New international trailer for The Lone Ranger evokes a little Pirates of the Caribbean flavor

04.18.2013

Of all the movies coming out this summer, I'm most curious to see how THE LONE RANGER does. Based on the general buzz of the film it seems like it may not fare well. However, those signals may not be the best indicator when you consider the overall assets involved in the film. An iconic (even if dated) character, Jerry Bruckheimer, Johnny Depp, Gore Verbinski, and Hans Zimmer on the score leave a lot of room for success, even if it's a lot like Wild Wild Cowboys of the Caribbean.

Today, we have a new international trailer that has a ton of new footage, even after the large amount featured in the newest domestic trailer, which highlights the playful tone of the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN franchise. I'm down with it, but I'm sure it will irk quite a few looking for a more "serious" film. However, it looks like there's more than enough action to even things out.

Take a look:

A lot of folks liken THE LONE RANGER to PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN as a result of those involved on the film as a negative. However, when that "negative" equals a $1.2 billion franchise take, it's a bit of an oxymoron. Granted, the reviews weren't exactly smokin' for the last two PIRATES films, but that didn't affect the box office in the least. It's more of an uphill battle for THE LONE RANGER, but I think it's got more than a fighting chance to be a hit. As a fan of all involved and a lifelong Lone Ranger follower, I'm there (shit, did I just show my age?) 

THE LONE RANGER rides off into the sunset on July 3, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: I'd love to see Verbinski tackle an action film franchise. It'll never happen, but imagine him on a Die Hard film. Lots of potential there.

I love the Lone Ranger story

...but this looks like WAYYYY over the top Wild Wild West level horse sh*t. That said, I will probably still see it in the theater simply because it's the Lone Ranger and Tonto on the big screen and I have weekends off. Family day at the movies is hardly ever not worth it.

I actually think Gore Verbinski would be ill-suited for a straight action film. He's so visually imaginative that he needs strong fantasy elements to work with. I'd rather see him go back to making Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

Seconded! Although I don't see how the Die Hard franchise can possibly get any worse at this point. That last one made Live Free or Die Hard look good in comparison.

you know...

if you had told me there was a well-produced, big budget film with some great actors in it that really looked like a waste of talent and money, i would have thought "TF4?". but no. i cannot yet say this IS bad, having not seen it. i can only say, with all it has going FOR it, this isnt putting the silver bullet in my chamber.
