I will admit that I have an irrational hatred of Armie Hammer. I have no idea what the man ever did to earn my ire. Probably nothing. I’m just shitty like that. He does look pretty good as The Lone Ranger though. I have to give him that. The man is a tall drink of water. Mmmm. I’m just not sure that the actual movie will be all that great.
The new trailer has all of the fast cuts, explosions, (supposedly) comedic beats, and introductions of the main characters that a summer action flick is legally bound to include. (I think it’s the law. I’ll get back to you on that.) I’m still not 100% on Johnny Depp as Tonto and his voice in this trailer sounds like his Ed Wood impersonation. We will determine whether The Lone Ranger is Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl fun or Pirates of the Caribbean: Is This The Fourth One? tedious on July 3, 2013.
