The Lone Ranger gives Disney a bumpy ride
by Ben Child (from the Guardian)

Johnny Depp-starring western's low box office yield looks set to lose studio more than $150m

I think this is something a lot of people actually saw coming... apart from Disney, it seems, who were blinded by the 'Pirates reunion' factor -- apparently forgetting that the last Pirates only did OK at the US box office; and though it made a shedload around the world, Westerns never do well outside the US... or inside the US, these days.
