Watch: Fast-Paced, Action-Packed Japanese Trailer for 'Lone Ranger'

March 13, 2013

The Lone Ranger

If the dialogue of any given blockbuster is hard to translate into another language, then it's time for an explosive, adrenaline-fueled montage to sell the flick. That's exactly what Disney has done with this Japanese trailer for The Lone Ranger, a film featuring an American hero who might not be very well known to the Asian population. Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer each get their heroic moments, but most of the trailer is spent with the action set pieces, gunshots, explosions and very little dialogue. I gotta say though, it's not a bad way to sell the film here in the US for those just looking for summer action. Watch!

Here's the Japanese trailer for Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger via 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.

This is a Western? FAIL. Disney will get my money for Iron Man 3, not this crap.

Yeah, this is a tough one to get aboard. Even with the POTC pedigree, it looks very strange.

Lets be fair, 1/2 of the PotC movies sucked ass.

All of the potc movies were great and were a smash hits on the BO

If you think On Stranger Tides and At worlds End were "Great movies"........I do not even know what to say. I cannot argue with their box office revenue. Dollars earned, however, does not equate to good plot, writing, acting or compelling characters.

I certainly agree with you about dollars not equal to quality. Perhaps I missed out some info in my comment. I really liked the Curse of the Black Pearl but the next two sequels sucked. On Stranger Tides was OK not great.

Black Pearl borders on excellence. Fun for every one, original characters, witty jokes, fun story. By movies 3&4 all their shtick had worn out.

i saw all what you've mention in the sequels all of he three were great and enjoyable

Well, django and true grit didn't fail and were a hits at the BO !!

This looks far too childish and OTT for my liking. Anyone else had enough Johnny Depp?

ott on Mar 14, 2013


Childish!? it looks like an R movie ! No one had enough johnny depp he is a real actor he is not just a movie star he's still adored from the whole world and that's why his movies did well at the BO
