Summer Box Office Winners and Losers: 'Man of Steel,' Will Smith, 'After Earth'
Plus: Horror and comedies make their summertime mark
Losers: Everyone associated with 'The Lone Ranger'
One of the biggest misfires of the summer, Gore Verbinski's reboot of the classic Western hero has earned only $230 million worldwide including a tepid $87 million domestically. That would be disappointing for any Johnny Depp tentpole, but when the movie cost $215 million? That's a disaster. What made matters worse was the cast attempting to blame movie critics, who weren't really fans, for its terrible performance. Not only was it not true, but it was unbecoming such a normally classy group.
