It's not much of a surprise, but the Denzel Washington-led crime pic "2 Guns" beat out both the other new wide release, "The Smurfs 2," and last week's top movie, "The Wolverine," to take first place at Friday's box office by generating $10 million in ticket sales. "2 Guns" looks set to come close to meeting predictions for the weekend, which had it earning about $30 million. "The Smurfs 2," which opened on Wednesday, fell off the pace considerably by Friday, taking in only about $5.
For the just about the first time this summer, there are no new superheroes, aliens or monsters at the box office this weekend. Only two new movies go into wide release this week, and they're a crime-action flick and an animated kids' movie. Those of you who have a craving for big-budget sci-fi adventure will have to wait until next week, when Matt Damon's "Elysium" debuts. This week, though, you've got Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in "2 Guns," about narcotics agents working to infiltrate a Mexican drug cartel.
