After watching the new trailer for Disney’s The Lone Ranger, I can only describe it with one word “badass.” While you don’t see much in this under 2 minute trailer, the scene with Depp as Tonto riding under the train, grabbed my attention and made me want to see more! Plus, check out the slow motion silver bullet. Hi-Yo, Silver away!
In the trailer you hear the voice of Tom Wilkinson, one of the film’s villains as he talks about the power of the trains, “Whoever controls this, controls the future.” Directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Verbinski and Jerry Bruckheimer, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes a film based on legend with a new spin.
The Lone Ranger combines action and humor, as the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) tells the untold legend of how lawman John Reid (Armie Hammer),became a legend of justice. This adventure is packed with epic surprises and humorous tension as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption. From the looks of the trailer, they’ll be a lot of special effects and trains!
Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) and man of the law John Reid (Armie Hammer) are opposites brought together by fate and must join forces to battle greed and corruption.
Depp’s says in the trailer, with a heavy accent, ”There come a time, Kimosabe, when good man must wear mask.” The Lone Ranger also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter.
Will this film be the stuff legends are made of? Is it true to its western roots or more like Pirates of the Carribean Wild West style? We’ll have to stay tuned for more trailers, to get a better feel for the tone of the movie.
