Looks like Silver didn't hi, yo, or away this weekend on the silver screen…
Instead, Despicable Me 2 galloped over The Lone Ranger at the box office earning nearly $60 million to Lone Ranger's $19.5 million. After a weak opening, we hoped that the flick would rally this weekend, but it continued to falter.
face paint costs production costs rising over $250 million, this might make Disney rob a train think twice about greenlighting projects that seem like a sure bet.
As for Johnny Depp, we're bummed out that this might mean we won't get to see him as Tonto again, but we're crossing our fingers that this will make some serious wampum overseas.
And of course we fully expect another fourteen Pirates of the Caribbean films!

Armie Hammer came so close and yet so far to playing Batman!
He was cast as the caped crime fighter in George Miller's Justice League Of America - a WB production with a $220 million budget! This movie would have been HUGE! But the 2007 writers strike changed all of that…
Don't feel too bad for Armie, though…
Even though his big break got busted, he landed on his feet with other roles that turned him into a star! But would he consider coming back as Batman for the studio's second shot at Justice League?
When asked about the possibility, Armie said:
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???

Jimmy Kimmel got to kiss one co-star from The Lone Ranger this week. Would he pucker up again for Armie Hammer like he did for Johnny Depp???
There wasn't any kissing but there was a WHOLE lot of telling on Tuesday night!
We always knew Armie's family had some serious cash MONEY but we never knew he was rich enough to grow up IN THE CAYMAN ISLANDS!
Isn't that where millionaires put all their money to avoid paying taxes?
Armie's all grown up now and has been hard at work ever since doing double duty in The Social Network. And after making so many movies, the Hammer needs a friggin' break! He knows exactly what he's going to do in his time off too…
He and his buddies are riding their vespas across the country!
Move over Hells Angels, there's a new motorcycle gang on the roads!
Ch-ch-check out Armie talking about his upcoming scooter excursion! And, see more shots of our new favorite cowboy moseying on into the Kimmel Show studios …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Who wouldn’t want to work with Superman?!
Armie Hammer might just be the victim of green-eyed envy today as it was just announced that he will be joining hunky Henry Cavill in their new, upcoming film, The Man From U.N.C.L.E.!
Set to be directed by Guy Ritchie, the film will be of the spy-thriller genre and a remake of the TV show. Henry’s role was originally meant for Tom Cruise, but it seems Armie is really looking forward to strapping down with the man in the red underwear!
Johnny Depp may be with Amber Heard for now, but look out for Jimmy Kimmel! Talk about chemistry!
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see the super seksi Lone Ranger star riding into the Hollywood stage before planting a big wet one on Jimmy's lips- and then going back for seconds! And thirds!
And for a kiss and a song, Jimmy gets Johnny to open up like no one else!
Did Jack Sparrow come from playing with Barbie? Is Armie Hammer an idiot? Did Johnny abduct One Direction?!

Armie Hammer would have ZERO problem getting most ladies to marry him.
But getting his wife, Elizabeth Chambers, to agree to walk down the aisle took some convincing!
According to Elizabeth, it was ARMIE who desperately wanted to say 'I do'! She told Town & Country magazine:
