Along with Will Smith and aliens, Johnny Depp has become a reliably entertaining mainstay of the summer blockbuster season.

After his role in the Pirates franchise and in last year's Dark Shadows, he's returning to the multiplex in the big screen adaptation of The Lone Ranger, alongside The Social Network's Armie Hammer.

The Lone Ranger hits cinemas this Friday
