Latest Lone Ranger Trailer Lays Out Origins of Man Behind Mask

Disney hopes to recapture some of that Pirates of the Caribbean magic with The Lone Ranger, which reunites franchise star Johnny Depp with director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer to retell the story of the masked man who fights for justice with the help of his Native American companion Tonto. Despite delays, budget cuts and a prolonged shooting schedule, the Western has finally come together, with Social Network actor Armie Hammer in the title role.

After the release of some images and a teaser in October, all has been quiet on the Old West front. But now, thanks to iTunes, there’s now a full-length trailer. As you can see below, it focuses mainly on the origins of the Lone Ranger.You also get a better sense of Depp’s unique take on Tonto.

The Lone Ranger also stars Helena Bonham Carter, William Fichtner, Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson and James Badge Dale. The film opens on July 3, 2013.

From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger,” a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit 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.

    The trailer does nothing for me.Yes, the women are swooning over Johnny Depp as he makes his dramatic appearance as Tonto, but before the long film delay, the original script had Werewolves in it.The film was going to be absolutely over the top insane.I’m sure that the film will do well in the theaters as long as it doesn’t come out when there’s a superhero film just around the corner.

    Oh, wait.Too late.The Man Of Steel movie comes out one month before The Lone Ranger and Iron Man 3 which comes out in May will still be playing in the theaters around the world.So, it doesn’t take a genius to realize that this film won’t be breaking any box office records.Especially with Superman’s shadow hanging over them.

    I’m not disagreeing with you but I feel like Lone Rangers demographic is different than Iron Man 3 and Man of Steel. This is a Disney Film, they will market the hell out of it, and we haven’t had a fun western in awhile.
