New TV Spot and Character Poster for THE LONE RANGER

Disney has released a new TV spot and character poster for director Gore Verbinski’s upcoming iteration of The Lone Ranger.  Based on the classic TV series of the same name, the film stars Armie Hammer as the titular hero and Johnny Depp as the sidekick Tonto.  This TV spot has a very heavy focus on the pic’s train-centered action sequences, and admittedly the CG looks a bit spotty.  Verbinski delivered some swell set pieces in his Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, though, so hopefully we’ll see the same quality on display in The Lone Ranger.  Additionally, on the heels of a couple of character posters for Hammer and Depp, Disney has released a new poster for Helena Bonham Carter’s character Red Harrington, who is described as a “dramatically coiffed, straight-talking, ivory-legged proprietor of a mobile establishment of lavish entertainments.”  I’m pretty sure that’s fancy talk for Madam.

Hit the jump to check out the TV spot and poster.  The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, and Ruth Wilson.  The Lone Ranger opens on July 3rd.

Here’s the official 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.
