First Trailer for Gore Verbinski's Lone Ranger: The Lone Ranger is a zombie?

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Here's the first ever trailer for Gore Verbinski's Lone Ranger, which is a bit darker and much more supernatural than we expected. Turns out Armie Hammer is a Spirit Walker (a man who can not be killed in battle, and has been to the "other side"). Second big surprise? Johnny Depp doesn't completely walk away with the whole thing as Tonto. So far, we're enjoying the look and zany feel, it's reminds us a whole heap of Verbinski's most recent work in Rango, which is a good thing.

I think I broke my face, wincing at every moment that included Depp.

Is it possible the filmmakers put him in white paint, as some sort of obtuse reference to the fact that he's basically resurrecting the redface tradition of white dudes acting like Native Americans? It's hard to imagine a more stereotypical take. (and don't talk about his lineage...homeboy is as white as me)
