First trailer for The Lone Ranger released

Let’s be clear, the production for Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger has gone through a lot of development hell. It almost didn’t get made because of its ballooning budget and the failure of Cowboys vs. Aliens. Once the budgetary concerns were taken care of, production finally went underway back in March. Seven months later and we finally have our first look at Armie Hammer as John Reid (The Lone Ranger) and Johnny Depp as Tonto.  Check out the trailer below!

For a teaser trailer, it’s done its job right. Gore Verbinski in my opinion has a really great knack for cool visuals and cinematography. The Lone Ranger has no shortage of that, but I couldn’t feel Johnny Depp’s voiceover as Tonto. It’s not Tonto we’re hearing, it’s Tonto with a Jack Sparrow-esque tone to it. I’m going to wait for a real trailer before I make my final judgement on whether to see the movie or not. I’ve been fooled by trailers with awesome visuals before; Wrath of the Titans anyone? The Lone Ranger is set to be released July 3rd, 2013.
