Box Office Results

Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi action flick Elysium (Sony), the director's follow-up to the acclaimed District 9, this one starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, opened on Friday in 3,284 theaters. After grossing $11 million on Friday including Thursday previews, it won the weekend with an estimated $30.5 million or roughly $9,500 per theater with $4.9 million of its domestic opening coming from 328 IMAX screens. That was less than the breakout opening for District 9, which opened in early August 2009 with $37.3 million on its way to a $215 million global box office total. Elysium also opened in 17 markets overseas including Russia, where it opened at #1 with $6.8 million, and in Taiwan, also #1 with $1.7 million, to add another $10.9 million to its domestic take. Sony Pictures International will be expanding Blomkamp's film to more markets over the coming weeks. Check the list for the rest of the top 15 films at the box office and we'll see you guys on friday !

Box Office Results: August 2, 2013 - August 4, 2013

1. "2 Guns,"$27.4 million.
The pairing of Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in the R-rated crime-comedy 2 Guns(Universal) probably could have opened bigger with a summer release, but after taking in $10 million on Friday--$1.3 million of that from Thursday night previews--the superstar pairing settled in for an estimated opening weekend of $27.4 million, which was enough to win the weekend. Even with the added box office star power of Wahlberg, that was a fairly average opening for Washington, yet it represents his sixth movie in a row to open over $22 million.

2. "The Wolverine," $21.7 million ($38.5 million international).
After a relatively weak domestic opening, the superhero sequel The Wolverine (20th Century Fox), starring Hugh Jackman,took a typical second weekend plunge of roughly 59% to take second place with $21.7 million and roughly $95 million total.

3. "The Smurfs 2," $18.2 million ($52.5 million international).
Opening earlier in the week on Wednesday in 3,866 theaters, The Smurfs 2 (Sony), the sequel to Sony Pictures Animation's $563 million global hit, brought in just $9.5 million in its first two days before settling down to third place over the weekend with just $18.2 million. The $27.8 million the sequel earned in its first five days is less than the $35 million the original The Smurfs made in its three-day opening two years ago. 

4. "The Conjuring," $13.7 million ($11.6 million international).
James Wan's horror-thriller The Conjuring (New Line/Warner Bros.)--one of the few movies in the top 10 without a "2" in the title and that isn't a sequel--continues to do well as it crossed $100 million this weekend with an additional $13.6 million, down just 38% from last weekend. With $108.6 million grossed in just three weeks' time, the $20 million-budgeted breakout should be making a solid play to end the summer in the Top 10.

5. "Despicable Me 2," $10.4 million ($13.8 million international).
Despicable Me 2 (Universal) took fifth place--its first time out of the Top 3 since opening over the 4th of July weekend--with $10.4 million as it continued to bolster its standing as the second highest grossing movie of the year with $327 million.

6. "Grown Ups 2," $8.1 million ($2.8 million international).
Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2, followed in sixth place with a solid $8.1 million and a total of $116.4 million, putting it into the Top 10 for the summer. 

7. "Turbo," $6.4 million ($6.9 million international).
Barely motoring along in seventh place, DreamWorks Animation's Turbo added another $6.4 million this weekend, but it also dropped 53% from last weekend and is struggling with just $69.5 million grossed so far.

8. "Red 2," $5.6 million ($9.3 million international).
Bruce Willis' RED 2 (Summit Entertainment), which added another $5.6 million to bring its total to a weak $45.1 million after three weeks in theaters.

9. "The Heat," $4.7 million ($6.9 million international).
Already one of the summer's biggest surprise sleeper hits, The Heat (20th Century Fox), starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, added another $4.7 million over the weekend to take ninth place, bringing its total closer to $149 million, making it the eighth biggest movie of the summer.

10. "Pacific Rim," $4.6 million ($53 million international).
At number 10 is Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim (Warner Bros.), which followed its record opening day in China with a weekend take of $4.6 million, having grossed $92.9 million domestically. This past weekend, the movie debuted at #1 there, grossing $45.2 million, Warner Bros.' biggest opening there and even bigger than The Dark Knight Rises' $32 million opening last year. That helped put Pacific Rim just ahead of The Smurfs 2 to win the international box office this weekend and put its global total across the $200 million mark.
