The action-packed trailers for next year’s big summer blockbusters just keep on coming this week, with the latest film to offer up some new footage being The Pirates of the Caribbean director Gore Verbinski’s The Lone Ranger (2013). A brief teaser trailer debuted all the way back in October, and now we have a full two-minute look at this big screen Hollywood re-imagining of the popular 1950s American television series. For the previously uninitiated, The Lone Ranger will see former Texas ranger John Reid (Armie Hammer) join forces with native American ‘spirit warrior Tonto’ (Verbinski regular Johnny Depp) as the two work together to fight corruption in the dangerous canyons and plains of the Wild West.

While Jaden and Willow Smith’s careers have prospered on our TV and Cinema screens respectively in the last couple of years, Will Smith has enjoyed a noticeable absence off it; indeed, the last time we saw him was in 2007’s Hancock. In 2013, he’s teaming up with M. Night Shyamalan and his son Jaden for the futuristic After Earth. Before that though, he’s back saving the world – for what seems like the umpteenth time – as he dons the shades, suit and tie for the third film in the Men in Black franchise. Check out the new trailer and synopsis after the jump.
All good film trailers come in two’s! Not to be outdone by yesterday’s epic 1 minute TV spot of The Avengers, good ol’ Spidey has popped up with some new footage of his own in a brand new trailer. This take is clearly different from Sam Raimi’s earlier trilogy, but it doesn’t look any less impressive. The checkboxes for web-slinging, wall-crawling, and wisecracking are all ticked, and the darker tone may yet prove to be beneficial. With Spider-Man joining The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises in theaters later this year, this summer is shaping up to be particularly epic for comic book fans.
