New ‘Lone Ranger’ Trailer – Watch Big Train Chases and Gunfights in Russian

Published 2 years ago by , Updated May 12th, 2013 at 7:21 am,

Disney premiered one last U.S. trailer for The Lone Ranger back in April, but that doesn’t mean the studio has finished rolling out additional theatrical promos – with previously-unreleased footage – that are intended for movie buffs who live in other countries. In fact, shortly after the final U.S. trailer dropped, the Mouse House went ahead and unveiled yet another non-english dubbed preview for that western blockbuster (starring Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp as John Reid and Tonto).

Case in point: today, we have a Russian-dubbed Lone Ranger trailer that includes a healthy amount of brand-new footage; much of which, once again, showcases the train set pieces and action sequences that contributed to the film’s much talked-about $200-250 million price tag.

Lone Ranger is a retelling of the legend about how a noble lawman (Hammer) was left for dead by bandits, prior to him being rescued by an unusual Native American spirit warrior (Depp). The pair, united by their desire to bring order and justice to the wild Old West, join forces to become the eponymous masked vigilante and his sidekick – who, together, work to take down a pack of despicable characters. That includes a railroad tycoon (Tom Wilkinson) and his vicious cronie (William Fichtner) with an eye on controlling the budding Transcontinental railroad system.

Here’s a new Lone Ranger poster, in promotion for the upcoming D23 Expo 2013 (from August 9th-11th in Anaheim):

Lone Ranger reunited Pirates of the Caribbean 1-3 director Gore Verbinski, as well as screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, with Depp. That makes this the fifth collaboration between the A-list star and Verbinski after the Pirates trilogy and the Oscar-winning animated western Rango; indeed, there are multiple elements carried over from their past collaborations, enough so that it’s been mentioned (ad nauseum) that Lone Ranger might as well be called Pirates of the Old West.

However, at the end of the day, Verbinski looks to deliver exactly what he intended to make from the beginning: a crowd-pleasing popcorn flick with touches of quirky humor and even a bit of philosophical content thrown in for good measure. Here’s to hoping this falls closer to the original Pirates of the Caribbean movie, rather than its lukewarm sequels.

  1. wow, it really looks like a darker version of wild wild west…

  2. is Tim Burnon involved in this, because it looks like a Tim Burton movie…

    • A Lone Ranger movie that looks like a Tim Burton film pretty much says it all :D

  3. This movie looks absolutely awful. Hopefully Wally can get Depp back on the right track when he releases Trancendence next year……

  4. These newer trailers have really gotten me more interested in the film. the first couple didnt so im glad they are stepping it up in the marketing.

  5. From the standpoint of a longtime Lone Ranger fan
    who grew up on daily reruns and even tracked
    down radio broadcasts I hope this film fails.

    I have longed for a long long time to see that
    daring marked man of the plains return again.
    The movie is The Lone Ranger in name only.

    • “masked” man

      • Amen. I can count on one hand the good Westerns in recent years. Appaloosa. 3:10 to Yuma (even though it was a remake, it was good). Unforgiven. Probably missing a couple others, but it’s a shamefully short list.

        • true grit remake was really good, and what is that one with Christiane Bale?

        • That’s pretty much it, cairi, plus True Grit as
          ItCameFromPlanetEarth has mentioned.
          A sad commentary on Hollywood.

      • True Grit was excellent and yes it had Christian
        Bale in what was my favorite performance of his.
        True Grit was made for just over 50 million which
        shows yo do not need to throw money at the wall.

        If this new “Lone Ranger” is indeed successful, a film
        I would not even call a western in the classic sense,
        then sequels would be made and for a new generation
        the Lone Ranger will be redefined into something he is not.

        Which means the legendary hero will be deconstructed and
        effectively destroyed, a crime fittingly punishable by hanging.
        And fans will never see their hero again in this or any lifetime.

  6. OK, here is the score: I hate Tim Burton and Johnny Depp (you can’t really mention one without thinking of the other). They should be banned for the travesty they made of the great original Dark Shadows legacy. A movie about Tonto (with–oh yes, his jr. sidekick the Lone Ranger? Naw, the Ranger is the main guy, or rather should be, not Tonto). A Poe-esque Tweety-bird on his head? C’mon, that ranks right up there with a talking tree and space ranger raccoon from GOTG as a dumb idea. And native Americans did not wear greasepaint stick like an Al Jolson rip-off from a cheap Family Dollar (“Squalor”?) Halloween display on their faces, along with Heckel & Jeckyl perched on their heads, I’m sorry–but it looks like my sweet Aunt Patootie’s ugly spinster hat. Why does it not have a lacy little sequenced veil as well? Now that would do Auntie proud (she makes them herself you know)!
    Now that I have ripped out my own lungs ripping on this movie, the other side of the coin: as an over-the-top action-flick that one does not take too seriously, this actually looks like it might be worth a watch when it comes out on Netflix, being an action out of left field type thing in the same vein as Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, some of the ones where Hansel and Gretel fight Witches, Snow White becomes an action flick, Jack The Giant Killer, and Priest. I just might actually give this one a chance. Who knows, perhaps I will have to eat my negative words a little bit; and if so, happily?!?!

    • I would like to see a serious treatment of the Lone Ranger story done, though, by someone out there. And Dark Shadows, Green Hornet, and Doc Savage.
