IT’S ANOTHER TRAILER FOR THE LONE RANGER
With these character posters released earlier this week, there was bound to be another trailer on the way and here it is. If we’ve learned anything it’s that the filmmakers really love trains. The team of producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Gore Verbinski and star Johnny Depp appear to want to do for steam locomotives, what their Pirates of the Caribbean franchise did for galleons.
Armie Hammer stars as The Lone Ranger, who teams up with Johnny Depp’s generic Native American Tonto to avenge his brothers death and look really cool in a mask. The film also stars Helena Bonham Carter, William Fichtner, Ruth Wilson and Tom Wilkenson.
There’s just something about this trailer that feels a little bit old fashioned and not in a good way. Perhaps dated is a better word. In terms of trailers released this week it’s already been outclassed by Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel and you’d expect the same to happen at the box office. Then again, Johnny Depp seems mostly bullet proof and who would have expected the Pirates films to earn billions?
The Lone Ranger is released August 9 2013 in the the UK and July 3 2013 in the US
