The Lone Ranger had a semi-abstract teaser trailer a couple months ago that prominently featured Tom Wilkinson soliloquizing about the railroad, making the movie look a little bit more like a very special episode of Hell on Wheels. The new trailer makes it very clear that the movie is a gigantic new blockbuster western, from the makers of Pirates of the Caribbean. Curiously, the new trailer also vaguely resembles the trailer for Cowboys & Aliens. But director Gore Verbinski made Rango, a legitimate western homage pretending to be a kiddie caper. And this trailer makes it clear that Verbinski is putting the huge Lone Ranger budget to good use. You want an acrobatic train crash? Oh, we’ve got an acrobatic train crash. Watch below:
