Although it looked as if it was never going to get in front of cameras, The Lone Ranger is currently wrapping up production. But there is still enough film in the can for Disney to create the first trailer for the movie, which premiered last night on The Tonight Show.
I have to say that I like the way it is put together from replacing the desert highway in producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s production company logo with train tracks to the slow reveal of various iconic Lone Ranger elements such as silver bullets. The trailer does seem to lean heavier on Johnny Depp as Tonton rather than Armie Hammer as the Ranger, but that was to be expected in the marketing of the movie.
The Lone Ranger gallops into theaters next year.
