The Lone Ranger

With Disney's sci-fi epic John Carter hitting theaters tomorrow, their marketing machine is in full swing with new images of Dark Shadows (while plenty of images have hit recently, we're waiting for a trailer to hit sometime soon) and now, with production recently underway, Jerry Bruckheimer (noticed on Twitter by ComingSoon) has unveiled the first official look at Armie Hammer as The Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp as his trusty sidekick Tonto. Really Depp just looks like Captain Jack Sparrow as a grumpy Native American, but Hammer seems to be quite a dashing hero. Maybe we'll get a brief teaser soon? Image below!

Here's our first look at Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger from Jerry Bruckheimer's Twitter:

The Lone Ranger - First Look

The Lone Ranger is directed by Pirates of the Caribbean franchise helmer Gore Verbinski and written by Ted Elliot, Terry Rossio and Justin Haythe. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption. The film arrives on May 31st, 2013.

    will save my comments for a trailer, though i do hope this works out for the better.
  • I can't say I am too thrilled with that picture at all; I was hoping for a classic powder blue Lone Ranger. 
  • Errr... Pirates of the Midwest?
  • Isildur_of_Numenor
    I say it looks promising.

    How has Armie Hammer not narrated everything?
  • Jonathon
    Wouldn't it be Southwest? Since they're filming in New Mexico and all... :) I just wish Depp would step out of his comfort zone!! He's worn these types of characters out!

    Depp looks old and whats with the strange crow hat?? And as for the Lone Ranger - he looks to young! Its a difficult boot to fill given how good Klinton Splisbury was in the role.

  • Could be good. I'll wait for the trailer though.
    Couple of Pimps.

    That crow on top makes it look a lot like a pirate hat...oh marketing
  • goatmouth
    This looks WHAAAAAAAACK.  Native Americans are shaking their collective heads and sighing everywhere.  "Here we go again. Wake me when it's over."
    • bozo connors
       Nah - we're not.  It's just a movie.  Plus, at least it's not Jon Lovitz!  (SNL skit)  😉

    AWESOME! Depp as Tonto is genius. Looking forward to it. 
  • But why the rum?
  • Cineasta
    I thought they didn't have a script yet, but apparently not since this is the first look at PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE LONE RANGER RIDES.  I've always been a huge fan of The Lone Ranger from the old 50's show to the 80's cartoon to the 00's comic book. I'm even a fan of Verbinski, Depp and Hammer but this just looks all wrong. Just on a character design level...  While I'm not arguing for the powder blue outfit, I do think they could've come up with an alternative that was more faithful (I hate that the red bandanna is a thin rolled up wrap around his neck... it's like an afterthought). And I seriously can't believe they just dusted off the Sparrow costume for Depp.  I know this is an incredibly early sneak peek and who knows maybe Hammer will don the more classic outfit at some point in the movie. But this pic alone has get me worried and feeling like maybe Disney should've pulled the plug completely.
  • Umm, what LDP wasnt up for it? some random indian ... COME ON
  • jah p
    I can't stop laughing!lol!!!! They better have a helluva trailer!
  • Ann
    Dark Shadows is Warner Bros. After reading your comments people, I know one thing - you know nothing about Native Americans and their history. It's really sad.  Classic look was good in 50th or 60th not today.
