In anticipation of the extended sneak peek at The Lone Ranger airing during the Super Bowl XLVII pre show this Sunday, Walt Disney Studios has provided us with this brand new still featuring Tonto (Johnny Depp) not quite yet grasping the concept of personal space when it comes to the title character’s horse, Silver. Meanwhile, the not-yet-masked John Reid (Armie Hammer) lurks in the background, gun pointed at Tonto.

On what reportedly turned out to be the hottest day in New York City in more than thirty years, the cast and crew of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice from Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer Films (not to mention yours truly) braved the sun to celebrate the world premiere of the film earlier this week.
The event kicked off at the beginning of the carpet where New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, along with the film’s talent and the original Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Mickey Mouse, gathered to declare July 6 as Sorcerer’s Apprentice Day throughout the city. Then the stars began parading down the red and shadeless carpet to the New Amsterdam Theatre, where the screening was to be held. Unfortunately due to carpet position and the sun’s unwilligness to forgive, many of the invitees would eventually break away from the carpet and dash inside, so the opportunities for one poor Disney blogger were rare.
To that end, there were a couple of standouts. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer eventually made his way down the carpet, paying his regards to the press. Star and executive producer Nicolas Cage, however, was truly exceptional, not only responding to all, but answering questions at length, all the while waving to his adoring fans who were staked out across 42nd Street or simply driving by.
It was also very difficult not to be captivated by the lovely Teresa Palmer, who portrays love-interest Becky Barnes. Although one would never know it from her performances, Teresa is an Aussie and has a very heavy (but charming) accent to prove it. The children from the film — Jake Cherry, Peyton List and Robert Capron were also delightful.
After the screening of the movie, the night’s festivities moved on to Bryant Park where the stars of the film along with producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Jon Turtletaub conducted a brief Q&A session at an event open to all. Although One Republic — whose hit song Secrets is featured in the film – was expected to perform during the mini-concert, cited health reasons kept lead singer Ryan Tedder at bay. Instead, Hollywood Records recording artist Alpha Rev doubled-up on their performance, treating the crowd to an impressive show consisting of about six or seven songs.
Epilogue: I really ought to be a concert photographer.
