The Lone Ranger Trailer Charges In
UPDATE: Now in Apple HD!

After our exclusive teaser poster debut yesterday and a whole bunch of stills the day before, a trailer for The Lone Ranger was expected at some point today – and Apple have proved us right

From this footage, it looks like The Lone Ranger is not the particularly kiddy-friendly wander in the desert many though it was – with its Led Zeppelin soundtrack, slow motion shootouts, dark cinematography and bleak Monument Valley landscapes, this is far rougher round the edges than the original radio serial.

After a neat railroad twist on the Jerry Bruckheimer tree ident, the key thing to look out for – or, rather, hear out for – is the voice of Johnny Depp's Tonto. Delivered in a staccato Native American tone, he even calls the Lone Ranger his pet name, Kemosabe, as well as holding unto the bottom of a moving train.

And yes, trains – trains are very much the centrepieces of the feature, with one even screeching on its side towards a building and the voiceover booming about the coming of a new power after centuries of horseback transport. In other words, expect train-based stunts aplenty alongside your regular dose of rootin', shootin' and tootin' (whatever that actually means).

August 9 the UK release date to put in your diaries, with American fans needing only to wait until July 3 for their big screen Lone Ranger goodness.

Jay Silverheels was way cooler
I grew up watching the Clayton Moore/Jay Silverheels tv show. This looks a bit... I don't know what. Why has Depp got a bird on his head? How the hell are the wheels on the locomotive still moving as it slides across the desert floor on its side? If it's such a gritty, tough take on the story, why does the Ranger's hat look like its been whitewashed? Maybe I'm just being picky but this all looks a bit odd. I'm a Depp fan but I'm getting a bit weary of his 'I'm a bit crazy me' schtick. To More

yeesh, that looks... not great. And the rail way being the central plot? Seriously, they couldn't have come up with something a little more inspired? More

n33d: I believe it's for tax purposes. Tonto's aid is regarded as "outsourcing". More
