After the reported budget that was bursting at the seams, The Lone Ranger still impressed fans with a surprise teaser trailer at Comic-Con this past summer. We're still hoping to see that show up in theaters before the year is out, but until then, we have some new official photos of Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in the Disney film from Pirates of the Carribean franchise director Gore Verbinski. In addition to a couple great hero shots (in the vast Southwest landscape), we get a glimpse at some of the action, including one big fight between cowboys and the military and the locomotive (built from the ground-up).
Here are the new photos from Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger from USA Today:
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.
