New Mexico, Home of the Lone Ranger

Film Trails Site Pairs Shooting Locations With Nearby Attractions

"The Lone Ranger"

SANTA FE, N.M. (July 23, 2013) — This summer, New Mexico is inviting visitors to experience authentic adventure through a different lens with the help of www.newmexico.org/filmtrails, a new travel planning resource created by the state’s tourism department. Using special itineraries, film history and lore, travelers can plan trips based on popular movies and TV series shot in New Mexico. The most recent of these, Disney’s “The Lone Ranger,” features scenes filmed in various locations across the state.

“With its breathtaking backdrops carved out by nature and history, temperate climate and unique blend of cultures, New Mexico has always been a natural filming location,” New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez said. “Now, we’re thrilled to share these views with the millions of filmgoers who will see Disney’s ‘The Lone Ranger’ this summer."

From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger” is a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice – taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.

Filmmakers chose New Mexico's Rio Puerco as an authentic setting for their own version of a Wild West town and shot the movie's thrilling train sequence in Cimarron Canyon near Angel Fire, N.M. To guide visitors to these locations and others, the New Mexico Tourism Department created the New Mexico Film Trails site.

"'The Lone Ranger' is one of the most buzzed about blockbusters of the summer, and it happens to coincide with a growing consumer interest in film-related tourism," said Monique Jacobson, New Mexico's secretary of tourism. "This summer and beyond, visitors to our state will discover many ways to experience the flavor of the Wild West and of 'The Lone Ranger' itself."

“The Lone Ranger” also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter.

A Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films presentation, “The Lone Ranger” is directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski, with screen story by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio and Justin Haythe and screenplay by Justin Haythe and Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio.

Hanky Panky and Monistat Team Up to Help Women Feel Like Their Sexy Selves and to Giveaway Free Panties

Enter for a Chance to Win Hanky Panky panties
MONISTAT® Announces Partnership with Hanky Panky
Noted Brands Team Up to Help Women Feel Like Their Sexy Selves

TREVOSE, PA (July 15, 2013)MONISTAT®, the #1 doctor-recommended over-the-counter vaginal yeast infection treatment, announced it has partnered with Hanky Panky, the leading name in premium underwear and lingerie. The partnership underscores each brand’s commitment to helping women feel like their sexy selves all year long.

To kick off the partnership, MONISTAT® is offering women the chance to win Hanky Panky panties through the Sexy Self Panty Giveaway. Now through November 30, a daily winner will be selected from entries on www.Monistat.com. To Enter the Sexy Self Panty Giveaway use Promotion code: HANKY

“Though the MONISTAT® and Hanky Panky brands are seemingly different, both are rooted in the notion that women deserve to feel confident and sexy regardless of what’s happening with their bodies,” said Jennifer Moyer, vice president of marketing for Insight Pharmaceuticals, LLC, parent company of MONISTAT®. “In a recent survey we conducted, we found that when women have vaginal yeast infections, they aren’t simply uncomfortable – they actually don’t feel like themselves. A great metaphor for this is a woman’s choice of underwear. If a woman is suffering, she gravitates toward ‘granny panties,’ but when she’s yeast infection-free, she opts for sexier panties. Women should feel confident no matter what. And if there’s one brand that helps women feel great about themselves it’s Hanky Panky, so we’re thrilled to partner with them on this effort.”

Hanky Panky was created with the mindset that women deserve underwear that makes them feel feminine and that not only fits, but also flatters. At the time of the company’s founding in 1977, thongs were thought to be too racy to be sold in stores, and discussing them was borderline taboo. Thirty-five years later, Hanky Panky has amassed a dedicated following of loyalists who swear by the brand for its comfortable yet sexy lingerie – and its signature thongs.

“Every woman deserves to feel sexy, inside and out,” said JD Breen, glam guru for Hanky Panky.” At Hanky Panky, we put our heart and soul into creating cute, flirty underwear for women to enjoy every day, and we’ve been doing it for more than 30 years. It makes sense we’d partner with MONISTAT® since we’re working toward the same goal – empowering women to feel in control, confident and sexy.”

“MONISTAT®’s mission is to help women get back to feeling like themselves – and into their sexy Hanky Panky underwear – by treating vaginal yeast infections efficiently with our over-the-counter products,” Moyer continued. “In fact, MONISTAT® is proven to be just as effective as the leading prescription. We know that yeast infections aren’t pretty, but MONISTAT® can help women feel like themselves again.”
