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.
