Aug 14 (TheWrap.com) - “Let's Be Cops” apprehended a strong $5.2 million in its first day at the box office on Wednesday, distributor Fox reported Thursday.

The R-rated comedy featuring Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson as fake cops is getting an early start on the weekend, and its opener was comparable to two other recent raunchy comedies. 

Melissa McCarthy‘s “Tammy” debuted with $3.4 million on Wednesday and went on to take in $33 million over the five-day July 4 weekend. Jennifer Anniston's “We're the Millers” brought in $6.7 million on an opening Wednesday last August and went on to take in $38 million over the five days. 

Lionsgate's “Expendables 3” and “The Giver” from the Weinstein Company will open Friday, against reigning champ “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Paramount's reptile reboot is favored to repeat at No. 1 with somewhere north of $30 million, with the Fox comedy and Stallone's old-school tough guys providing the main competition.

The Friday figure for “Let's Be Cops” includes the $1.2 million that it took from late-night Tuesday screenings. By Friday will be in 2,936 theaters in the U.S. and Canada.
