According to the The Lone Ranger reviews, the movie was awful. According to almost everyone who saw the film, the movie was awful. 

It had moments that were watchable, even entertaining, but in the end, the overall picture was one that didn't quite measure up to the legend and history of The Lone Ranger.

Therefore, it failed. Spectacularly.

That isn't stopping Lone Ranger stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, from going on record as blaming the critics and their negative reviews for their box office failure.

As you can see, it isn't just the film's stars!

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Gore Verbinski got in on the fun as well. Did these four all meet out in the hallway and synchronize their watches or something?

Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer in The Lone Ranger

The Lone Ranger is a big screen adaption of the classic 1940s TV and radio series. It will produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Gore Verbinski. Said the former to Entertainment Weekly awhile back:

"When the idea came up [for the movie], I started thinking about Tonto and what could be done in my own small way try to reinvent the relationship to attempt to take some of the ugliness thrown on the Native Americans - not only in The Lone Ranger, but the way Indians were treated throughout history of cinema - and turn it on its head."

Are you excited for The Lone Ranger remake?

Johnny Depp is having problems with long-time girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, according to tabloid reports.

But there are no such issues between the A-lister and the American public, the results of a new Harris Poll make clear: Depp has been voted the country's favorite actor for the second year in a row.

Depp tops the ball over two second-place heavyweights, Denzel Washington and Clint Eastwood; while Tom Hanks and, apparently, John Wayne round out the top five.

Completing the top 10, in order of finish: George Clooney, Sandra Bullock, Harrison Ford, Will Smith and Adam Sandler, meaning no voters actually saw Jack and Jill.

Do you agree with these results? Who from the top five, is your favorite?

Johnny Depp, who took audiences inside the world of Hunter S. Thompson in 1998's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, returns to that warped paradise again this week.

The Oscar winner stars in The Rum Diary, based on Thompson's novel by the same name and centered around a journalist named Paul Kemp (a.k.a. Thompson).

Depp recently took THG's partner site, Movie Fanatic, on a journey to the alcohol-soaked paradise in Puerto Rico ... not literally, sadly. But he talked all about it.

This is a special film for Depp, who found the manuscript for what would be one of Thompson's final books, and for whom portraying his close friend is a true honor.

Watch The Rum Diary trailer below, then follow the link for Movie Fanatic's one-on-one interview with Johnny Depp himself, the actor who carries on Hunter's legacy ...

Johnny Depp has found his Lone Ranger in Armie Hammer.

The 24-year-old, who portrayed Mark Zuckerberg's nemeses the Winklevoss Twins in The Social Network, will play the masked hero in Disney’s adaptation of The Lone Ranger, with the legendary Depp alongside him as Tonto.

Gore Verbinski, who directed Depp in Rango and the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies, will helm the film, with Jerry Bruckheimer producing.

Unlike in the iconic 1950s TV show, Depp’s Tonto will be more than The Lone Ranger’s mere sidekick. When the idea came up [for the movie], Depp started thinking about Tonto and what could be done to "reinvent the relationship."

The star, who is part Native-American, says the film is his way of trying to re-shape the way they are treated throughout cinema, and to "turn it on its head.”

Hammer can also be seen in Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar as Clyde Tolson, an FBI official who some say was romantically involved with FBI director J. Edgar Hoover (Leonardo DiCaprio). The biopic is scheduled for a December release.
