Johnny Depp Defends The Lone Ranger And Calls Out Critics For Hating It!

Johnny Depp is usually money in the box office bank when it comes to making movies! He’s had countless blockbusters likes Pirates of the Caribbean, Alice in Wonderland and Edward Scissorhands!

So what went wrong with The Lone Ranger?

Just as we suspected, Johnny doesn’t really care!

He’s standing by his western remake no matter what! Even if ticket sales are less than stellar. (Srsly though, most theaters showing this flick are so empty, they have tumbleweeds blowing through them!)

The UK got their chance this week to see Johnny and Armie Hammer up on the big screen together, and that’s when the Tonto trouper got asked why he thought the film was failing. Johnny said:

“I don’t have no expectations. But other people do. I think critics were especially upset that it didn’t REALLY tank. You know what I mean? I think they were hoping that it would really take a dive.”

Even though The Lone Ranger will be hitting a lot more theaters around the globe now, we’re still not so sure they can make up the money they spent on this flick! We hear Disney stands to lose more than $160 million on the movie!

Ouch! That is no good, kemosabe!

But sometimes it’s not about the money. It’s about the passion, and Johnny clearly had it for this one!
