BOX OFFICE: 2 GUNS Takes #1 With $27.3 Million; THE WOLVERINE Hits $95 Million

2 Guns exceeded expectations this weekend, while The Smurfs 2 failed to make an impact in a summer packed full of big animated releases. James Mangold's The Wolverine came in at second place and is now closing in on $100 million. Read on for details!

It's been an extremely few weeks at the North American box office, with many big budget and high profile movies - Pacific Rim for example - failing to find an audience. However, after a fairly strong start for The Wolverine last week, 2 Gun (which had a very modest production cost compared to most summer blockbusters) has found success by taking the #1 spot. Below is a full rundown of this weekend at the North American box office courtesy of Twitter's @ERCboxoffice.
