New Trailer: The Lone Ranger

Posted April 17, 2013 10:03 PM by Webmaster

Walt Disney StudiosDisney has released a new trailer for producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger, starring Armie Hammer, Johnny Depp, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper and Helena Bonham Carter.

Official Synopsis: The Lone Ranger is 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 (Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (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 Lone Ranger is set to open in theaters across the U.S. on July 3rd.

I thought the days of white guys playing Native Americans were over.

How can they not use the William Tell Overture? That's beyond stupid.

I don't agree with CandyStalker about Johnny Depp, but I do agree that this looks like a colossal piece of shit.

In this day and age I'm surprised CandyStalker was allowed to say THAT much without being labeled a hater or a troll

@kafziel

No a colossal piece of shit are films like Die Hard 5, and Iron Sky.

This while being overblown, and flashy will look a miniscule piece of shit in comparison.

Good for a thrill, I'll go see it.

I was really looking forward to this. Now I think I'll boycot all Disney theatrical showings for the foreseeable future and lend my financial support to their BD product, their BD product only.

It might be a good movie, but it will certainly be a flop.

I think this looks good. At first I didnt think it was going to be all that..but this new trailer gives me some hope that it will be better than I thought.

I don't know why every time they do a reboot, they feel it must be an origin tale. But this does look like it might be fun. Unless it got really bad reviews, I'd probably go to see it.

Depp is doing a deadpan Jay Silverheels (who played Tonto in the TV series) voice impression and I find that really funny. And as others have posted, Depp does claim some native American descent: Cherokee and Navajo (in addition to Irish and German). I guess that gives Disney enough "political correctness" cover. Strangely (or uniquely) enough, both the TV show and the 1981 movie used native-Americans to play Tonto, something fairly unusual in Hollywood until recently.

I don't think this will be an outright flop, but I don't think it's going to be a really big film either. Simply not enough interest in Westerns or in The Lone Ranger. Some baby boomers might take their grandkids and some Johnny Depp fans will go, but a big, mass audience? I don't think so. I have to wonder what Disney was thinking. Hard for me to believe that they didn't do some research on the concept.

I have more hope for this after this trailer. I frankly don't see why it couldn't be sucessful. What is wrong with the Lone Ranger or westerns? Why would these be any less acceptable to a large audience than any of the superhero movies?

I'll give it a chance. Die Hard 5 was a bit of a disappointment. So was G.I. Joe 2, even with lowered expectations. Oh well.

This just looks like "Wild, Wild West" all over again.

Why does Michael Bay get all the hate, and Gore Verbinski gets none? He's just Jerry Bruckheimer's newer version of him.

@Iron Eagle 74,

HA! The days of white actors playing non-white roles will most likely never be over, not for a long time. Remember, almost all protagonists have to be white, or Will Smith, in blockbuster movies.
