Second Trailer for Gore Verbinski’s ‘The Lone Ranger’ Paints an Overly Serious Picture
When a film version of 1960’s TV western The Lone Ranger was announced, we were all worried that it might have been a joke too far for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ team Gore Verbinski and Johnny Depp. They’d struck lightning once, but could they do it again with an equally barmy and non-commercial project? Imagine our surprise, then, that ‘The Lone Ranger’ isn’t even slightly comedic, and this second trailer portrays the serious tone the film is apparently going for.
Also starring Armie Hammer, Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, Helena Bonham-Carter and James Badge Dale, the film hits cinemas next summer on July 3, 2013.
