While superheros will once again dominate the summer season, Disney is hoping that audiences will want to try something a little bit different. Granted, it’s a still a movie with Johnny Depp wearing lots of feathers and headgear, but it’s in a genre that has traditionally had a mixed track record: the western. However, hoping to tap nostalgia nuts and those looking for a lotta bang for their buck, “The Lone Ranger” is riding over the horizon.
A new Japanese trailer has arrived, mixing up snatches of new footage with the material that we’ve already seen. If anything, it confirms that Gore Verbinski is spending every bit of his $200 million plus budget, and while Sofia Vergara might have guns in her boobs, Helena Bonham Carter has firepower hiding up her leg. Yet to be seen is if Armie Hammer can hold his ground against Eccentric Depp, but he wears the mask well.
“The Lone Ranger” opens on July 3rd. Watch below. [Cinema Teaser]
