The Lone Ranger

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 - Teaser Poster

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.

    Notice how Johnny Depp's name reads first. Not that I'm surprised...
    • Big Boss

    LOL. It's called "The Lone Ranger" but Johnny Depp isn't even the main character (unless they wrongfully expanded his role in order to BE the main star... which would be stupid).

      You're stupid.

        i'd be careful with calling others "stupid" - your post above about racists being mad was as idiotic as it gets.
  • Bobo_Vision
    Everything about this project is pure awesomeness.
  • truong18
    Depp is the one selling the movie not Hammer
    • GWills
      When's the last time the sidekick's name has been above the lead hero's?
      • truong18
        who give a shit about whose name is first or last.
      • Valvg
        Reeves and Keaton were second after Hackam and Nicholson..
  • dave
    Umm it shows a black mask. If you look at the Johny depp picture he does not have a black mask. So yeah that's the lone rangers eyes not tonto.
  • Bobo_Vision
    All the racists are mad that the native character is upstaging the white one.
  • LosZombies

  • uprising
