Have you seen the box office numbers? ‘Despicable Me 2’ decimated ‘Lone Ranger’.
When I saw the headline, ‘Despicable Me 2’ Set to Upstage ‘Lone Ranger’, I have to say that I totally believed it.
Solely on the fact that my 43-year-old husband wants to go see it… without the kids.
I mentioned the ‘Lone Ranger’ and he just kind of grunted.
You know, that primal thing men do, as they nod in your direction.
The trailer for Despicable Me 2 came on and next thing you know, he was on YouTube watching video clips.
Steve Carell is priceless as the voice of Gru, with Kristen Wiig lending her voice to Agent Lucy Wilde.
You have to admit, those darn minions are just so friggin cute.
The, “Crumpin’,” line was classic!
I have to admit, I can’t wait to see it in theaters myself.
Box Office Numbers for Despicable Me 2
The sequel to and itself another tentpole 3D production, Despicable Me 2 is set to meet over half it’s production budget of $76 million and come in around $48 million.
As of today, the production has almost doubled its budget in opening numbers with $120 million.
Not bad for opening to only 7 territories.
The Lone Ranger on the other hand, not so much.
Box Office Numbers for The Lone Ranger
The Hollywood Reporter headline reads, “Disney’s big-budget Western may only earn $50 million to $60 million.”
With a budget of $250 million, all I can say is, “Ouch!”
With Armie Hammer in the lead role and Johnny Depp supporting, many thought it was a slam-dunk.
Marketing… will make or break you no matter the project!
Though I’m still excited to see the movie, I can wait for the dvd.
That’s just the way I feel about it!
