The box office has been hurting in 2011, but as we inch closer to Summer blockbusters, the movie offerings are getting better and better. March brings out big stars like Matthew McConaughey and Matt Damon, along with Johnny Depp's kiddie flick and and a handful of action movies. Which one are you most excited about?
Isla Fisher and Abigail Breslin kept up their busy schedule of premieres and press for Rango today in London. The pair posed for pictures with some of the movie's quirky characters, but their leading man, Johnny Depp, wasn't along for the event. He did team up with the ladies last week, though, at the movie's LA debut. He was also on hand for a press conference just before the big night, where he chatted about his sex-symbol status and how his children feel about his career. He and his costar Isla are both parents to two kids, and we just got a first look at her adorable youngest daughter earlier this month. She's been away from home promoting the film, but has had support from her family, with her dad joining her on the red carpet in Berlin on Sunday.
Isla Fisher posed in a lacy dress at the Berlin premiere of Rango yesterday. Her costar Johnny Depp didn't join her on the red carpet, though she did have the film's director, Gore Verbinski, by her side. She and Johnny made a cute duo when they showed off the movie in LA last week after promoting together at the press junket. Isla's on the go until the animated feature hits theaters on March 4, but she still makes time for mom duty. We even got our first peek at Isla and Sacha's adorable younger daughter during a recent outing with Olive.
Johnny Depp and Isla Fisher were side by side at the LA premiere of Rango last night. The duo showed off their animated movie after promoting together over the weekend at a press junket, where Johnny talked about his love for making kids' movies. He took a quick break from work duties to enjoy the weather on Saturday and give us a glimpse of his hot self, which was on display again on the red carpet. Isla, in a bright blue Temperley dress, had the night off from mom duty for the event, though judging from the trailer, little Olive probably would have enjoyed the show.
Johnny Depp stepped out onto the balcony of the LA Four Seasons looking hot on Saturday — what a nice Valentine's Day treat! He took a quick break from chatting up his animated movie, Rango, at the weekend's press junket. We caught up with Johnny and costars Abigail Breslin and Isla Fisher at the event, where he shared about his sex-symbol status and his love for making kids movies. Attention was temporarily diverted from Johnny to surprise guest Justin Bieber, who was also staying at the hotel, when the pop star showed up in the middle of the interview! Johnny's been on the West Coast for the last month enjoying award season with a cameo at the Golden Globes and People's Choice Awards. He skipped out on last night's Grammys, but John Mayer was there channeling Johnny's signature look.
Johnny Depp got lots of laughs at the press conference for his new movie Rango in LA yesterday. The actor was joined by his costars, Abigail Breslin and Isla Fisher, as well as director Gore Verbinski at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills. Johnny plays the movie's title character, a pet lizard who is forced to save the day after a lie gets him in over his head. Johnny admitted that his own kids aren't all that interested in his career, and are far more into Family Guy and Justin Bieber. It turned out that Justin happened to be in the hotel, heard that Johnny mentioned him, and dropped by to say what a huge fan he is in the middle of the press conference! Johnny joked, "What am I going to tell my daughter?" Johnny, who was as gracious and funny as you might expect, also talked about tackling the challenge of playing a reptile and the reason he enjoys making movies for children. He said:

Depp voices the title character, a skittish chameleon struggling to survive in a desert of predators. We already watched the teaser this Summer, but this longer preview sheds light on the movie's storyline, as Rango stumbles on a Western town and becomes sheriff to protect it. My verdict: it's clever and a little dark, and it's fun seeing Depp's personality come through in a bug-eyed reptile. The film hits March 4, but watch the trailer when you read more
By now we're used to hearing different wacky permutations of Johnny Depp's voice, but I believe this is the first time we've heard it coming from an adorable animated lizard. He's voicing the title character in Rango, who is a strange chameleon in a strange land who's having some trouble blending in the scary desert.Depp's Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski is behind this movie, which also features the voices of Abigail Breslin, Timothy Olyphant, Isla Fisher, and Bill Nighy. Of course, the big draw is listening to Depp freak out about the birds of prey who want to eat him. Watch the cute preview when you read more
