I think they'd have better luck if they tried to pass it off as "The Social Network 2"

IGN News : Depp Blames Critics For Lone Ranger Debacle

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtpTv2Mhi-o

Haven't seen the movie, but to blame critics for the movies failure is a bit of an over reach. Ironically enough, I still intend to check this out on DVD.

Good read there. Hey, it even made me want to go back and read my own review for John Carter, which I couldn't remember doing in the first place. Hahaha.

I remember liking the end of Carter, but the problem with that movie was... its' time had passed, they'd been trying to make that movie for decades and decades, and in that time, its' influence drained into other projects (like Star Wars), so when they finally made it, it seemed derivative instead of groundbreaking.  Watchmen had that issue too in a smaller sense.

And of course, my perception of Dejah Thoris was skewed because I remember all those great illustrations (including J Scott Campbell's recent ones) and then you just see some woman with a bunch of tattoos... not exactly an icon brought to life.

Depp has nothing to lose out of this. He threw his comment out there. From what im hearing, Depp was excellent. Everything else sucked. No risk yo him, his career or earnings

I think Depp "stepping up" is more of a favor to Verbinski and Bruckheimer than anything else. But it's still going to reflect poorly on him, but not his bank account, that's for sure.

I think the comment will reflect poorly on him... a little. But overall, the Lone Ranger will be a blip in his career.

Was this man the real life Lone Ranger?.  See, why couldn't we see THIS movie?  THIS sounds interesting.
