The two films opening in the lead at the box office this weekend were probably as different as two movies could be.  Cowboys and Aliens is a sci-fi western flick with action stars Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig, and The Smurfs is a part animated/part live action movie about The Smurfs leaving their magical world and ending up in New York City.  They made $36.4M and $35.6M, with Cowboys narrowly taking the top spot. Crazy, Stupid, Love, a romantic comedy starring Steve Carrell and Ryan Gosling also opening this weekend, took the 5th spot with $19.1M.

Captain America: The First Avenger and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 remained in the top 5 this weekend with Captain America pulling in $25.6M (bringing its total to $117.4M) and Harry Potter with $22M (bringing its total to $318.5M).  With that total, Harry Potter has broken even more records.  It has now reached the $1 billion mark for worldwide totals, become the highest grossing Potter film, and become the fastest film ever to reach $900M.

Rounding out the top 10:
Friends With Benefits - $9.3M, bringing it to $38.2M total
Horrible Bosses - $7.2M, bringing it to $96.3M total
Transformers: Dark of the Moon - $6.1M, bringing it to $338M total
Zookeeper - $4.3M, bringing it to $68.8M total
Cars 2 - $2.3M, bringing it to $182M total
