‘Let’s Be Cops’ Arrests $1.2 Million in Tuesday Late Night Showings

“Let’s Be Cops” pulled over a solid $1.2 million when it premiered Tuesday night.

The raunchy comedy is shaping up to be an R-rated breakout and could hit $30 million over its first five days in theaters. The film stars Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson as two friends who wear police outfits to a costume party only to be mistaken for the real deal.

Twentieth Century Fox, which is backing the picture, compared its numbers to “We’re the Millers,” which opened up in the same period last year to a $1.7 million Tuesday. That picture went on to make $26.4 million in its debut weekend and $37.9 million over its first five days.

“Let’s Be Cops” screened Tuesday in 2,900 locations beginning at 10 p.m., and will expand to 3,093 venues on Friday.

It will head off between two other wide-releases, young adult film “The Giver” and “The Expendables 3,” as well as two strong holdovers in the form of “The Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”

Despite the competition, with a budget of $17 million, “Let’s Be Cops” is looking to be a very profitable bet by Fox.
