Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer star in the new Lone Ranger trailer
Disney has put a lot of time and money into the long gestating big screen version of THE LONE RANGER and today we get our first real look at what their money has bought. Basically, it’s what we thought; Johnny Depp is another quirky character and director Gore Verbinski filming every scene with a ton of style which doesn’t always work. The trailer sets up Armie Hammer’s Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp’s Tonto and then throws them in some crazy stunts. I’m still not convinced this is going to come together, but America loves their quirky Johnny Depp in big summer blockbusters, so I’m sure it will make money. Johnny Depp fans will be pleased with the trailer, even if the whole thing seems a little odd to me. I did find the insert of the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN logo right in the middle of the trailer to be weird, but I guess they have to relate it to something people know.
THE LONE RANGER stars Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, William Fichtner, Tom Wilkinson, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter (shocker!). The Gore Verbinski directed film hits theaters on May 31st, 2013.
