First Teaser Poster for 'The Lone Ranger' Never Takes Off the Mask
Photos for Gore Verbinski's take on The Lone Ranger have been popping up over the past couple days, and the first trailer arrives tomorrow at 10am EST. In the meantime, the first bit of hype for the film has surfaced across the pond in the form of a graffiti style teaser poster. It's definitely not the style we were expecting to kick off the campaign for Disney's epic western starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, but it's pretty cool. However, I can't help but be slightly annoyed though that this teaser poster seems to focus on Depp's eyes as Tonto rather than the character to which the title and tagline are referring. Look!
Here's the teaser poster for Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger from the film's Facebook page:
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 July 3rd, 2013.
