Weekend B.O. Aug. 2-4 (The Calmer Month Arrives)

August is usually the “calmer” month of the summer film season. By then, the humongous CGI bloated, tentpole movies have come and gone (sometimes sooner than expected), and more adult films slowly, but blessedly, begin to appear leading up to the fall film season.

And the first hint of this more mature film season to come is the Denzel Washington/Mark Wahlberg actioner 2 Guns , which topped this week’s weekend B.O. chart with a respectable $27 million, while The Wolverine held on to the No. 2 slot.

The Heat in the meantime is almost at the $150 million mark and The Conjuring still has strong legs heading to an eventual $150 million tally as well. However Pacific Rim is barely struggling to hit the $100 million mark, though the film has grossed over $140 million overseas to date.

Meanwhile Fruitvale Station slipped out of the top ten, but is still doing strong on just under 1100 screens with almost $11 million so far at the box office.
