If you thought Johnny Depp looked pretty wild as Captain Jack Sparrow, just wait ’til you see him in this trailer for The Lone Ranger…
Based on characters first brought to life on radio in the early 1930s, The Lone Ranger stars Depp as the Native American sage Tonto and Armie Hammer as the titular lawman John Reid. The film also reunites Depp with Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
According to Disney’s synopsis for the film, Depp and Hammer’s characters are a pair of “opposites brought together by fate [who] must join forces to battle greed and corruption.”
The Lone Ranger’s soundtrack has been composed and performed by former White Stripes front-man Jack White, and the movie also features Tom Wilkinson, Helena Bonham Carter, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale and Ruth Wilson among its cast.
The Lone Ranger will debut in UK cinemas on 9 August 2013.
