The first official trailer for The Lone Ranger has been unveiled.

Scroll down to watch the action-packed trailer, which features stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. The film tells the story of a masked crimefighter (Hammer) and his sidekick Tonto (Depp) and is based on the popular television series from the 1950s. The movie is set for release in the summer of next year.

The film is being directed by Gore Verbinski (Rango, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest) and Jack White will write, produce and perform the soundtrack to Disney’s new adaptation.

The project will be White’s first complete film soundtrack. “Jack’s an amazing songwriter with a unique style,” producer Jerry Bruckheimer recently told Variety. “We’re all very excited to have him on board.”

Johnny Depp is said to be “thrilled” that White will write the soundtrack.

Earlier this month, a crew member died on the set of The Lone Ranger. The diver was working in an underwater tank in Los Angeles and drowned.
