"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Gearing up for the Super Bowl, Disney has released a new poster and brief preview of the 90-second trailer for The Lone Ranger set to air Sunday during the CBS pre-show. The teaser is short, of course — just 20 seconds long — but it does tempt us with new footage of Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, to say nothing of explosions and one of the film’s much-touted train sequences.
Directed by Gore Verbinski, The Lone Ranger also stars Helena Bonham Carter, William Fichtner, Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson and James Badge Dale. The big-budget Western opens July 3.
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.
