'2 Guns' Easily Fires Past 'The Smurfs' — Here's Your Box-Office Roundup

Now that the majority of summer movies have slowed down, it was a slow box-office weekend at theaters. 

Neil Patrick Harris and smurfs returned to theaters while Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington blew up the big screen with "2 Guns."

Last week's big winners "The Wolverine" and "The Conjuring" continue to hold their own with viewers.

Out of the top ten this week are Universal's comic adaptation of "R.I.P.D." After three weekends, the $130 million budget film has earned $48.8 million at theaters.

The Weinstein Company's "Fruitvale Station" dropped 41% earning $2.7 million.

Here are this week's winners and losers in Hollywood:

10. Rounding out the top ten "Pacific Rim" earns $4.6 million in week four. Guillermo del Toro's monster and robot film may have earned less than $100 million domestically, but the film is making a killing overseas having earned more than $200 million. The film's overseas success has sparked rumors of a sequel, which wouldn't be a surprise considering del Toro always hinted toward the film being a series.

9. "The Heat" moves down one spot earning another $4.7 million. After a month and a half in theaters, the comedy has earned $186.3 million for Fox.

8. "Red 2" drops two spots at theaters with $5.7 million. Bruce Willis' sequel to his 2010 film is tracking behind the original. "Red 2" has earned $78.6 million worldwide.

7. DreamWorks Animation's "Turbo" dropped more than 53% and three spots at theaters earning $6.4 million. The animated flick, which cost an estimated $135 million to produce, has earned $125 million worldwide. The film isn't doing as well over seas ($55.3 million) as it has domestically ($69 million). That's not good news for DWA.

6. Adam Sandler's "Grown Ups 2" is still doing well in theaters taking in another $8.1 million after four weeks. The sequel has earned $137.9 million at theaters.

5. Universal just announced "Despicable Me 2" is its most profitable movie ever. After five weeks in theaters, it's still bringing in $10.4 million. Gru and his minions have brought in $713.7 million worldwide.

4. Warner Bros. horror film "The Conjuring" moves down two spots earning $13.7 million. Forget about last month's underwhelming opening for "Pacific Rim." The $20 million film has earned $137.2 million at theaters worldwide.

3. "The Smurfs 2" did not bring in a big haul for Sony Pictures with $18.2 million. That's the smallest opening for a film geared towards kids this year behind DreamWorks Animation's snail film "Turbo" ($21 million). 2011's "Smurfs" debuted to $35.6 million. Early estimates pegged the film to bring in near $30 million.

2. "The Wolverine" just beat out the blue smurfs with $21.7 million in week two. That's nearly a 60% drop from last week. Hugh Jackman's sixth time as Logan is earning more than 60% of its $254 million earnings over seas.

1. Despite some lousy critic reviews, people wanted to see Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg banter in "2 Guns." The Universal film earned $27.4 million, slightly below analyst expectations of more than $30 million.
