The Lone Ranger: There’s surprisingly little of the title character in this first trailer for the much-anticipated movie. Instead we get a little of Johnny Depp as Tonto and lots of sinister sounding narration that hints at something to do with the building of the railroad through the old west.

The Comedy: Despite featuring the stars of Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie this doesn’t appear to be a laugh-a-minute story. Instead, based on this trailer, it’s a fascinating dark comedy about aimless hipsters refusing to grow up and be part of society.

Identity Thief: Jason Bateman stars as a man who’s identity is stolen and decides to get revenge. So he tracks down the deceptively harmless looking perpetrator (Bridesmaid’s Melissa McCarthy) and, apparently, gets punched in the face. This looks like a great opportunity for these two great comedians to play off each other.
