Disney's live-action epic, "Lone Ranger" has bombed at the box office. Turns out the kids aren't digging the 1950's pop culture icon with the mysterious past and a penchant for silver bullets. $250+ mill is a steep losing bet for a company known for animated pabulum. The Walt Disney Studios will now leave bloody, live-action pictures to the grown-ups.
And casting a white-bread Hollywood screen idol as the notable stoic Native American sidekick did not help.
