Action-Packed 'Lone Ranger' Trailer Hits the Web

First, we saw images. Then, a new poster. This morning, those teases have led to a trailer for Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger, a revisionist Western starring Armie Hammer, Johnny Depp and – according to the clip – a whole lot of trains. 
 
Here’s the new Lone Ranger trailer: 
 

 
Verbinski reteams with his Pirates of the Caribbean producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, to bring the masked cowboy back from Hollywood’s vaults. Hammer and Depp reportedly play two halves of a dysfunctional buddy action-comedy, with heavy doses of Manifest Destiny carrying settlers across the Western plains of the great United States. 
 
The clip, surprisingly, is short on Depp and Hammer (though we get a very good look at Helena Bonham Carter, in costume). Instead, Verbinski uses this opportunity to establish his setting, and pit horses against trains … a crucial swing in the balance of power back in the Wild West.
 
Either way, Lone Ranger looks big. It appears to mirror the scope of Verbinski’s massive Pirates movies, shifting focus off the high seas and into Monument Valley. The cinematography, alone, should be worth the price of admission. 
 
The Lone Ranger opens on July 3, 2013. What do you think of the new trailer?
