First Trailer for THE LONE RANGER Starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer

The first trailer for director Gore Verbinski’s (the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy) The Lone Ranger has been released.  Though the film features what are likely a couple of showy performances from Johnny Depp (Tonto) and The Social Network‘s Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger himself), this trailer is mostly about trains.  Matt made a similar comment regarding the footage shown at Comic-Con, so it’s safe to assume that the mode of transportation plays a large role in the film.  Verbinski appears to have put together one hell of a pretty-lookin’ movie, but we don’t see or hear enough of Depp’s Tonto to judge whether he’s veered too far over the top or hit that Jack Sparrow sweet spot.  I’m encouraged by Verbinski’s talent and the impressive line of actors in the ensemble (including trailer-narrator Tom Wilkinson as the villain), so hopefully we’re in for a big, fun Western adventure.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film stars Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carter.  The Lone Ranger opens July 3, 2013.

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.

    It doesn’t look bad, but it didn’t do anything to convince me that this filmed needed to be a $250 million Western. It’s also very odd they didn’t do anything to give us a feel for what the two leads are like.

    • Tyler

      I agree about the two leads, especially Armie Hammer as the title character. However, I can see that the huge budget went into building full scale trains, which could have easily been cgi’d, especially with Industrial Light and Magic. That being said, this film looks like one hell of a time.

      • Grayden

        CGI trains? Really? You know what helped sell the Pirates films, other than Jack Sparrow? The realism. They used real vessels, not CGI’d ones. Realism is everything in a period piece, whether it’s pirates or westerns. You are immediately transported to that era of time. It sells the look of the film and its more genuine than CGI,; which has it’s place, don’t get me wrong.

      • Tyler

        @Grayden
        Exactly. Thats my point. The budget is as large as it is, because building the full scale trains of the time are not cheap in any sense of the word. Thats why most movies that use old style trains onoy use the fron part and possibly another section, but that is it. They keep the camera at an angle that conceals the missing parts. Now, the fact that Industrial Light and Magic is involved means that there is probably some elaborate train crash (shown partly in the trailer) that would be too dangerous to do practically.

    Hmm… Lots of trains.

    • AManWithAKilt

      Needs more trains.

    • Book1245

      The trains must flow.

  • Old Soldier

    Come on, where’s the William Tell Overture!

    • Sean

      Maybe in the next movie trailer. The movie trailer for this movie that was just released, is only the teaser trailer for the movie.

  • JPA

    TRAAAAAAAINS

    Looks fun,anyway. Better than I expected.

  • The Dude

    Did not have high hopes for this film. But the trailer may of changed that a bit.

  • Sovereign

    I’d be lying if I said Johnny Depp as Tonto didn’t bug me. I’m sure his performance will be great, but a white man portraying another race just brings back bad memories of Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany’s…nonetheless, it looks like a pretty solid movie.

    • Chad

      Since Depp’s heritage is part Cherokee, you can rest easy that he’s not all “white” and your assumptions are indeed unfounded.

    • Sean

      Johnny Depp is part Cherokee.

  • Farzan

    Wow, that looked really bad. This is bound to flop

    • Sean

      I doubt that it will flop. It actually looks really good, it does not look bad at all.

    had “rango” not been so amazingly fantastic i would have just went meh…but will give it benefit of the doubt simply based on that film

  • terry

    The joke will be on Hammer because Depp probably got a 20 million payday for this turkey.

  • J-rad

    Actually looked better than I expected it too. Not $250 million better mind you, but not a huge flop as we have been lead to believe. I bet this makes double its money when all is said and done. Has sort of a 175 million domestic with a 325 international feel to me. I kind of like that they left a bit of mystery with the 2 leads. Leaves me more curious than I was before about the flick.

  • Kenny B

    this will not flop. Every 8 year old boy, to 30 year old men are now wetting there pants over the idea of an Western Pirates flick. Loooks like a hell of a good time

      It’s “you’re” not “your.” That’s also stupid.

    this movie will be good but guessing the fact that simple fans are guessing box office totals like they have inside info is foolish

      Who’s the stupid one?

  • Anonymous

    Doesn’t look very interesting. And I’m still doubting Armie Hammer in one of the lead roles. He just seems too bland to me.

  • Strong Enough

    I bet there is a train in this movie somewhere

  • Anonymous

    It’s just a teaser, so I shouldn’t expect to be blown away. But this doesn’t look very interesting to me. And I still have doubts about Hammer in a lead roll. He’s just too bland to me.

    book under another box office under Johnny’s belt
