Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer star in this action Western from Walt Disney Pictures, directed and co-produced by Gore Verbinski. Native American Tonto (Depp) tells the story of how lawman John Reid (Hammer) became the legendary, masked figure known as the Lone Ranger. Tonto first encounters Reid when captured outlaw Butch Cavendish (William Fichtner) escapes custody, aided by his gang. Joining a group of Texas Rangers that include his brother Dan (James Badge Dale), Reid chases the wanted men but becomes the sole survivor of an ambush attack. Disguising himself from his enemies, who believe him to be dead, the Lone Ranger forms an unlikely partnership with Tonto and together they fight for justice against Cavendish and power-hungry railroad tycoon Latham Cole (Tom Wilkinson).
