How "Despicable Me 2" thrashed "The Lone Ranger" in US box office

The past week was filled with interesting news for Hollywood, since two of summer's most awaited movies premiered in US cinemas. The first is "Despicable Me 2" from Illumination Entertainment and the second was Disney's blockbuster "The Lone Ranger".


Their battle ended with the first trashing completely the second, since Despicable Me 2 (with Steve Carell starring) had almost 82.5 $ million in tickets in the first 2 days it was released and almost 142.1$ million during its first week. On the other hand, Disney's western with Johny Depp and Armie Hammer (costing almost 215$ million) had 29,4$ million in its first 3 days and only 48,9$ million during its first week. Things look grimmer for the Lone Ranger since next week Pacific Rim is being released in US cinemas something that will make it more difficult to increase its earnings.
