‘The Lone Ranger’ ’Spirit Platform’ Featurette

Armie Hammer braces himself 2,000 feet off the ground in a death-defying scene from director Gore Verbinski’s Western action-thriller, in theaters July 3rd.

Armie Hammer prepares himself for a death-defying scene in a featurette for The Lone Ranger. The actor did not use a stunt double for this shot where he stands atop the Spirit Platform, more than 2,000 feet off the ground, with producer Jerry Bruckheimer and other crew members taking us behind-the-scenes on the Utah set. Watch as Armie Hammer shares his harrowing trip atop the Spirit Platform in this video.

The Lone Ranger was released July 3rd, 2013 and stars Johnny Depp, Armie Hammer, William Fichtner, Tom Wilkinson, Ruth Wilson, Helena Bonham Carter, James Badge Dale, Bryant Prince. The film is directed by Gore Verbinski.

    @bawnian-dexeus Are You referring to what we see at the :16 second mark of the fourth trailer? Also, Your saying that they edited what the rock formation looks like, that the wobbly looking platform is on that he is standing on? I think that is very possible, but again, that might be one of the very few things they edited in the movie with very little cgi. From what I've seen from all the trailers and tv spots from this Lone Ranger movie, I can tell that they have used a lot less cgi then they did for Pirates 1 ten years ago.

    @bawnian-dexeus : No matter what you or anyone eles says Sean is just going to keep on going with his fantasy until reality smacks him in the back ofthe head bringing him back to reality. That is why I stopped dealing with him on this article.

    @themoviefanatic I know it is a real location. The location is not what I was referring to. The camera only recorded him on the platform and on the edge of the rock cliff and that footage was edited on a separate computer generated location. If you look at the second trailer, they did the switch

    @bawnian-dexeus That part in the video that you're referring to where he's standing on that rock, that background you see there in the video is a real location that they are in. There is absolutely no computer effects added to that part in the movie what so ever to the point where there would be a blue screen or green screen, etc. No, the fire you see in the trailers and tv spots, etc, is all real. No CGI was used for that. The horse riding on the train and entering the coach after riding it before the tunnel, Yes that particular part might be CGI, but very little of it involved in that part. Also, yes, Depp walking from one to another train likely also involves CGI as well, but again very little of it. As for the bridge they blew up was not created by CGI, but the train falling was CGI and the explosion in that part was real.

    @themoviefanatic Sean, we get that the trains and stunts are real, but there is still special effects used. The part where Hammer is on top of the rock, the background in the back to make it look like he's there alone, that's added computer effects. The fires are clearly special effects, unless the color palette is dreadful. The horse riding on the train and entering the coach after riding it before the tunnel, that's more CGI, VFX, SFX, or whatever you want to call it. Depp walking from one train to other, the background is green screen. The train riding sides may have been a practical stunt, but was CGI in post. And Sean, they blew up a damn bridge with a train falling, ergo, a lot of graphics. So your 99.99% of zero effects is ridiculous

    @mr-k No, the train sequences are real. No CGI is being used with the trains in the movie. They didn't raise the budget to $250 million, they lowered it from an estimated $250-$300 million down to $215 million. They lowered the budget before they used blue screens for CGI in the movie.

    @themoviefanatic No offense but this movie still uses a lot of CG especially on the train sequences despite that the filmmakers used real trains to film certain sequences. It will be heavy on CG and it should be obvious because Disney raised the budget up to $250 million dollars. Simply put, they used a lot of money for the CG and while Disney may have reduced the price, it will use a lot of CG.

    @mr-k People don't seem to get that there is very very little CGI being used in this movie, and I am trying to explain that to them and they don't seem to get it. Also, that it's production budget was reduced a while back ago from $250-300 million to $215 million.

    @john-m Lol :P . Yes, there will be CGI but not for anything big like you would expect like in a Pirates of the Caribbean movie, that would be noticeable right away being added in with CGI. In the video above you see something with a blue sheet of some sort being covered. I believe that might actually be something they want to block out in the movie, so that it does not end up showing up in the movie accidently. So we will still not notice any CGI in the movie, because 99.99% of the movie will not be CGI.

    @themoviefanatic: Thank for seeing the light, hallelujah. You finally admit there will be CGI and effects in the film. I already know there will be lots of props, sets and other stuff. I did not need you to tell me that. They do that with the majority of films. That is common sense. Thank you for waking up from your dreams and facing reality and seeing the light.

    @bawnian-dexeus Bawnian, I'm Sorry, I know your latest post on here was for Huntsman, but Yes, there are real trains and coordinators for The Lone Ranger movie, as well as actual sets with out cgi being added in.

    @john-m Delusional world? No Delusional world going on with me ;) . But, You know another reason for the $215 million production budget of this movie, is not only be because of the CGI involved in it. I Guarantee you It is likely also because of the sets of the movie and the props in them, the outfits for the cast in the movie, etc. That list could go on for a while, lol :P .

    @john-m Read this article in this website link here > http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/BatFreak/news/?a=80196 , and tell me what you read about what it says about the CGI in the movie. Also, As I have said multiple times below: This movie originally had a production budget that was an estimated $250-300 million dollar production budget. It was lowered to $215 million. So with that said, this movie almost turned out to be another CGI fest like Pirates 3.

    @themoviefanatic: All right I am fully rest, so I can deal with your delusions. Are you really that naive that you actually believe that with a budget of over 200 million dollars that there are no special effects or CGI in the film or is your head so far up Gore's, Depps and Bruckheimer's asses that you just can not see that. I really want to know which it is.

    LOL! Then there is your comment to Corey, which is just hilarious. I don't know which you are above, but please do not change, you are just hilarious.

    @corey Lol :P . You think i am Gore's #1 fan? Well, after it was announced that he wasn't going to direct Pirates 4, i am definitely not his biggest fan or #1 fan. As for your comment from about 11 hours ago, someone did in fact die on the set of The Lone Ranger. Here's an article about it > http://www.deadline.com/2012/09/tragedy-on-the-lone-ranger-as-crew-member-dies/

    @john-m Alright, look, I've told you several times now that, they decided that $250-$300 million as a production budget for the movie was too high. They lowered the production budget because the supernatural wolves, that they were going to have in the movie added in with a bunch of cgi, were taken out of the story/plot because of how much higher it would've made the production budget of the Lone Ranger movie. If you didn't realize that before about the movie and you can't except it, then I really don't know what else to tell you as my answer to your question that I've already answered several times now. I know what your question is and I understood it and I answered it. Also, for all we know, maybe they have it $215 million because of the sets, the outfits and the very little cgi that will be in the movie, the cameras to film the movie, etc.

    @themoviefanatic: Maybe that answers the imaginary question you thought I asked or the one you asked yourself, but that does not answer my question, and that is what I should expect from you. And even your own answer does not make sense nor does it explain why the film has a 200 million dollar budget if it has no effects or CGI. You are just so frustrating, so I think I am done dealing with you for now and movieweb for tonight, and let you go back into your imaginary world that exists inside your head. Maybe sometime tomorrow I will be ready to deal with you and your delusions again.

    @themoviefanatic: You are just so frustrating. No I asked If you right and there are not a lot of CGI or effects in the film than why does the film have a price tag of over 200 million dollars? I was ask if you there are no special effects or CGI in the film than why does it have a budget of 200 million dollars, and no you still have not answered my question. I really want to know what goes on inside your head.

    @john-m Yes it is! You asked me this > "If you're right and there are not a lot of CGI or effects in the film than why does the film have a price tag of over 200 million dollars?" and my post below the post you've just posted is my answer to your question! Anyway, Its $215 million production budget isn't as bad as it would've been, if it had been kept at its estimated $250-300 million original production budget.

    @bawnian-dexeus: Oh I agree and did he really say On Stranger Tides should have a large budget to be a good film. That is just a ridiculous statement. Having a large budget has nothing to do with how good a film will or will not be.
