Video: Watch the Trailer for The Lone Ranger
Following Disney's distribution of a number of movie stills from, and the official poster for, the highly anticipated film version of The Lone Ranger, the company today posted the first theatrical trailer online. The clip is action-packed to say the least: gunplay, train jumping, horse riding, Tonto (played by Johnny Depp) clinging to the bottom of a train, and an intriguing shot of a train, on its side, sliding across the flat desert plain. In all, the film looks to be in the tradition of the blockbuster Pirates of the Caribbean movies, on which Depp also worked with director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. There are some hints of Tonto's Native spirituality, but the brief video leaves a lot to the imagination. The film is due in theaters July 3, 2013.
