Not that there's ever been any real doubt about who would really be the lead in Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger
- Hint: It's not the guy in the title - the first official poster clinches it. While it may say The Lone Ranger
in big, bold letters the only face to appear on the thing belongs to Johnny Depp's Tonto.
Things are slightly more balanced between Depp and Hammer in the first teaser for the film - which premiered last night on Leno and is embedded below - but it also makes plain that neither of these men are really the star. Not really. No, this is about spectacle. If there's a star here at all it's director Verbinski and his big, sweeping set pieces. Yes, the big budget has made it on to the screen.
A troubled production that was shut down at one point due to well publicized budget issues and recently had a stuntman die on set, The Lone Ranger
is a blockbuster in need of some goodwill before it rolls out in 2013. What say you? Does the teaser set a tone that gets your interest? Take a look below.
