CinemaCon 2013: Armie Hammer ‘It’s Been Fun’ Playing The Lone Ranger

ACCESSHOLLYWOOD.COM – Armie Hammer receives CinemaCon 2013’s “Male Star of Tomorrow Award” in Las Vegas where he chats with Access’ Billy Bush about how much “fun” he’s had playing and promoting “The Lone Ranger.” Also, he tells Billy co-star Johnny Depp is a great wingman.

‘The Lone Ranger’: New Japanese trailer

EW.COM – We’re not quite sure what the narrator is saying at the beginning (paging Japanese-speaking EW readers?), but this third trailer for Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger (in theaters July 3rd), proves again that action transcends language barriers.

For anyone who’s been keeping up with the other trailers, besides Helena Bonham Carter’s awesome leg gun, this new Japanese version doesn’t offer many new scenes, but it’s low on dialogue and bursting with intense imagery, explosions, falls, and Armie Hammer shots. It’s the perfect trailer for a summer blockbuster.

CinemaCon 2013: Armie Hammer to Be Named ‘Male Star of Tomorrow’

The star of the upcoming “The Lone Ranger” will be honored at this year’s convention.

HOLLYWOODREPORTER.COM – Armie Hammer will receive the “CinemaCon Male Star of Tomorrow Award” at this year’s convention. Managing director Mitch Neuhauser announced Wednesday that the award will be presented on April 18 at the “CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards” ceremony.

“Having already received acclaim for his notable supporting roles in such films as The Social Network, Hammer is poised to really break out this year with his starring role as the fictional icon of American culture, The Lone Ranger,” noted Neuhauser. “For this reason, we cannot think of another talented young actor more deserving of being this year’s ‘CinemaCon Male Star of Tomorrow.’

Hammer stars as the title character in Disney’s forthcoming The Lone Ranger, opposite Johnny Depp’s Native American warrior Tonto. The film tells of how John Reid, a man of the law, transforms into The Lone Ranger, and how Reid and Tonto must work together to fight for justice. The film, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski, is scheduled for release on July 3.

This year’s CinemaCon is set to run April 15-18 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

‘Lone Ranger’: New Trailer Reveals the Story Behind the Mask

Disney releases another preview of its long-awaited Western starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer.

HOLLYWOODREPORTER.COM – While Disney’s first trailer for The Lone Ranger set the scene, a second preview released Tuesday puts stars Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp front and center.

Following a dramatic 140- to 150-day shoot, which faced budget cuts and delays, audiences caught a first glimpse of the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced, Gore Verbinski-directed film in October when the first one-sheet and trailer debuted.

A second preview was unveiled by iTunes at the stroke of midnight, with Bruckheimer tweeting: “The new trailer is here! I hope everyone is as excited about it as I am. Tell me what you think.”

In the new clip, the Lone Ranger (Hammer) awakens from a nightmare atop a treacherous cliff, later to find Tonto (Depp), who is speaking with a horse. “Why am I alive?” Hammer questions.

“Eight men rode into canyon. I dug seven graves,” says Depp. “The horse says you are a spirit walker. A man who has been to the other side and returned. A man who cannot be killed in battle. Something very wrong with that horse.”

Watch below as Hammer puts on the iconic mask for the first time.

“People think you are dead,” says Depp. “Better to stay that way.”

The Lone Ranger opens nationwide July 3, 2013.

Twins at center at Facebook controversy speak out

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss are no strangers to the spotlight.

After waging a closely watched legal battle with Facebook Inc., the Greenwich natives and Olympic rowers know all too well what it’s like to be scrutinized in newspapers, blogs and books.

Now they’re preparing to see their story told once again — this time, on the big screen.

The upcoming David Fincher film “The Social Network” depicts the Winklevosses’ four-year legal dispute with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, a former Harvard University classmate who they say stole their idea for the popular social networking site.

The Winklevoss brothers sued Zuckerberg in 2004, saying he agreed to finish the computer code for their site, ConnectU, but repeatedly stalled and eventually created Facebook using their ideas. The lawsuit began to draw widespread media attention after Facebook was valued at $1 billion in a 2006 bid by Yahoo Inc. The legal dispute was settled in 2008 for $65 million in cash and Facebook shares, according to published reports.

That the controversial origins of Facebook, which is reported to have more than 500 million active users, would become the focus of a big-budget movie comes as little surprise to the twins.

“The whole controversy with Facebook has taken a life of its own,” Tyler
Winklevoss said in a recent phone interview in July from England, where the brothers are continuing their studies. “It almost seems like a logical progression. … We didn’t go from zero to 200 miles per hour overnight.”

The film, from a screenplay based on the book “The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, A Tale of Sex, Money, Genius, and Betrayal” by Ben Mezrich, stars Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake.

Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, who turned 29 on Saturday, are played by male model Josh Pence and actor Armie Hammer, respectively, with Hammer’s face superimposed on Pence’s body using CGI technology.

The movie will be released in theaters on Oct. 1.

The twin brothers say they have not seen the film yet, but have viewed the trailers and read the screenplay, which is heavily based on news articles, interviews and other public documents.

“I thought the trailer captured the controversy quite well,” Tyler said. “It’s obviously a dramatization to some extent. (But) the movie appears to be up to date with the journalistic record.”

Tyler said it was not until the filmmakers had finished shooting most of the scenes for “The Social Network” that he and his brother actually got to meet the actors who portrayed them.

The brothers, both Brunswick and Greenwich Country Day school graduates, who have been rowing since they were 15 years old, were U.S. national pairs champions in 2005 and 2007. They finished sixth in the men’s pairs final at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Whether the film, as a whole, is faithful to the brothers’ real-life story remains an open question.

The brothers say they have learned firsthand that there are often widely varying degrees of accuracy in the way print and online media outlets present their stories to audiences.

Hollywood is no exception.

“There’s obviously the reality, and there’s what people write and perceive,
and what their opinions are, and often there’s a gap there,” Tyler said. “We are used to that gap being big and small.”

Cameron hopes the movie accurately reflects a broader social dynamic between its characters — those who are guided by principle and integrity, versus those who view life as a zero-sum game, he said.

“If the movie is looking to reflect reality, then you have to ask yourself: How did I live my life?” Cameron said.

As long as the film is accurate, “I don’t think we have too much to be worried about.”

Either way, the brothers said they aren’t getting too hung up about the film.
This fall, they plan to finish a one-year MBA program at Christ Church college in Oxford, England. After that, they plan to continue training in the states for rowing competitions, in hopes of returning to London for the 2012 Olympics. They said their longer-term futures likely involve business.

“There are so many things I want to do right now, it would be foolish to confuse a movie as something more,” Tyler said. “Some parts are going to be true, others are going to be less true.

“At the end of the day, it’s a movie.”
