Sneak Peek new character posters from director Gore Verbinski's "The Lone Ranger".

The new film stars Johnny Depp as Native American 'Tonto' and Armie Hammer as Texas lawman 'John Reid'.

"The Lone Ranger" wrapped in and around Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Shiprock and other locations in New Mexico, August 2012.

"The Lone Ranger", was originally a radio show created by George W. Trendle and Fran Striker.

The premise of a vigilante, masked 'Texas Ranger', his horse 'Silver' and 'Indian' companion 'Tonto', was then adapted for pulp magazines and a popular TV series.

Episodes usually ended with a character lamenting the fact they never found out the hero's name ("Who was that masked man?"), only to be told, "Why, that was the Lone Ranger!"

Theme music used for both the radio and TV series was the "cavalry charge" finale of composer Gioacchino Rossini's "William Tell Overture".
