Watch: Full 'Lone Ranger' trailer

What the first "Lone Ranger" trailer had in tight pacing and explosions, the second clip has in plot.

The full trailer for next summer's "Lone Ranger" landed on Tuesday, and it gives us a luxurious two-and-a-half minutes to see how Armie Hammer's Lone Ranger, John Reid, and Johnny Depp's Tonto first started on their quest to deliver justice.

Thanks to the Ranger's rapid-fire questions about how came to wake up alive and covered in dirt, Tonto gives us the backstory.


"I buried you," Tonto tells our titular cowboy. "Eight men rode into canyon. I dug seven graves. Horse says you are a spirit walker, man who has been to the other side and returned. A man who can not be killed in battle."

Given that people think John Reid's dead, Tonto says it's better if it stays that way - hence the mask our Wild West hero wears.

Depp is re-teaming with director Gore Verbinski for this action epic, which will stride into theaters July 3. Has the full trailer enticed you to check it out?

    To make a western today you need a track record of making$$$$ for the studio, then they will give you almost $300 million to do your pet project, "LONE RANGER" This Summer I chased around the West and am proud to say that $300 million supported a lot of towns and people in the Western USA this past Summer and Fall, In a little town of Creede, Colorado they shot important parts of this movie and spent $7 million in a few weeks. the plot is based on the original story, based on all the great locations this movie will show the American west much like John Ford had done in the past, the script and music will be geared for 2013, so chill and enjoy this ride,, this is a Western not a Space movie and remember when he is on his game J. Depp can be the man of the moment on screen.
