The Japanese Tonto Poster
Why do I love this Japanese poster for The Lone Ranger? I certainly have a fondness for the old Japanese posters for The Man With No Name trilogy. Something about Spaghetti Westerns scrawled with Japanese lettering just seems right. Tonto here looks really menacing too, the hatchet ready to swing. But the trailers don't jive with the Lone Ranger movie I want. And yes I most certainly want a Lone Ranger movie. Loved the original series as a kid and I even dug the (hindsight being 20/20 atrocious) 80s adaptation. But do I want a Captain Jack version? No. Still, I gotta support the genre I love and I will be there opening night.
