'Smurfs 2' Leads the Weekend in Brazil on August 05, 2013

The Smurfs 2 posted the biggest total in its Latin America release from a $4.7 million Brazilian debut. The figure is well below the $6.9 million opening weekend that The Smurfs scored in Brazil in the same weekend of 2011.

The Wolverine ended the weekend in second place, coming close to beating the Smurfs with a $4.1 million hold in its second frame. Brazil is one of the top markets for the superhero film, where it has now grossed $13.9 million. Monsters University has proved to be another popular option for Brazilian audiences; the animated film has earned $16.8 million in the territory. Turbo hasn't had as much luck posting big numbers. The animated Fox/DreamWorks release crossed the $5 million mark after netting $178k in its third weekend in Brazil.

The Wolverine opened to an impressive $5.5 million over the weekend, a notable improvement over Jackman’s previous solo venture in the superhero franchise, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which previously held the record as the highest opening forthe clawed superhero with a $3.4 million debut.

Despicable Me 2 reached a major milestone in Brazil by hitting the $30 million mark after a $2.4 million weekend in its fourth frame. Man of Steel has grossed nearly half that figure over three weeks and is currently posting a $14.5 million total.

Turbo fell flat during its second week, grossing under $1 million over the weekend to crawl to a $4.2 million cume. The Lone Ranger is keeping Turbo company with box office woes of its own; the Johnny Depp/Armie Hammer Western has only taken in $3.9 million after three weeks in release and fell a whopping 73% from its previous weekend to occupy a position near the bottom of the chart.
