Disney, in all their kindness and wisdom, has released three new stills and the first official poster for Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger. The first trailer is due online tomorrow, but for now you can check out these advance images from the production, and click through them for larger HD versions.
The Lone Ranger joins this year's John Carter as one of Disney's most troubled productions, including outright cancellations, budget cuts, budget overruns, scheduling delays and even a recent tragedy in which a crew member died while maintaining one of the film's many sets. Hopefully the finished product will be worth Disney's trouble and reinvigorate the movie western in pop culture consciousness the way that Pirates of the Caribbean rejuvenated the pirate genre.
The Lone Ranger, starring Armie Hammer, Johnny Depp, Ruth Wilson and Tom Wilkinson is scheduled to be released on July 3, 2013.
