‘The Lone Ranger’ TV Spot Gets You Prepared for the Fourth of July
Disney has released a new TV spot for ‘The Lone Ranger,’ in keeping with the film’s July 3 release date. But there isn’t much — if any — new footage to be seen in this commercial. We get a peek at the familiar train sequence again, which seems like a big selling point for the studio — understandably so, since director Gore Verbinski likely spent a ton of money to execute it. They really need to get as much mileage out of that scene as possible. We also get a moment with Helena Bonham Carter‘s character, who lazily muses about the Lone Ranger’s mask: “Every man has his thing.”
This latest spot is really pushing the Fourth of July angle, promising a story that celebrates the land of the free and the home of the brave for your Independence Day weekend. We’re still not that impressed with what we’ve seen so far — ‘The Lone Ranger’ feels like yet another action adventure flick in which Johnny Depp dons a silly wig, speaks with an accent, and makes goofy faces.
Depp co-stars with Armie Hammer, Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, and Ruth Wilson in the film, which, as previously mentioned, hits theaters on July 3.
