Will Ferrell tops US box office with The Other Guys

Will Ferrell is back where he belongs – number one in the American box office.

After a number of flops recently (i.e Land of the Lost), Will Ferrell’s latest comedy with Mark Wahlberg The Other Guys, pushed Inception off the number one spot.

The Other Guys, which took $35.6 million in it’s opening weekend, is the story of two New York City detectives who are always ‘the other guys’, but an opportunity arises for them to become something more. However things don’t go quite to plan.

The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne Johson and Eva Mendes as the wife of Will Ferrell’s character.

Speaking recently about working with Eva, Will said : “When you see her in person, she’s not that beautiful really… she’s just kind of average. If you were sitting next to her on the bus, you probably wouldn’t notice her.”

We think he is joking.

Inception, staring Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page, had spent three weeks at number one, making $227.7 million in the US and Cananda. Meanwhile in the UK, Inception fell from number two in the box office this week to number 4, with Toy Story 3 holding on to the top spot for the second week running.

The Other Guys will be released in the UK on September 2nd. Check out the trailer below.

    I love Will Ferrell, he is so good in Elf. Has Mark Wahlberg done a comedy before?
