Actor Johnny Depp says he knows why Disney’s “The Lone Ranger” bombed at the box office. He revealed:

I think the reviews were written seven to eight months before we released the film. I think the reviews were written when they heard Gore [Verbinski] and Jerry [Bruckheimer] and me were going to do The Lone Ranger. They had expectations that it must be a blockbuster. I didn’t have any expectations of that. I never do.

Jerry Bruckheimer also spoke about the film’s poor reviews, telling Yahoo UK:

I think they were reviewing the budget, not reviewing the movie. The audience doesn’t care what the budget is—they pay the same amount if it costs a dollar or $20 million. It’s unfortunate because the movie is a terrific movie, it’s a great epic film. It has lots of humor. Its one of those movies that whatever critics missed in it this time, they’ll review it in a few years and see that they made a mistake.

“The Lone Ranger” cost $250 million to make and only grossed $86 million in the US. Do you think there should be a sequel movie? take the poll below to let us know!
