    Default Lone Ranger Superbowl Spot

    Johnny Depp stars in the story of the Lone Ranger. Armie Hammer plays support as the Lone Ranger. At least that's how it was looking so far. This trailer tips things back just a little.

    At time of publication, this hadn't been screened on the TV. Does that take the fun out of Superbowl trailers a little?

    And now it's aired.... looked pretty straight (barring the crow hat) until that last scene, which was a bit Jack Sparrow

    Disney really wants that Pirates of the Caribbean Money. And that Avengers money. And that Star Wars money. Meanwhile Warner doesn't seem to be making moves with its properties.

    They turned it private for a short while. Sorry that I didn't notice at the time.

    When I first heard that Tonto was going to be the main character, I was hoping they were going to update HI-YO SILVER (1940), the first Lone Ranger flick in which nobody actually knows which of 5 possible people in town is the Lone Ranger...until only one man remains. It's quite brilliant. If you can find it online, I recommend it.

    I'm just not buying Depp as Tonto...or as someone of Native American descent at all. Maybe his Tonto will have a back story similar to Mary McDonnell's DANCES WITH WOLVES character?

    I'm getting a steampunk-less WILD, WILD WEST vibe more than anything else tho'. The score's not helping. How about just an allusion to the William Tell Overture, hm? That might help.
    OK, so NObody ever clicks on links in sigs, but, come on, click on THIS one. Why?
