One Of My Favorite Properties Of All Time Is Coming To Fruition...


... and frankly it is looking fucking fantastic. The Lone Ranger was and always will be one of the first pop culture properties I can ever remember watching. I also remember being 3 or 4 years old and having the toys & playset for the show, complete with horses Silver & Scout. Tonto & The Lone Ranger are the two first action figures I ever had... before G.I. Joe, He Man, Star Wars and my full on 3 ft metal Voltron robot. Those guys provided me with a ton of memories, and the original show was always on in re-runs during my childhood. So when they announced a reboot of the franchise from Gore Vebrinksi & Jerry Bruckenheimer (the guys behind Pirates of the Caribbean) and said that the movie would star Armie Hammer & Johnny Depp... well, I was in. Plagued by budget issues and other shooting problems in a post John Carter movie making world, the film has been a bit troubled. So when I saw this fantastic new trailer for the film (clocking in at over 2 minutes) I was reassured. As you should be. Can;'t wait for this movie this summer. Enjoy the trailer after the jump...
