First trailer ‘The Lone Ranger’ and new photos and a poster

Here’s the first official trailer for Disney’s $215M-budget The Lone Ranger starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski began production February 13 after months of off-again on-again drama over the project’s cost; the studio had pulled the plug altogether in August before reviving it after Bruckheimer and Verbinski were able to get the budget down.

Speaking to USA Today, Verbinski says The Lone Ranger is a “dysfunctional buddy movie”:

“It’s two guys who start literally and figuratively handcuffed together who end up on the same mission with completely different world views. They sort of rub off on one another. But they have plenty of disagreements.”

Even though Hammer is playing the eponymous Ranger, Tonto (Depp) will be no sidekick.  Speaking about the character’s odd look, Verbinski explains:

“[Tonto] is an odd-shaman, an outcast from his own tribe, who has created his own mystical world.  “[His bird headpiece] is his companion. It’s a stuffed bird that he feeds birdfeed.”

The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carter.

The movie is set for a July 3, 2013 release.
