Official 'Lone Ranger' Trailer: Jack Sparrow & 'The Shadow Guy' (VIDEO)

Flicks 2

the lone ranger trailer tkYou know how sometimes you're just so incredibly impressed by something or someone that you don't even know what to say? Well, I was starting to feel that way yesterday about The Lone Ranger when they released all those crazy amazing stills. Now, today -- the OFFICIAL TRAILER is here, folks, and I am officially at a loss for words.

So, rather than ramble on yet again about Johnny Depp's exquisite beauty and incomparable talent, I decided to ask a bonafide member of The Lone Ranger's target audience for his opinion of the trailer: My (almost) 7-year-old son. (Who thinks Johnny Depp's name is Jack Sparrow, FYI.) I mean, if a 7-year-old boy isn't blown away by the trailer for a cowboy movie, well ... can you say box office bad omen?!

Anyway, here's what my son Julian (the aspiring film critic) had to say about The Lone Ranger trailer:

Julian: "I like that one shadow guy."

Me: "Which one is the shadow guy?"

Julian: "Wait, play it again. Okay, not that guy ... not Jack Sparrow ... that one! With the mask!"

Me: "Oh, The Lone Ranger! But don't you think Jack Sparrow looks cool with that makeup on?"

Julian (giving me a strange look): "Yeah, I guess so. But I like that mask guy. And the horses are cool."

Me: "Okay, anything else?"

Julian: "I mean, I think I'm gonna like this movie, but it's never gonna be my favorite."

Me: "Because Jack Sparrow's face is all covered in makeup?"

Julian (giving me a strange look): "Can I go do my homework now?"

Um, maybe you better just watch and decide for yourself:

So, whaddya think?

Will The Lone Ranger ever be YOUR favorite movie?

I disagree that the "target audience" is the seven-year-old boy. There is no real need to argue the point; this is a non-animated Disney movie. The target is everyone.

I think Johnny Depp looks awesome, as usual! He never chooses the obvious role anyway. He needs and thrives on different. It's one of the reasons we love him. The trailer is well done and conservative. It doesn't give everything away like some do lately. So... I'm interested. Then again, when am I not interested in anything and everything Depp does? Therefore, I will happily convince my family to go to the movies to see a classic hero like the Lone Ranger. Of course, I am secretly on my way to enjoying another glimpse of Johnny Depp and his magic appeal.

Hopefully, Armie Hammer can keep up with Depp. If he can't, the movie will only be as successful as Depp's fans are loyal.
