Rango Trailer/Synopsis

Rango 2-25-2011

Directed by Gore Verbinski ( The Weather Man, POTC ) voice cast starring Johnny Depp as Rango, also with Isla Fisher, Abagail Breslin, Bill Nighy, Harry Dean Stanton, Alfred Molina, Ray Winstone, Steven Root, Timothy Olyphant, Ned Beatty.

In the film, Rango is a pet chameleon who lives in a terrarium. He has long thought himself a hero, but then finds himself removed from his contemporary American southwest surroundings and ending up in an Old West town called Dirt, which is populated by various desert critters garbed like characters out of a spaghetti western. Rango soon becomes the town lawman, an occupation in Dirt that, judging from the tombstones in the local cemetery, doesn't allow for a very long lifespan. At a certain point in the narrative, Rango will come to question everything about himself.

Many have noted that the film's main character and setting bear a strong resemblance to those in Hunter S. Thompson and Terry Gilliam's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Indeed, a CGI version of Thompson makes a brief cameo in the film's trailer.

Oscar chances- Quite possible in the animation category as it has a very popular A list actor voicing Rango.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
