In a triumph of the human spirit, 2 Guns was the #1 film, beating out two other comic book movies. @ Guns made $27.4 million, which is kinda tepid, but thank god, The Wolveirne was #2 and Smurfs 2 crashed and smurfed:
This 3D hybrid live-action/CG animated sequel couldn’t even make in its first five days ($27.8M) what the 2011 original grossed in its first three-day weekend ($35.6M). Ouch! Guess little blue people creep me out and North Americans, too. The domestic total fell way short of the $35M first projected by the studio which blames too many PG films at the multiplex. But even the foreign cume was blah: $52.5M from 43 territories was “not enough to make up for U.S. underperformance,” a Sony exec tells me. That’s a worldwide total of $80.3M, far less than the $100M which Sony projected this weekend.
Clearly, normal humans were terrified of this hideous film, just as the Beat was.
