Though it is getting only middling reviews, 2 Guns made the top spot at the box office, making a good bid on its $61 million budget with an estimated $27.4 million. It was not as good a debut as The Wolverine, which had to settle for second and a heavy drop-off, earning an estimated $21.7 million. While already a money maker worldwide, it remains to be seen (though likely) if it will be a domestic winner. The Smurfs 2 also looks likely to see a worldwide profit, but between poor reviews and an estimated $18.2 million weekend debut, it probably will not make back its $105 million stateside.

The Conjuring made an estimated $13.7 million, breaking the $100 million barrier and a success with critics and audiences alike. Despicable Me 2 made an estimated $10.4 million, though as it remains the second highest earning film of the year, any profit from here on out simply becomes bragging rights…rights it certainly has over Turbo, »
