‘Will Ferrell with a gun’, that was the concept jokingly pitched at the San Diego Comic Con about The Other Guys. Sounds like the simple pitch worked on audiences this weekend. The buddy cop movie pairing Ferrell with Mark Walburg easily topped the box office ($35M) this weekend knocking off ‘the other guys’ with ease. Even the comedic giant Steve Carrell could not compete with his opening of Dinner with the Schmucks with a measly $10 million. Needing to bounce back from the disastrous Land of the Lost, Ferrell was well supported with positive reviews from critics and strong word of mouth. Christopher Nolan’s Inception continues its box office success and will probably round out the summer at $250 million making it one of the more profitable movies of the season. This weekend will be a real battle between testosterone filled Expendables, Estrogen laced Eat,Pray,Love, and quirky Scott Pilgrim vs The World.
