Disney recently unveiled a new full trailer for its big-budget "The Lone Ranger" film, starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. And now, the studio has released an international trailer, showing lots of new footage from the movie. Check it out below.
Plot: Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice.
The new movie is directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean), and co-stars Helena Bonham Carter, William Fichtner, Tom Wilkinson and Barry Pepper. It's set to hit theaters on July 3rd.

No thanks. Depp should have been The Lone Ranger, not Hammer, who most people couldn't find on a mugshot hotsheet (hint: he'd be the only white guy).
That and it's a f*cking wannabe Western, which doesn't have the play today it had eighty years ago. Seriously, name one Western within the last fifteen years that was huge. Just one. Unforgiven was a loooooong time ago, and that was Clint doing what Clint once did exceptionally well, again. And 3:10 to Yuma was hardly a hit.
Sure, sure, it's Disney (wait...), but if you notice, they've shifted gears now. No Pirates this time, but they've retained Depp, so their strategy is clear. Change the scenery, keep the main attraction. They know people are sick of PoTC so they just relocated Depp to another flick they can franchise exploit, with Depp doing his wild and wooly role-stomping stupidity.
So the real question is: if TLR bombs, or doesn't do well enough to warrant a sequel, will Disney slink back to Pirates again, or will they look for some other property to rape, and if so, will Depp return as another idiotic Sparrow/Tonto-esque pantomiming poofery?
