One can never say that Denzel Washington does not have staying power. His new movie, 2 Guns, with Mark Wahlberg took it to The Smurfs 2 bringing in $27.3 million. It is a good start for a film that had a modest budget of just over $60 million. Even though The Smurfs return was not that big stateside, it certainly was around the world. The little blue creatures have already grossed $80 million since their worldwide release last Wednesday.

The Wolverine finished in second with $21.7 million which is a decent drop off. There will almost certainly be a sequel to Logan’s story. In two weeks The Wolverine has taken in almost $250 million worldwide against its $120 million budget.

The Conjuring scared its was past the $100 million mark which shows that good reviews and word of mouth are going a long way.
