Yahoo Movies has today posted the full theatrical trailer for Isla’s upcoming animated project Rango! While we don’t actually hear Isla speak, there’s a few shots of a red-headed creature in a blue dress throughout the trailer who at one point Rango refers to as Nora (?), and I’d say it’s a safe bet that that’s Isla character 😉 View the embedded trailer below, or head on over to Yahoo Movies to view it in HD.
I’ve posted a short review/comment on the trailer from the always excellent Cinema Blend. Let’s hope Rango is a hit for Miss Isla! What are your thoughts on the trailer?
As well as that, 2 new posters for the movie has been released which you can view just below.
While most of the marketing campaign has focused on the Hawaiian-shirt-wearing chameleon Rango and the slightly surreal world that surrounds him (including the teaser poster that hit yesterday), the trailer puts a little more emphasis on the residents of the frontier town Dirt, all of them lizards and moles and other desert creatures. Far more than just some surrealist journey across the desert with Johnny Depp voicing a chameleon, Rango seems to be more like an old-fashioned Western about building society, standing up for what’s right and learning to get along with the people around you. Oh, and it also looks really funny and has some burp jokes– it’s a Nickelodeon-produced movie after all.
Not all of the jokes hit that well in the trailer, but having seen that early barroom scene where he burps fire in its entirety, I have a feeling they all work better in context. I’m excited for Rango not just because it looks genuinely original in a world plagued by reboots and sequels (hello, Yogi Bear), but because this trailer looks like it’ll deliver on its promise.
