Box Office: Despicable Me 2 Grabs $34.3 Million on First Day; No Fireworks for The Lone Ranger

Universal is celebrating a very happy July Fourth this morning, thanks to Despicable Me 2. The animated sequel earned an estimated $34.3 million on its opening day Wednesday – just a bit under the $35 million that The Amazing Spider-Man took in on its first day in 2012. From its 3,957 locations, Despicable Me 2 is now expected to take in as much as $155 million for its first five days, putting it between the Independence Day records of Transformers: Dark of the Moon ($162.6 million) and Spider-Man 2 ($152.4 million) before adjusting for inflation. (Despicable Me 2, Industry, The Lone Ranger)

They assumed a new Johnny Depp film would be enough to pull in the big bucks.

Not against minions but they'll know better next time. I did go see the lone ranger though and I really did like it a lot. The theater was totally full so maybe before the weekend is completely over they will come out looking better.

I heard The Lone Ranger sucked

I would have traded Armie Hammer for someone else, but The Lone Ranger is otherwise good. I guess this means there won't be sequels now. This sucks. Hopefully The Lone Ranger has some stamina at the box-office and gathers in plenty of cash over its entire run though. There could still be hope.
