Yesterday saw a couple of pics of Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer late for a train ride, but they weren’t exactly official pics. Not like these ones, nosirreee, which were hand delivered by a horse-drawn wagon with several arrows and bullet holes inside of it. Ah, the joy of working from PE.
But wait, there’s more! A trailer has finally emerged, and it’s got a full minute of some pure action, with Depp clearly stealing the show so far. Because a bird on the head is worth two in the saddle. I think.
I’ve got to be honest here, as a western fan, I’m pretty much pumped for this. Director Gore Verbinski may have jumped the shark with that third Pirates of the Caribbean film, but after watching Rango, it’s clear that he knows how to nail a proper western atmosphere, and I can’t wait to see some silver bullets fly.
The Lone Ranger is out next year July, and stars Armie Hammer, Johnny Depp, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson and Helena Bonham Carter.
