'The Lone Ranger' trailer hits the web - See video
The trailer for the highly anticipated film "The Lone Ranger" debuted on the web on Wednesday, October 3, giving fans a glimpse of Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the titular Lone Ranger in action mode.
The action-packed trailer features lots of bullets flying, high-speed locomotives and men in masks on galloping horses. There is also a voice over from Tonto's perspective by Depp who says, "There come a time, Kemosabe when good man must wear mask."
The trailer, which can be viewed below, also gives viewers a first glimpse of Helena Bonham Carter as Red.
The project comes from the filmmakers of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series and sees Tonto, described as a "spirit warrior on a personal quest," joining forces with John Reid, a lawman who becomes a masked avenger nicknamed the Lone Ranger, in a "fight for justice."
The "Lone Ranger" movie is directed by Gore Verbinski, who directed Depp in the first three "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, and is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, who also worked on the hit Disney franchise.
The franchise began as a radio series in the 1930s and inspired films, television shows, comic books and records, as well as the spin-off "The Green Hornet." The "Lone Ranger" franchise sees the main character and Tonto fighting crime in the Old West and spurred the hero's catchphrase, "Hi-yo, Silver! Away!" He shouts it to his horse.
In September, it was reported that a crewmember from the film died while working on set.
"The Lone Ranger" is set for release on July 3, 2013. Check out the trailer below.
