    Way to much waffle from the guy writing the article but the idea of a Lone Ranger movie appeals to me,i used to watch the old re runs as a kid,could be fun

    Depp is not stretching too much huh? I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm not too surprised. Love the guy but he's deep in his comfort zone. It sucks he won't be Wes Anderson's next film. It wouldn't been different for him. :(

    Johnny Depp hasn't exited his comfort zone in years. Looking doubtful he ever will.

    Well it can't be any worst than Wild Wild West or Jonah Hex can it?

    When it comes to those type of westerns then no. WIld Wild West or Jonah Hex are more blockbuster type material then westerns per se.
    I'd qualify something like Open Range or Unforgiven or that Coen brother flick ( forgot the name :o) as "true" westerns.

    And from the looks of it , Lone Ranger will be the former.
    Not saying that it's a bad thing because Verbinski knows how to shoot spectacle. It's just ....250 million for a frikkin western ??!!
    Seriously.

    If he's always like this , it does sorta make sense why they didn't want him to make a Bioshock movie.

    I feel bad for Armie who had to introduce the trailer on national television only to be billed second after Depp. :0

    I disagree. When it came to television (Deadwood, Hell on Wheels), video games (Red Dead) and smaller films, it's been (surprisingly) ok for westerns.

    But like what has mentioned before when it comes to Hollywood tent poles, that's a different story. And shows how studios can be backwards sometimes with blockbusters verses Indy films and TV.

    audiences don't pay to see depp be a normal character he has left his comfort zone in

    public enemies
    the tourist
    the rum diaries

    but they were his least interesting roles

    people want to see depp go crazy and fantastical like mad hatter and jack sparrow

    it is his sell much like people don't want to see the rock in family comedies they want to see hi mas a bad ass action hero

    I just re-watched the trailer, and what did I notice? In the credits listing at the end, Depp's the only one that gets his name before the title.

    I tried to watch the trailer on the Tonight Show website, but all it has is the audio. It shows a video of a trailer for some comedy, but then the video stops after that when it gets to Armie Hammer's interview.

    Ok thanks. It wasn't on youtube earlier when I looked.

    At least they should've had BOTH Depp's and Hammer's names before the title "The Lone Ranger" in the credits, and not Hammer after the title. Anyone casually looking at it who doesn't know who is in the film might think Depp is the Lone Ranger

    I hope it has the William Tell Overture as the theme. That teaser used none of that.

    This is my thing. I don't mind Depp coming first. It's that Hammer doesn't get pre-title, period.

    Armie Hammer's name isn't recognizable. Nobody in the general public knows who he is. Maybe if the film is a hit his name wiill be but not at the moment. Keira Knightley's name didn't make it into the credits of the first Pirates of the Caribbean trailer either.

    Don't know if the once rumored werewolves are in this movie or not, but seeing a Silver bullet in the trailer does not confirm or deny them (and are not really a spoiler), Silver Bullets have always been part of the Lone Ranger canon, regardless of any werewolves.

    Yeah, that other comic book movie site has it up, but apperantlly you're not allowed to link to here.
