Watch the final trailer for The Lone Ranger and a live Q&A with Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, and Gore Verbinski

04.17.2013

THE LONE RANGER is one of the movies that I am having trouble deciding whether I really want to see or if I can wait for Blu-ray. Granted, I like the work of director Gore Verbinski and star Johnny Depp rarely disappoints, but the movie just doesn't hook me with either of the first trailers. But, maybe the final trailer can change my mind.

Premiering at 4pm EST, Yahoo Movies will present a live Q&A session with stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer along with director Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. This group will undoubtedly sing the praises of THE LONE RANGER, but they will also be giving us the newest trailer for the action western.

Here's the official synopsis for THE LONE RANGER:

Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.

You can watch the Q&A and trailer premieres below as soon as they go online.

After seeing the third trailer, I feel that Disney is trying to rebrand this is a much more serious action movie than the comedic style prevalent in the prior trailers. We now get the motivation for John Reid to seek vengeance for the death of his brother. We get our first looks at Barry Pepper and James Badge Dale in this new trailer that looks to have some truly exciting sequences in store for us. But, I just can't shake the feeling that this is going to be more WILD, WILD WEST than PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN.

THE LONE RANGER also stars Helena Bonham Carter, William Fichtner, Tom Wilkinson, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, and Ruth Wilson. It opens in theaters on July 3, 2013.

Not impressed. Seems like a repeat of Wild Wild West minus the silly gadgets and giant mechanical spider.

The Good, The Bad, and The Sad

I want to see this movie, it looks awesome, definitely a "Popcorn movie".
On the flip side, This movie is nothing like the original TV show...again Hollywood has failed or not even cared that this adpation has the characters doing things that the original would never do. 65-75% of the viewers of this movie will fail to realize this movie is based on the TV show and therefore not realize the comparison is bad.

Naaa

It just hasn't hooked me at all. I don't know why. I like Gore Verbinski too.

I fail to comprehend how people can go gaga over Pirates of the Caribbean but can't get behind this.

I honestly think this looks like a lot of fun. I'll wait to judge once I've seen the film. I enjoy Verbinski's work and would like to give him the benefit of the doubt. It looks like he took a Classic, yet corny, TV show and possibly made it a great spectacle film. We will see...Hoping for the best.

For the love of all that is holy . . .

. . . can we PLEASE make it absolute grounds for execution for any human being under any circumstances to ever again utter the phrase "LET'S DO THIS"?

I am not too excited for the film. Probably will give it a chance but the CGI is overblown and I am tired of Depp' schtick. I think 3 with a 4rth too many pirates movies has made me realize how annoying he is and this seems no different.

Do Johnny Depp & Helena Bonham Carter have some kind of contract that stipulates that they have to appear in almost every single movie together. And when they do they can't just play NORMAL people? Haha.
Otherwise, the movie looks pretty fun.

This movie is going to make big money...

... even if it isn't that good. I'm looking forward to see this and I don't understand why so many of my fellow geeks are not excited by what we see. But I'm sure the "general" audience is going to see this : Johnny Depp + an adventure movie ? How many real fun adventure movies have we seen these last years ? I'm sure it will be successful, in part because people are longing for these kind of thrills. Aside from superheroes and sci-fi, I'm glad that we get to see what looks to be a fun ride !

Nobody knew what John Carter was about, nor did they know what genre it was. "Sci-fi peplum ? Who cares ?".
Here, they know it's adventure, western, comedy. They know exactly what this movie is about and that it's got an Indian Jack Sparrow. Fun is what John Carter didn't look like from the trailers. I quite liked it and I'm glad I made the trip to the theater, but it didn't promise nor had the feeling of thrilling adventure The Lone Ranger has.

Agreed...I think this looks like a lot of fun...The CGI looks pretty seamless from what I'm seeing so far.

JOHN CARTER had two major flaws: a star who was blown out of the water by his supporting cast and a very confused promotion. I think Disney has its **** together a lot more with this movie if the trailer is any indication. I still am not a fan of Johnny Depp playing Tonto, though. It should have gone to an actual Native, IMO.

Every few years Hollywood drags out one of these old properties, gets rid of everything but the name recognition and basic concept, and turns it into a generic action movie. This film seems like this year's entry.

too big to fail?

i know its not the Lone Ranger movie i want to see, but if could still be a descent movie. The effects and action look pretty good, albeit over the top. Good or Bad, i dont think this film will be anything ground breaking. No records or accolades . It may barely make it's money back domestically but will definitely turn a profit overseas.

Anyway, i'll still probably see it. Like i said, its too big not make me curious for the final product. I just hope i could see it in 2D instead of 3D

Well....

I'm not sure if it changed my mind about paying to see this, but at least this trailer does a better job of making the movie look fun instead of just stupid.

I may be wrong

But I sense a huge failure on the horizon with this movie. Maybe with 3D and foreign box office it can't fail, but spending Titanic money on a property that isn't particularly beloved anymore, with the far bigger star playing the sidekick (in yet another kitschy role for him, which many people are kinda tired of), and having plot points like zombie werewolves or whatever... It looks like a loser to me. I know I'm not lining up for this one.
