      @mr-k $34 Million as an estimate is slightly better then, what i remember reading on other websites which i believe was an estimate around $29 million-$30 million for The Lone Ranger. I could be wrong though.

        @felipe-11 Don't worry with a budget of nearly 300 million dollars Lone Ranger is doomed. Not to mention it will be lucky to even make 100 million domestically total.

          I think a little more than expected for all movies on this list

            Man, I hope The Lone Ranger flops hard... I want Disney to learn a f*cking lesson before they start Tron 3 and Star Wars 7.

              Kevin Hart; Let Me Explain sold out every show at my theater last night. I think it'll do better than 8 mil.

              Then again, it might be a limited-release, but I'm not sure on that.

                The Lone Ranger in second place? I doubt it.

                  I get the feeling that even movieweb is enjoying this.

                    5 day total of 34.3 million for Lone Ranger? While I know it is suppose to be very low I doubt it will be that low. More like 40 to 45 million. Still a massive bomb either way.
