Walt Disney Co. reported a small increase in net income for its fiscal third quarter, lifted by the performance of its media networks and theme parks, the Los Angeles Times reported . But gains in those areas were blunted by the performance of Disney's movie studio, which posted a 36% decline in operating income from a year earlier -- mostly because of weaker box-office results and marketing costs associated with “The Lone Ranger. " Disney Chief Financial Officer Jay Rasulo said on a conference call with analysts that the company expects to lose $160 million to $190 million on "The Lone Ranger" -- results that would be reflected in its fourth-quarter earnings.
