Johnny Depp - Johnny Depp's Lone Ranger Horse Fall Caught On Film

Video footage of Johnny Depp's horrific fall from a horse on the set of new movie The Lone Ranger has been released as part of a behind-the-scenes preview.

The actor revealed last year (12) he was left battered and bruised when he was thrown from his steed, Scout, while shooting the Disney adaptation of the classic Tv show.

Studio bosses have now unveiled a clip of the horrifying accident, which begins with the star riding horseback through the desert alongside Armie Hammer as the Lone Ranger.

Depp is seen losing his grip, tumbling off and being dragged along by the galloping horse, then crashing to the ground as panicked crew members rush to his aid.

The promo also shows Depp back on his feet examining his injuries, and later joking, "Can I tell you what the positive thing is? That my coccyx didn't take it. Chicks dig a broken bone."

Depp, who plays the Lone Ranger's sidekick Tonto in the adventure movie, previously insisted he was "lucky to be here" after his close call.

He said, "I've done a number of films on horseback and I've taken a couple of spills but this was a violent one. I had a good relationship with the horse, whose name is Scout, and when I look at the tape I can see that Scout saved my life. I went down badly and I was dragged for 25 yards and in the end the horse jumped over me and just clipped me with his back legs."
