I know, Johnny Depp left when he was three, but who cares? He’s one of the biggest stars in the business today and his new flick looks very promising. Just in time for the 4th of July Weekend, too.He has made a lot of strange films over the years and this one — even though it spotlights two American icons, The Lone Ranger and Tonto — it looks weird. Okay, so head for the Malco or wherever you see movies and catch these two. First, Ta-da!
