Earlier this week we were given a first look at the teaser poster for Disney‘s upcoming The Lone Ranger (which you can see for yourself down below). Today, Disney has released the first trailer for the film (courtesy of Apple). For those of you lucky enough to attend Comic Con earlier this year, this is the same trailer featured at the Lone Ranger panel. For those of you who couldn’t make it to the Con, enjoy.
‘The Lone Ranger’ Trailer
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.
Along with Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, the film also stars Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson, William Fichtner, Ruth Wilson, Barry Pepper, and James Badge Dale. The Lone Ranger gallops into theaters July 3, 2013.
‘The Lone Ranger’ Poster
The first thing you notice about the new poster are the eyes and how the blackness around them is a clever combination of the Ranger’s eye-mask and Tonto’s stuffed crow headdress. It’s a neat trick to introduce both characters without creating a crowded poster. It makes sense that you would see a little more of Tonto in the poster than the Ranger; after all, the film will be told from Tonto’s perspective.

Has anybody else noticed that Tonto’s bird moves? Will he have a live crow on his head, or multiple stuffed bird hats for many different occasions? Click the images for larger versions.
