Yee-haw!

Walt Disney released this week the first official trailer for The Lone Ranger, teasing an epic Western filled with bullets, adventure and, yes, Johnny Depp in full-on makeup.

Only a handful of frames are shown of Depp, who plays Native American spirit warrior Tonto, and and his co-star, Armie Hammer, who plays the film’s title character; instead, we’re treated to slow-motion bullets, Helena Bonham Carter and a long-winded voiceover by Tom Wilkinson.

Still, there are enough goodies going on in this 90-second-plus preview to get fans excited for the film’s July 3, 2013 release date.

The film reteams Depp with Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski, and tells the tale of John Reid’s (Hammer) epic fight against greed and corruption out West.
