    "Crazy,Stupid,Love" was a great comedy flick, great cast and acting.
    "Cowboys and Aliens" it was an alright film, not Favreau's best film.

    @bawnian-dexeus Ugh. This just as shocking as when Hop and Alvin and the Chipmunks both did amazingly. I should learn by now to overguess with these movies.

    @bawnian-dexeus I saw it was pretty good not offensive or annoying. Yes they did use Smurf puns like not that much like a minimum

    @moviegeek Only by a million, but yeah, didn't think it would actually take 1st place....least the west didn't need 3D to get to second place

    @monkeyiron2-0 nooooo. Not this page. I'm talking about the early numbers from other sites showing that The Smurfs won the weekend. I only posted my rant on this page because the topic was related and I needed somewhere to vent:

    No @moviegeek it's the predictions...it's just showing what they think how much the movie will earn remember they put Zookeeper as #2 in the predictions then in the real box office result it was #3 and when scott pilgrim was suppose 2 be #2 but harshly a #7

    I'm seeing: "Cowboys & Aliens" on Sun 07/31...I can wait a few days til the hype dies down...Can''t wait to see!

    I saw "Crazy, Stupid, Love" last night, Great cast...Julianne Moore rocks!.... Not a great film, not an ok film either, "Crazy, Stupid, Love" is a good film. A points the film feels a tad to long......some clunky story-telling.......My Final Rating: C+.

    Seriously, only a 44% on RT? WTF critics?!

    Anyways, still pumped to see both Cowboys & Aliens and Captain America this weekend! The Smurfs looks liking and big, steamy, pile of smurf.

    I think Crazy, Stupid Love will do better than what they're predicting here, but other than that this list seems pretty bang on.

  26. ROFLitschristian

    Cowboys & Aliens has had a lot of hype so I think it'll take 1st place. Followed by Smurfs, then Capt. America. Comon' Harry! Get back up there!

  27. The First Avenger: JohnnyBlaze

    Agreed @PRPwnVRVn8UfTW. IM hoping Cap retains number 1 but its a fanboys dream. Realisticly il take Cowboys over Smurfs. That movie looks BEYOND HORRIBLE!

    @insertusernamehere And the foreign numbers aren't helping it either :/

    Cowboys and Aliens will win out with right under $40 million.. The Smurfs should go die, but they'll probably get around $27 million. Crazy, Stupid, Love will get maybe $18ish.

    @jayaottley Agreed
