‘The Lone Ranger’ international trailer actually looks good

If you can ignore Johnny Depp playing a Native American, The Lone Ranger trailer looks pretty good. I still can’t help but expect him to say, “That’s Captain Tonto.”

It’s taken over five years to get this movie made, so at this point I’d say expectations are pretty low. At least for me as a viewer. If it was going to be amazing they would have gotten it out right away instead of constantly rewriting, delaying, and ignoring it altogether. I’m sure Disney doesn’t feel the same way given that the budget was $250 million. That could be tough to recoup given that none of Johnny Depp’s movies that don’t start with “Pirates” or “Alice” have ever crossed that threshold at the US box office. Luckily for Mickey Mouse, the international crowd loves Depp.
