HD over at Apple.
UPDATE: When the poster came online yesterday I remarked how similar it was to the poster for Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas, a film that starred Johnny Depp as Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. Upon reviewing the trailer, guess who is driving the car that Rango flies in to? None other than the good doctor himself.
