The Lone Ranger: Final Preview

"A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust, and a hearty "Hi-ho, Silver, away!" The Lone Ranger!" 

The Daily Zombies takes a Final Look at Gore Verbinsky's film adaptation of The Lone Ranger with the film hitting the big screens today. 

Easily one of the biggest tentpole films this Summer, Gore Verbinsky's modern retelling of the adventures of the eponymous iconic American Old West hero has unfortunately been ear-marked by many speculators to be one of the biggest flops of the year. With The Lone Ranger's well-documented tumultuous production process, we should be glad enough that the film can actually get out of the development hell that it has been in for one hell of a long time. After all, this is the first theatrical appearance of The Lone Ranger in 32 years.

With both Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp in the roles of respectively, The Lone Ranger and Tonto, it goes without saying that Disney fully intend to reignite the enthusiasm and its associated goodwill from their box-office stomping trilogy of Pirates of the Carribean here with the team of frequent collaborators Verbinsky and Depp. While productions of the film experienced an officially announced delay as close as less than two years ago by Disney CEO Bob Iger and then studio chairman Rich Ross, the problem was resolved the old-fashioned way with Verbinski, Bruckheinmer, Depp, and Hammer deferring 20% of their respective salaries to further minimize the cost.

Now that the film is on track for the much-coveted Independence Day, we don't see how Verbinsky and Depp can miss the mark with this one unless words of mouth got phenomenally bad. Being a big fan of the original television series produced in the 50s, we are certainly intrigued with a modern take on the adventures of Ke-mo sah-bee and his trusty Native American sidekick, Tonto, roaming the good ol' West for truth, justice, and the American way.

Hit the jump to check out the final trailer (incidentally covered by us earlier last month).

Indicative of the practical approach on the stunts and production of the film, here are some of the more exciting featurettes focusing on the stunts and the "cowboy bootcamp" where most of the cast attended.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

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.

Starring Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Ruth Wilson, and Helena Bonham Carte, The Lone Ranger is now available at any fine theaters.
