Disney has released a new featurette for the upcoming feature The Lone Ranger, and it’s an excellent example of why I’m looking forward to the film.  In this featurette, we see Armie Hammer performing a pretty hairy-looking stunt that involves standing atop a towering platform in the middle of the Utah desert, with only a harness keeping him from plummeting to the bottom of a canyon.  Most directors would shoot this sequence on a soundstage with plenty of green screen, but The Lone Ranger’s Gore Verbinski has shown a fantastic propensity for crazy practical stuntwork in his previous three Pirates of the Caribbean films, and I’m eager to see that same production value on the screen in The Lone Ranger.

Hit the jump to watch the featurette.  The film also stars Johnny Depp, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carter.  The Lone Ranger opens July 3rd.

Here’s the official synopsis 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.
