The Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer coming to Blu-ray in December
Walt Disney Home Entertainment has announced that their action/western flick THE LONE RANGER, from director Gore Verbinski and starring Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, William Fichtner, Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson, Helena Bonham Carter and James Badge Dale, will be available in a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack on December 17, 2013.
Here’s the official synopsis: The Lone Ranger (Hammer), the last of his kind, teams with Tonto (Depp), a dark and mysterious vigilante, to seek vengeance after justice has failed them. It’s a runaway train of epic surprises, as these two unlikely heroes must learn to work together before the ultimate showdown between good and evil explodes.
Even though Disney did their best to promote THE LONE RANGER in the past year, they didn’t succeed as the film only brought in just over $89 million. That wouldn’t be too shabby for most films, but THE LONE RANGER had a $215 million budget, so ouch! Check out the trailer for THE LONE RANGER below.
Special features for THE LONE RANGER include: Riding The Rails of The Lone Ranger: For the production of the movie, director Gore Verbinski had a five mile oval track built along with multiple engines and cars.
