Worldwide, the box office belonged to the small, blue types called Smurfs, but American audiences seemed more inclined to watch Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington shoot a lot. Action thriller 2 Guns took the top spot across the pond, earning $27.3 million. It displaced The Wolverine, which fell to second and made $21.7 million. The Smurfs sequel still had an impact in the states, though, taking in $18.2 million.

The Conjuring continued to do well, adding $13.6 million in fourth for a current US total of $108.5 million. Rounding out the top five was Despicable Me 2 with $10.3 million.

Grown Ups 2 fell one place to sixth, making $8.1 million, while snail ‘toon Turbo dropped from fourth to seventh, taking in $6.4 million. Red 2 was eighth with $5.6 million, while The Heat was ninth with $4.7 million. Finally, Pacific Rim was 10th, earning $4.7 million, for a running total of $92.9 million in the States - which suggests it might yet squeak past the $100m mark and regain its blockbuster cred.

To see Mark Wahlberg shoot at Smurfs for fun in the full chart listings, head to Box Office Mojo.
