The second trailer for Gore Verbinski's Lone Ranger does plenty to fill in the blanks when it comes to how these two seeming strangers became partners-in-fighting-crime and it may come as a surprise to know it involved one of them being buried by the other.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer tweeted a link to the new trailer at midnight last night, with this enthusiastic message: "The new trailer is here! I hope everyone is as excited about it as I am. Tell me what you think."
In addition to providing more back story, we find out why a good man like the Lone Ranger decides to wear a mask and why Tonto is wary of his white horse.
The Lone Ranger hits theatres next summer but dig into the second trailer right now.
Johnny Depp is bringing a dash of cool to the book world.
Depp will help run a publishing imprint with the same name as his production company, Infinitum Nihil, meaning Nothing is forever. Already on the list of books is "The Unraveled Tales of Bob Dylan," which aims to set the record straight on the songwriter's enigmatic life and career and will be based in part on interviews with Dylan by best-selling historian Douglas Brinkley.
The imprint will be part of HarperCollins Publishers, which announced Monday that Depp will seek "authentic, outspoken and visionary ideas and voices."
"I pledge, on behalf of Infinitum Nihil, that we will do our best to deliver publications worthy of peoples' time, of peoples' concern, publications that might ordinarily never have breached the parapet," Depp said in a statement released by HarperCollins. "For this dream realized, we would like to salute HarperCollins for their faith in us and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship together."
When director Gore Verbinski last hooked up with Johnny Depp on a movie, the result was the highly inventive, warped and delightfully weird Rango, which went on to win the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film, so getting together again seems like a verifiably good idea.
The first official trailer for their upcoming collaboration, The Lone Ranger, hits all the marks one would expect of the famous American hero fighting injustice in the Wild West; from the masked man himself, Armie Hammer, riding stoically atop his white stallion Silver, to Tonto (a much makeup-ed Depp) calling him Kemosabe to a slo-mo shot of a silver bullet flying through the air, it's all there, and done with the flair and feel of a Guy Ritchie action flick to boot.
The movie also stars Helena Bonham Carter and Tom Wilkinson, who provides the voice-over, Barry Pepper, William Fichtner and James Badge Dale and is scheduled to hit theatres July 2013.

Johnny Depp made a splash at Comic-Con, and he wasn't even there.
About 6,000 fans at the San Diego Convention Center Thursday got the first look at The Lone Ranger, which stars Depp as Tonto.
He wears long hair and full-face makeup to portray the Lone Ranger's Native American companion. The brief clip hinted at the character's craftiness, with one scene showing him riding beneath a speeding train. It also offered a peek at Armie Hammer as the Lone Ranger and Helena Bonham Carter as a dame of interest, amid a backdrop of trains crossing the Western desert. Jerry Bruckheimer is producing the film.
Johnny Depp and his longtime partner, Vanessa Paradis, have split.
A publicist for Depp said in a statement Tuesday that the two "have amicably separated." The statement requested privacy for the former couple and their two children, 9-year-old son, Jack, and 13-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose.
Depp and Paradis met in 1998 but never married during their 14-year relationship. The American actor and the French model-singer lived together with their children in France.
We don't blame you if you've never heard of the TV series "Dark Shadows," which aired between 1966 and 1971, and on which Tim Burton's latest creation is based. It gathered quite a cult following, but that was a long time ago. Fast-forward five decades and Burton is introducing a whole new generation to the creepy, kooky family that clearly played a part in forming his Gothic aesthetic.
The film stars Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins, who was turned into a vampire and buried underground for more than two centuries after unwittingly breaking the heart of a vengeful witch (Eva Green). Finally freed from his tomb he returns to his family home only to find life in 1972 is vastly different than what he recalls from the 1700s. Michelle Pfeiffer plays the household's current matriarch, and one of Barnabas's descendants, who's hired a live-in psychiatrist (Helena Bonham Carter) to help make sense of this dysfunctional family.
Dark Shadows is Burton's eighth collaboration with Johnny Depp and his seventh with his off-screen partner Bonham Carter. We sat down with the director in London to find out more.
It takes a certain twisted, melancholy, big-hearted man to come up with stories about a boy who is cursed with scissors for hands, a skeezy demon who moonlights as a bio-exorcist and a man-child fixated on finding his stolen bike and Tim Burton, with his penchant for telling compelling outsider tales with a macabre twist, is a Hollywood original who has also become a force at the box office.
Your friendly neighbourhood goth follows up on 2010's Alice in Wonderland, the 10th highest-grossing film of all time, with Dark Shadows where he reunites with his near-constant muses Johnny Depp and lady love Helena Bonham Carter for an adaptation of the popular early-'70s soap opera. And Burton is right in his element, perfectly attuned to the story of Barnabas Collins, an ancient vampire who awakens to find that his mansion is in ruins and being run by members of his dysfunctional family, a favourite topic for Burton.
On the occasion of the writer-director's latest theatrical release, we're sharing our picks for the Top 5 Tim Burton Movies and looking at what makes him the goth with the most.
