New ‘Lone Ranger’ trailer turns Japanese

K. Thor Jensen Contributing Writer, Entertainment

Just because you can’t understand the narrator doesn’t make this any less awesome. You can throw me into the haters camp that didn’t understand why anybody would make a Lone Ranger movie in 2013. The character literally has absolutely no name recognition in a post-Bieber era, and the whole thing seemed like John Carter par two. Well, I’m still tentative but this new international trailer (with Japanese voiceover) has me sold a little more. Yes, Johnny Depp’s bird hat still looks ridiculous but the Gore Verbinski-directed Western looks to have lots of things I like: daring stunts, concealed weaponry and huge explosions. The Lone Ranger opens on July 3rd.
