At multiplexes all over the nation over this Fourth of July holiday, Despicable Me 2 stood triumphant over The Lone Ranger.
British actress Ruth Wilson is about to make her big budget American film debut with The Lone Ranger, but TV audiences know he best has the devious Alice Morgan on Luther.
The two-time Olivier Award winner first gained the attention of British audiences for her title role in the mini-series Jane Eyre, for which she earned a Golden Globe-nomination. She has appeared on the British stage in countless plays including A Street Car Named Desire, and Anna Christie, for which she won her two Olivier Awards. She was also featured in the AMC TV mini-series The Prisoner, as well as the 2012 film Anna Karenina with Keira Knightley. But is her role on Luther opposite actor Idris Elba that has gained her the attention of Hollywood and fans around the world. The popular detective series is currently in its third season in the UK, and will begin airing on BBC America in the fall. There have been several rumors that the new season will lead up to a feature film based on the show, as well as a possible spin-off series for Wilson centered on her character. But before that, you can see the talented actress playing Armie Hammer’s love interest in the new Western The Lone Ranger, which opens in theaters on July 3rd, and also stars Johnny Depp.
The new film, which is based on the classic Western character, centers on Native American warrior Tonto’s (Depp) recounting of the untold tale of how John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, was transformed into the legendary hero of justice called The Lone Ranger. The two unlikely heroes must now learn to work together in order to fight against greed and corruption in the Wild West. Wilson plays Rebecca Reid, the wife of Dan Reid (James Badge Dale) and sister-in-law of John Reid, who must care for her only son in the wake of her husband and brother-in-law’s apparent deaths. In addition to Wilson, Depp, Hammer, and Dale, the movie features an excellent cast that includes William Fichtner (The Dark Knight), Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins), Barry Pepper (True Grit), and Helena Bonham Carter (Les Miserables). The Lone Ranger was produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Gore Verbinski, the team responsible for the first Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy.

For almost 30 years 3-time Oscar-nominated actor Johnny Depp has been entertaining people around the world with his unorthodox approach to playing interesting and offbeat characters.
He began his career with a small but pivotal role in the horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street, and later in director Oliver Stone’s Vietnam masterpiece Platoon, before becoming a teen idol on the popular ‘80s TV series 21 Jump Street. Rather then capitalizing on his fame, Depp focused on playing challenging characters on the big screen in a string of acclaimed films including Edward Scissorhands, What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Ed Wood, Dead Man, Donnie Brasco, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Sleepy Hallow, Chocolat, and Before Night Falls. But it was his unusual turn as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl that earned him his first Academy Award-nomination for Best Actor and made him one of the most popular movie stars on the planet.
Since then he has earned two more Oscar-nominations for his work in Finding Neverland, and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, and has gone on to appear in such popular films as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Public Enemies, Alice in Wonderland, The Tourist, Rango, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, as well as a cameo reprising his role as Tom Hanson in the big screen version of 21 Jump Street. In addition to acting, Depp also wrote and directed the 1997 movie The Brave with screen legend Marlon Brando, and produced such films as The Rum Diary, Dark Shadows, and Martin Scorsese’s Hugo. Now Depp is taking on the coveted role of Tonto in the latest film adaption of The Lone Ranger, which he also executive produced and opens in theaters on July 3rd.
