Hollywood hasn’t had much luck with blockbusters westerns (The Wild Wild West pretty much killed off studio interest for the last decade), but Disney will be hoping for more from its $200+ million The Lone Ranger. And from the evidence of a new trailer that’s popped up over at Apple, the film is looking pretty good.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger,” 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.’
It’s out July 3rd in the US and August 9th in the UK.
