A new, extended trailer for Johnny Depp's Lone Ranger flick has been released—and it's definitely starting to look like Pirates of the Caribbean, cowboy edition. Want to see?

Considering that this one comes from Depp's old Pirates pals Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski, it definitely has that big, fun Disney-movie vibe. It has a mystical steampunk feel, with a heavy dose of Wild Wild West (but seemingly not terrible).

Here's the official synopsis:

The Lone Ranger is a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought to life through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice--taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.
