While a new full length trailer for The Lone Ranger is slated to debut on April 17th next week, the first TV spot has some new footage to show off. This one is certainly action-packed, with plenty of bits we haven't seen before. Helena Bonham Carter gets some more screentime along with a specially equipped boot that could prove to be deadly in the pub. But the real star this time seems to be Armie Hammer as the titular hero as he rides his trusty steed Silver along the top of a train as it barrels into a tunnel. It feels like we've been waiting forever for this flick to come out, and now I just want to if it's good or not. Watch below!
Here's the first TV spot for Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger from YouTube:
"There come a time, Kimosabe… When good men must wear mask…" Never take off the mask. Looks good?
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 Lone Ranger arrives on July 3rd.
