Why did the Lone Ranger flop?

Johnny Depp knows why the Lone Ranger flopped

Why did The Lone Ranger flop at the US box office? The actors Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer as well as director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer know: the critics are to blame.

A month ago ran Lone Ranger of Gore Verbinski in US theaters and gave Disney a more than meager start. The western ended up at one of Armie Hammer played masked avenger in second place, but he made only $ 30 million on the first weekend. Just a few days later, financial experts spoke of a million dollar grave for Disney, and losses of up to 190 million dollars were talked about. But who is to blame for the fiasco? producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Director Gore Verbinski as well as the main cast Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer know: The US critics are the bad guys.

In an interview with Yahoo Movies, the actors and the makers behind the camera mocked each other for several minutes about the evil critics who make life difficult for them. Johnny Depp related: “I think the reviews were written when they heard Gore and Jerry were filming The Lone Ranger. They immediately expected it to be a blockbuster. I didn't have these expectations. I never have ”. The actor is also certain that the reviews were written seven to eight months before Lone Ranger was released. Armie Hammer agrees with his colleague - despite the energetic cough from his press lady. "Most of the reviews have nothing to do with the content, but rather with what is behind it." By the way, according to Armie Hammer, the critics would have the same thing World War Z tried and would have failed.

Jerry Bruckheimer thinks he knows that the critics did not rate the film, but the budget. That would make him sad because Lone Ranger would be "A terrific film". Director Gore Verbinski felt himself and his film also misunderstood."It is not a sequel, it does not contain any giant robots and the Lone Ranger cannot fly". But that would be exactly the reason why the viewer should go to The Lone Ranger: It would be something different.
