Box Office: 'Rango' on track for a lower-than-projected win

rango-lizard.jpgJohnny Depp's " Rango" won the Friday box office, but it came in just under its projected gross with an estimated $9.8 million for opening night. Though it's a favorite for movie critics, many believe that the Gore Verbinski film's humor is slightly more sophisticated than most families expect from an animated film, so word-of-mouth (and word-of-internet) may not be as good as expected.
