Watch The First Teaser For Gore Verbinski's THE LONE RANGER
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.

heh, was about to post this... Call me silly, but I predict it will be excellent.

You know, I like Verbinski a lot, too. The man knows how to make an entertaining mainstream spectacle.

I love how the whole trailer played like an ad for his logo.

I do kinda. The Mexican, the first Pirates of the Caribbean, and one or two scenes of the Ring all showed a certain verve, it's true. An interesting choice to cue his credit here to " look like fools," though.

Verbinski is a master stylist (I still contend The Ring is the best Hollywood horror movie of the 00's). His career kinda got sidetracked for about 5 years doing the Pirates sequels but I'm excited to have him back. This looks visually spectacular.

Ah, I love Verbinski, glad to hear others feel the same. Certainly looking forward to this.

I quite liked his smaller films like Mouse Hunt and The Weatherman as well.
