Disney's blockbuster western rides into town on August 9
Disney has released a new trailer for its summer blockbuster The Lone Ranger. Scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch it.
The big budget western stars Armie Hammer as the iconic title character, who first appeared in a 1930s radio show and has since spawned his own novels, comic books and TV series. Johnny Depp co-stars as his American Indian companion Tonto.
The Lone Ranger is Depp’s latest collaboration with Gore Verbinski, director of the first three Pirates of The Caribbean films, and Jerry Bruckheimer, producer of all four Jack Sparrow movies.
The Lone Ranger‘s cast also includes Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson and former 24 actor James Badge Dale. Originally, Jack White was down to write the film’s score, but he pulled out last December (2012) due to a scheduling conflict and was replaced by prolific film composer Hans Zimmer.
The Lone Ranger opens in the US on July 4, as the trailer promises, but UK cinema-goers will have to wait until August 9 to see it. Meanwhile, a fifth Pirates Of The Caribbean film is in the works and has been given a release date of July 1 2015.
