‘The Lone Ranger’ Didn’t Do Very Well At The Box Office

Here's Johnny Depp waiting outside Hollywood hotspot Spago waiting for the valet to bring his car around.  

Because sometimes on Mondays we like to take delight in hating things, we’ve got some news on The Lone Ranger‘s less-than-stellar box office box. The $250 million film managed to snag less than $50 million over a five-day weekend. Possibly because they didn’t like Johnny Depp’s hat, or possibly because they liked his bird hat so much that they didn’t see the movie out of fear that something in the film would damage it.

Considering this project could become a huge write-off for Disney, it’s likely that many of the bird hat films that have been bandied about could be axed. That would mean that all the test footage of Bryan Cranston wearing a peacock on his head in the final episodes of Breaking Bad might never see the light of day, and that episode of Friends where Joey wears the turkey on his head might even be pulled from syndication.
