After a rare weekend photo-finish race at the box office between Universal’s Cowboys & Aliens and Sony/Columbia’s The Smurfs, which saw Cowboys come out ahead by about $800,000 when the final results were announced, The Smurfs has staged a comeback. In midweek business on Monday and Tuesday, the live/animated feature earned $10,669,520 while Cowboys lassoed $8,532,300. That’s a whopping 25-percent lead for The Smurfs. Total box office for the first five days now stands at: The Smurfs, $46,281,157; Cowboys & Aliens, $44,963,590.
