After squinting at set photos and videos over the past couple of months, we got a fresh batch of official images from director Gore Verbinski’s (the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy) The Lone Ranger yesterday. Now a few more images have surfaced, giving us further looks at stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in the adventure pic. While yesterday’s images were more atmospheric in nature, this batch gives us a closer look at a couple of action sequences. Verbinski crafted three thrilling adventure epics with his Pirates films, and I’m looking forward to seeing what his $250 million Western has in store for us. With two sets of images having been released in two days, I wouldn’t be surprised if a teaser trailer of some sort was right around the corner.
Hit the jump to check out the images. The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carter. The Lone Ranger opens July 3, 2013.
[Update: The first teaser poster has now been released and is included after the jump as well. The film’s trailer debuts tomorrow morning at 10am EST so be sure to check back here on Collider to see the first footage.]
Here’s the synopsis for The Lone Ranger:
“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 (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.
