Disney (DIS) could lose $100M on The Lone Ranger if holiday weekend sales are as weak as some estimates, according to Cowen & Co. The expensive film is having a tough time getting out of the gate with early reviews tipping toward the negative side amid tough competition from family movies Despicable Me 2 and Monsters University. (Reviews: The Hollywood Reporter says it "wobbles and thrashes all over the place" - while The New York Post calls it a "bloated, misshapen mess.")
