One glance at this trailer for "The Lone Ranger" (July 3, 2013) and there's no need to announce that the remake comes from the filmmaking team behind "Pirates of the Caribbean." Per usual these days, Johnny Depp is in heavy character makeup as the brave and brilliant fool to his stalwart fair-haired companion (Armie Hammer).

The Lone Ranger

One glance at this trailer for "The Lone Ranger" (July 3, 2013) and there's no need to announce that the remake comes from the filmmaking team behind "Pirates of the Caribbean." Per usual these days, Johnny Depp is in heavy character makeup as the brave and brilliant fool to his stalwart fair-haired companion (Armie Hammer). 

Disney, Jerry Bruckheimer, and director Gore Verbinski are making headway--and are already over-budget-- toward a new franchise replacing the uncharted seas with the Wild West of America.  In this adventure Native American warrior Tonto (Depp) and John Reid (Hammer) forge a friendship as they battle corruption and greed.  Expect runaway trains, treasure, humorous gaffes, and gun-slinging.  The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter.
