Product Description

Bringing The Long Ranger to the big screen was an epic odyssey for all involved, plagued by freak weather conditions, unforgiving terrain, and a never-ending stream of logistical nightmares. Nevertheless, the hardy crew, led by director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer – both veterans of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies – persevered to deliver a hugely ambitious and breathlessly entertaining blockbuster that defies all expectations. The Lone Ranger: Behind the Mask tells the gripping story of this fraught yet fulfilling journey and the people who made it happen, from stars Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp, to the costumes designers, makeup artists, production designers, and other key crew members.

Taking in the dust-blown sets in Albuquerque, the epic vistas of Monument Valley, and the sound stages of Los Angeles, this is the complete story of a truly epic production augmented by stunning photography and concept art, along with candid snapshots from the crew. Also featuring afterwords by Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, an introduction by Gore Verbinski, and a special photo foreword from Jerry Bruckheimer, The Lone Ranger: Behind the Mask is the ultimate companion to the most exciting film of 2013.

Editorial Reviews

Express Milwaukee: “More than a film tie-in coffee table book. It’s a history of the mythic character as well as a convincing text on America’s romance with the Old West . . . We have a brilliant, second opportunity in print to get the right take on the tale that has finally taken a proper turn.”
