Trip Out On This ‘Rango’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/trip-out-on-this-rango-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/trip-out-on-this-rango-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I recently posted a faaaaar out teaser for Rango which turned out to be a teaser for the website. Now Paramount has released the official trailer. The film stars Johnny Depp as a Hunter S. Thompson look-a-like chameleon with an identity crisis. The trailer has me just as baffled as the Inception trailer. Screenwriter John Logan might have been tripping off computer duster whippets while pounding away at this adventure. Ideas don't just come out on their own, right John? **Whoosh of air** Rango is directed by Gore Verbinski, who did the awesome Mousehunt, as well as those Caribbean Pirates movies. Befriending and/or beguiling Depp in the film are Isla Fisher, Alfred Molina, Timothy Olyphant, and Bill Nighy. Rango scampers into theaters March 18, 2011. Check out the trailer after the jump...

Trip Out On This ‘Rango’ Teaser http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/trip-out-on-this-rango-teaser/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/trip-out-on-this-rango-teaser/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Yeah, uhhhhhh, here's the teaser trailer for Rango? Directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Ring), it's tells the story of a chameleon with an identity crisis. I guess he's a fish in this teaser that does more confusing than teasing. However, the best women of the night have both down to such an art that a John usually can't tell the difference. So maybe this teaser is just like a skilled prostitute. Or Hunter S. Thompson's wet dream. The film stars the voice talents of Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Bill Nighy, Stephen Root, Ray Winstone, Beth Grant, Ned Beatty, Harry Dean Stanton, and Alfred Molina. But you won't hear any of them in the teaser. That's the tease. Are you titillated? Check out the teaser for Rango after the jump.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
PG-13, 116m., 2010
Cast: Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley and Alfred Molina
Directed by Mike Newell
Screenplay by Boaz Yakin, Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard based upon the video game created by Jordan Mechner
 
Jake Gyllenhaal and the cast of the Royal Shakespeare company imprison themselves in a horrible sandstorm of a movie in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
 
Mega-Producer Jerry Bruckheimer brings us another one of his lackluster epic adventures, this time adapted from the popular 1989 video game of the same name, where a young street kid turned warrior named Dastan, (ah-hem “Destiny” get it?) played by Gyllenhaal, in taken into the world of kings, golden robes and military raids, where he is the chosen son of Persia, until his father is killed in a coup-de’ta by his brother Nazim (Ben Kingsley, at his evil-pointed beard worst) for a special sand sword that can turn back time, beheld by Princess Taima (Gemma Arterton).
 
From there the plot, or lack of one, in Prince of Persia makes you wish that the Sand of Time Sword can give you the two hours back. The chemistry between leads Gyllenhaal and Arterton disappears in the wind as the CGI sands and palaces become straining on the eyes.
 
Gyllenhaa,l laced with black eyeliner and straggled hair, join the league of  actors, included Colin Farrell, Brad Pitt, Jared Leto, Eric Bana, who starred in disappointing sword and sandal epics. Gyllenhaal is too good for this kind of movie, where his awkwardly weighted shoulders and deer in the headlights expression cannot surpass the dull adventurous hero character of Dastan.
 
Alfred Molina’s mischievous grin and Arterton’s heaving tanned chest are the only things to clear the sand from your eyes and make this piece of dreck watchable. Molina playing Sheik Amar, a half Jack Sparrow/half desert  bubbling conman, has much humor and character interest to spare. Producer Bruckheimer interjects his current tea partier slant into this character, and Amar spits and howls about the country’s high taxes, which no matter what your personal politics will make you have a good belly laugh or two.
 
As for Arterton’s heaving tanned chest: this is where her talent lies for this movie. With Quantum of Solace and this performance, the model turned actress shows to be good British eye candy for an audience of teenage males, but is yet to be determined as a strong Keira Knightley or Kate Winslet type of a actress.
 
Director Mike Newell of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Donnie Brasco fame, directs this movie as a director for hire job. The action and  scenes of sparse dialogue have no consistency or energy. Newell seems to have let producer Bruckheimer take over the movie and give it his standard wham-bam-thank-you-mama style of shooting, editing and overblown special effects.
 
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
is one of the worst summer going experiences to hit the big screen since Terminator: Salvation.
 
Grade: D-
