The latest trailer for “The Lone Ranger” is set to be unveiled this afternoon, with stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer participating in a live stream discussion about the clip and the movie, which will kick off at 1 p.m. PDT.

The promotional event comes on the heels of a new wave of character posters the studio released Tuesday — you can see them in the gallery above — and is part of Las Vegas’ CinemaCon, the annual exhibitors’ conference where the studios court the affection of movie theater owners across the country with elaborate presentations for their upcoming films.
Set for release July 3, “The Lone Ranger” sees Depp team up again with his frequent collaborator Verbinski — the pair worked on three of Disney’s ultra-successful “Pirates” films in addition to the acclaimed animated release “Rango.”
Verbinski told Hero Complex in 2011 that he’s interested in a sly, somewhat subversive version of the classic Old West adventure that presents the “faithful Indian companion” as the wry central voice of the story. The plot centers on the advent of the railroad in the American West, and hijackings that ensue.
Disney unveiled its first trailer for “The Lone Ranger” at Comic-Con International in July of last year, then released the clip for general audiences months later in October.
