“Smurfs” & “Cowboys & Aliens” Tied For No. 1 Weekend Box Office



See anything good at the movies this weekend?


In a box office shocker, some little blue creatures from a far away village and a few not-so-little green men spawned from outer space are tied for the No. 1 spot at the weekend box office.

Animated family-friendly adventure The Smurfs and Cowboys & Aliens, a sci-fi western starring Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford, are in a photo finish in the latest North American box office race. Both flick earned $36.2 million in their opening weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday.

Actual weekend rankings won’t be sorted out until final numbers are counted on Monday.
