Cowboys and Aliens, Smurfs Neck and Neck at Weekend Box Office

Box Office shake up for second weekend in a row as Cowboys and Aliens and The Smurfs battle for #1

Box Office predictors who thought Cowboys and Aliens would take the weekend were in for a  surprise as some movie goers opted to see the movie staring the little blue people from your childhood instead giving ‘Cowboys’ come competition. Final numbers will be out tomorrow but currently both studios Universal and Sony are claiming the number one spot. This is the second weekend in a row where box office predictions have turned out wrong. Last weekend Captain America was up against Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II and it was predicted that Potter would reign for a second weekend when in the end Captain America came out victorious.

Todd Philips has optioned the rights to ‘Arms and Dudes’ based on an aritcle in the March 2011 edition of Rollin Stone about two stoners who became major weapon dealers. He is also set to direct and produce the film.

Story, which appeared in the March 31, 2011 issue of Rolling Stone, chronicled the tale of David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli, who won a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to arm America’s allies in Afghanistan. Duo made 85 deliveries of munitions to Afghanistan worth more than $66 million before their arms-dealing careers were cut short when federal agents raided their Miami Beach offices in Aug. 2007, culminating in 71 counts of fraud.

Neil Burger is eyeing to direct ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ based on the book ‘Go Down Together: The True Untold Story of Bonnie and Clyde’ by Jeff Guinn. The film will be financed by Marrissa McMahon daughter of WWE owner Vince McMahon.

Guinn is a journalist whose book chronicles two of America’s legendary outlaws, Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, as the young lovers rob banks throughout the Depression-era South, leaving at least seven bodies in their wake. Variety
