THE LONE RANGER

It’s time for yet another trailer/ attempt for Walt Disney Pictures to try and convince the moviegoing populace that watching The Lone Ranger will be a good idea.  And with this newest trailer, it once again just seems like yet another big, bloated and loud $200 million studio project.  Even further, it seems exactly like another Johnny Depp franchise, but with cowboy hats.

Look at Pirates of the Caribbean—a straight-laced and vanilla guy teams up with a really wacky and oddball character played by Johnny Depp in an attempt to uncover the mystery behind the death of a beloved family member, all while falling in love with an equally straight-laced and vanilla love interest.

And now look at the newest The Lone Ranger trailer— a straight-laced and vanilla guy teams up with a really wacky and oddball character played by Johnny Depp in an attempt to uncover the mystery behind the death of a beloved family member, all while falling in love with an equally straight-laced and vanilla love interest:

So it’s more or less Cowboys of the Caribbean, which makes sense, as the film is directed and produced by Gore Verbinski and Jerry Bruckheimer, who also worked together on Caribbean.  Oh well, maybe the best we can hope for at this point is that we won’t be hit with a long stream of sequels.

The Lone Ranger is set for a July 3 release date.

What do you think of the trailer?
