New Lone Ranger poster revealed

The Lone Ranger , Disney's big-budget revamp of the fondly remembered TV and radio serial, has revealed a new poster online.

It’s hardly the most inspiring piece of promo art, taking a variant of a much-seen still and slapping a title and star names on it.

Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp do at least look cool as the titular lawman and Native American spirit walker, and the scratchy finish and punky fonts hint at a slightly anarchic aesthetic. It lacks the brio of the teaser poster though...

The film follows Hammer’s left-for-dead man-of-the-law John Reid and his quest for justice. After being discovered by Tonto (Depp), Reid decides that his best option for justice involves wearing a mask.

Check out the poster in full below:

Tom Wilkinson’s railroad tycoon is the villain of the piece, with Helena Bonham Carter, Ruth Wilson, William Fichtner and James Badge Dale rounding out the cast.

Directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, The Lone Ranger opens in the UK on 9 August 2013.

And in case you needed reminding, cool guys don't look at explosions...
