The first trailer for “The Lone Ranger,” starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, has been released at Apple.com.   This follows the release yesterday of the poster and several new images from the film.

Disney describes the film as follows:

From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski, the filmmaking team behind the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, comes Disney/Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ “The Lone Ranger,” a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes.  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.

The trailer features a Tom Wilkinson voice-over as he describes how the coming of the locomotive will change the shape of the American West and the world.  During the trailer, Tonto states, “There come a time, Kemosabe … when good man must wear mask.”  It’s a trope used often in superhero fiction (Batman and “Watchmen” come to mind) that at some points in time, a hero must protect his identity from the corruption he fights.
