The bros triumphed at the “hump day” box office after “Entourage” racked up a leading $5.4 million on Wednesday.

That figure includes the $2 million that Vince Chase and fellow Hollywood hedonists Turtle, E, Drama, and Ari brought in during Tuesday night late shows. The Warner Bros. release is trying to get a jump on a crowded weekend that includes two big debuts — the Melissa McCarthy comedy “Spy” and “Insidious: Chapter 3.”

“Entourage” hopes to crack the $20 million mark over its first five days in theaters. But it’s unclear if ticket sales will be front-loaded with fans of the long-running HBO series rushing out to find out what’s happened to the hard-partying crew in the ensuing four years since the show went off the air. Spoiler alert: things are still pretty awesome.

Critics hated the film, so it will have to be review proof to score. But the stakes aren’t that high for Warner Bros., given that the film cost less than $30 million to produce.

“Spy,” which presents McCarthy as a sort of James Bond in a tracksuit, is expected to snag first place this weekend when it’s projected to debut to approximately $35 million. It will be trailed by the second week of “San Andreas,” which should bring in $26 million, and “Insidious: Chapter 3″ with a bow of roughly $25 million.

    Box office reporting so far this season has been spin city, to say the least. The panic button has been pushed. With so many films performing at mediocre levels, along with the expensive flops, TOMORROWLAND. just to name one, it has become necessary for the media to make film success look sunnier than it actually is right now. But when you look at ticket prices, and film grosses versus costs, you get the real picture. And not to mention that most films are absolutely pancaking in their 2nd and 3rd weeks.

    Who cares? a bunch of has-beens

    Come on guys. It did NOT make $5.4 million on WEDNESDAY…. It made $3.4. You cannot factor in Tuesday grosses and call them Wednesday. The whole box-office news is being skewed with everything now actually opening the night before.
