Russell Brand, Helen Mirren and Greta Gerwig star in this comedy, a remake of a 1981 film of the same name that had Dudley Moore, John Gielgud and Liza Minnelli in the corresponding roles. Arthur (Brand) is a billionaire playboy who drinks way too much, and his mom, who controls the purse strings, threatens to cut off his money if he doesn't marry Susan (Jennifer Garner). But Arthur has fallen for Naomi (Gerwig), a tour guide with a sunny personality. Mirren plays Arthur's former nanny and current confidante. Also in the movie are Geraldine James, Nick Nolte and Luis Guzmán.
The first animated film from Industrial Light and Magic, this is a comedy Western. The hero is a pet chameleon (voice of Johnny Depp), who accidentally ends up stranded in a desert. He meets an iguana (voice of Isla Fisher), who leads him to the town of Dirt, populated by desert critters. The mayor (voice of Ned Beatty) is a turtle, and the villain is a rattlesnake (voice of Bill Nighy). The chameleon starts calling himself Rango, manages to get himself appointed sheriff, and sets out to get to the bottom of the town's water problem. Adult viewers will enjoy identifying the many references to famous films.
