Well, that settles it. People love pirates more than they love cowboys.
After all, when Johnny Depp dressed up as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean it scored HUGE with audiences, making more than 3.5 BILLION dollars around the world!
But throw a crow on his head and call him Tonto in The Lone Ranger and it seems people don't exactly run to the theaters. Johnny's latest flick has failed to crack even $10 million at the box office so far!
But the weekend is still upon us, kemosabe! And we think there's still hope for Johnny and Armie Hammer's ol' fashioned western.
They'll need all the help they can get from their fans if they want to even come close to making as much as Despicable Me 2. The animated sequel is sitting pretty at $34 million after just two days.
What movie are YOU planning on seeing this weekend???
