The first trailer for Gore Verbinski’s highly anticipated take on The Lone Ranger has arrived and judging by the action sequences and rock and roll-laced trailer soundtrack, it looks like the film is shaping up to be a true reimagining of a classic radio-era hero. The story of this iconic hero follows John Reid, the last of the Texas Rangers, who is saved by the Native America known as Tonto and eventually takes up the mantle of The Lone Ranger to dish out his own brand of (non-lethal) justice.
The trailer itself offers us a refreshing (and fast-paced) look at what we hope will become a quality western period piece. Tell us what you think of the trailer in the comments below!
Directed by Gore Verbinski, The Lone Ranger stars Armie Hammer, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper and Timothy Hutton. and will be released in theaters July 3, 2013.
