On its first day of release, “Despicable Me 2” exceeded expectations, earning a little over $34 million its opening day. Featuring the voices of Steve Carell, Benjamin Bratt, Kristen Wiig and more, that puts the film on pace for a huge opening this weekend. Meanwhile, Disney’s “The Lone Ranger” starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer will be another disappointment, earning a little less than $10 million. This won’t be “Battleship” or “John Carter” bad but this one is bombing badly.
