The Lone Ranger: First Trailer Released

Preview of western reboot starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer...

The first trailer has been released for Disney's upcoming movie "reboot" of The Lone Ranger.

The film stars Armie Hammer as a masked former Texas Ranger battling bad guys in the Wild West with the aid of Johnny Depp as his Native American sidekick Tonto.

It appears from the trailer that the plot focuses on the power struggle as railways were built across the American west, with some dramatic action set-pieces included.

Reuniting Depp with his Pirates Of The Caribbean director Gore Verbinski, the movie also stars Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson, William Fichtner and James Badge Dale.

It is due for release in UK cinemas next August.
