SDCC 2012: Description Of The Lone Ranger Footage

Yesterday at the Disney panel at SDCC 2012 the company showed off some footage from their upcoming movie (with a rather troubled production) The Lone Ranger, and Entertainment Weekly managed to grab a nice description of it. In the footage it was revealed that Johnny Depp’s portrayal of Tonto will speak in broken English, saying, “there come a time, Kemosabe … when good man must wear mask.” The footage was narrated by Tom Wilkinson, who is playing the villain of the film, and featured a quick few snippets of action footage. Read it below:

 “From the time of Alexander the Great, no man could travel faster than the horse that carried him. … Not anymore. … Imagine time and space under the mastery of man — power that makes emperors and kings look like fools. … Whoever controls this, controls the future.”

We see Armie Hammer as the title character, looking disheveled and intense. There’s a bit of gunslinging, and we see Depp’s white-and-black painted Native American warrior hanging beneath a moving train as he uncouples one of the cars.

Helena Bonham Carter turns up in elegant gentlewoman’s finery, and we see a bit of blood splashing on the ground, and some massive train accidents.
