With Despicable Me 2 tracking strongly among moviegoers -- analysts are predicting it could earn as much as $110-115 million by Sunday -- and with strong holdover competition, The Lone Ranger could wind up with as little as $65-70 million over the five-day Fourth of July holiday, according to some forecasts. Universal's animated film is receiving mixed initial reviews even from individual critics. Stephen Holden in The New York Times, for example says that it is consistently diverting and so cute you'll want to pet it. Yet it is also weightless and lacks a center. Peter Debruge in Variety remarks that the sequel is endearing if slightly less inspired than the original. And Michael Rechtshaffen writes in the Hollywood Reporter that while the movie lacks the inspired Spark of its predecessor, there's still plenty to enjoy here, thanks, he writes to an irresistible Looney Tunes-style nuttiness that makes up for the absence of a more substantial plotline.
Timed to coincide with the start of the holiday season, when sales of digital 3D television sets are expected to take off, Warner Bros. is releasing six 3D videos packaged with standard 2D DVD discs. The special packages, which will retail at an SRP of $44.95 each, will include Cats & Dogs The Revenge of Kitty Galore ; Clash of the Titans ; The Polar Express ; IMAX Deep Sea 3D ; IMAX Under the Sea 3D ; and IMAX Space Station 3D . It had previously been announced that several of the films would be included individually with new 3D television sets from Sony and LG. The Cats & Dogs The Revenge of Kitty Galore package will also include a Looney Tunes 3D short, Coyote Falls , which was also attached to the theatrical release of the movie. The films are set to hit retail shelves on Nov. 11.
