The Lone Ranger trailer appears
It's hard to see in this trailer where all the money went for The Lone Ranger, but something is clear from it and that's the message that this isn't the Lone Ranger you might be expecting, well not from Tonto's viewpoint anyway.
Tonto, played by Johnny Depp, features probably a little more than the Lone Ranger himself who is played by Armie Hammer. We also get Helena Bonham Carter, William Fichtner, Tom Wilkinson, Barry Pepper and Ruth Wilson too, and all directed by Gore Verbinski.
It's difficult not to have that foreboding feel of Wild Wild West proportions when you see this trailer, after all there are a few similarities, thankfully none of them are of silly mechanical machines and technology other than that of the impending rail road.
Here's the blurb for The Lone Ranger:
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.
Now here's the trailer for The Lone Ranger through TrailerAddict so that we can see what all the fuss is about, although there's no sign of a huge budget as yet, except for maybe those opening CG sections, there's nothing that really blows me away apart from the costume and style of Tonto.
