The Smurfs top Cowboys and Aliens, Captain America at the box office

At first thought, you probably wouldn’t think there’s anything similar between lil blue critters, space aliens, old western cowboys, and patriotic super soldiers. And yet, all of them crammed into the top three spots at the box office this weekend. Captain America: The First Avenger took third in the group with $25 million, and the other two films, Cowboys & Aliens and The Smurfs, each raked in more than $36 million in their premiere weekends. Sure, there was still a Harry Potter and a Transformers in there, but there’s three new bosses on top. Any of this ticket money belong to you?

The Smurfs – $36,200,000
Cowboys & Aliens – $36,200,000
Captain America: The First Avenger – $24,905,000
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 – $21,925,000
Crazy, Stupid, Love. – $19,300,000
Friends with Benefits – $9,300,000
Horrible Bosses – $7,100,000
Transformers: Dark of the Moon – $5,970,000
Zookeeper – $4,200,000
Cars 2 – $2,301,000
