The first full-length trailer for director Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger has arrived, featuring Armie Hammer as the eponymous masked man and Johnny Depp as his faithful sidekick, Tonto, riding through some stunning Western scenery in what looks like a railroad adventure.
The Huffington Post UK first saw Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp filming in Monument Valley, Utah, back in April, with the help of a helicopter to capture the breathtaking huge rocks and vast landscape featured in the film.
The finished flick, now in post-production, was shot over the course of 150 days and cost Disney a reported $250 million to produce.
Jerry Bruckheimer was the man in charge and the film also features Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson, Barry Pepper and Harry Treadaway.
The highly-anticipated flick is a big screen re-boot of the story that first appeared in 1933 in a wildly popular radio show which spawned an equally popular television show that ran from 1949 to 1957, as well as comic books.
There have also been two previous attempts at Lone Ranger - on film in 1981 and as a TV movie in 2003, but with Depp on board can this version finally reach blockbuster status?
The Lone Ranger is out in cinemas on 9 August 2013.
