Neil Patrick Harris and “The Smurfs” tie Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford at the weekend box office!
He has the Midas touch!
Neil Patrick Harris – awards show host with the most, sitcom star, and two-time Emmy winner – can now add box office draw to his laurels.
Of course he has some fuzzy blue forest dwellers to thank for that.
NHP in The Smurfs made a stronger-than-expected showing at the box office this weekend grossing an estimated $36.2 million. That put it in a tie at the top with Cowboys & Aliens, a flick starring Daniel Craig and Harrison Ford as Old West gunslingers fending off an alien attack.
Final numbers will be released on Monday when one of the films will likely nudge ahead.
