Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer star in The Lone Ranger. And we've got the first poster for it right here...

Yesterday, we pondered just why the upcoming movie of The Lone Ranger was costing a quarter a billion dollars to make. Today, we might get a hint of an answer to that.

Starring Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, William Fichtner, Tom Wilkinson and Helena Bonham Carter, The Lone Ranger is directed by Gore Verbinski, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, and set for summer 2013. Pop back later if you fancy seeing the trailer…
