The Smurfs brought in the most money at the box office on Friday, Box Office Mojo reports, but it’s too soon to give the children’s movie bragging rights.
The Smurfs brought in an estimated $13.3 million in box office receipts, but Cowboys & Aliens was only $300,000 behind.
Saturday receipts could change this week’s leaders at the movies, and Sunday’s could change them again.
Fandango’s description of The Smurfs is, in part, “When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the Smurfs out of their village, they’re forced through a portal, out of their world and into ours, landing in the middle of New York’s Central Park.”
Fandango’s says of Cowboys & Aliens, in part, “A stranger with no memory of his past stumbles into the hard desert town of Absolution. The people of Absolution don’t welcome strangers, and nobody makes a move on its streets unless ordered by the iron-fisted Colonel Dolarhyde (Harrison Ford).”
