New Lone Ranger Trailer Traces the Rise of an American Legend
Disney has rolled out the action-packed fourth trailer for director Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger that plays up both the quasi-supernatural transformation of the presumed-dead John Reid into the legendary masked man and the films delightfully improbable train sequences. Of course, there’s also plenty of footage of Johnny Depp as Tonto.
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.
Opening July 3, the big-budget Western also stars Helena Bonham Carter, Jason E. Hill, Barry Pepper, William Fitchner, James Badge Dale, Tom Wilkinson and Ruth Wilson
