5 Flares 5 Flares ×


The now Acad­emy Award-nominated “Rango,” from direc­tor Gore Verbin­ski and star­ring the voice of Johnny Depp, sad­dles up for a one-week lim­ited engage­ment at the ArcLight Hol­ly­wood begin­ning this Fri­day, Jan­u­ary 27.

The orig­i­nal ani­mated comedy-adventure from Para­mount Pic­tures and Nick­elodeon Movies, which takes movie­go­ers for a walk in the Wild West, was nom­i­nated Tues­day morn­ing for an Oscar for Best Ani­mated Fea­ture Film.

Rango is the win­ner of the National Board of Review and Crit­ics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Ani­mated Fea­ture, while top crit­ics’ groups around the United States — includ­ing Boston, Chicago, Los Ange­les, San Fran­cisco and Wash­ing­ton, D.C. — have declared it the best ani­mated film of 2011.

A chameleon liv­ing as an ordi­nary fam­ily pet, Rango dreams of being a fear­less hero and is chal­lenged to become just that when he inad­ver­tently becomes the sher­iff of a law­less desert town called Dirt.

Writ­ten by John Logan and directed by Gore Verbin­ski, Rango earned more than $230 mil­lion world­wide. The film also fea­tures the voices of Isla Fisher, Abi­gail Bres­lin, Alfred Molina, Bill Nighy, Ned Beatty, Harry Dean Stan­ton, Ray Win­stone and Tim­o­thy Olyphant.
