Still Thinking Like a Winner
The film adaptation of Steve Harvey’s book Think Like a Man continued to think about dollar signs fending off Pirates to maintain first place. Think Like a Man brought in $18 million this weekend and continues to surpass all expectations. Good year so far for Lionsgate.
The Pirates! Band of Misfits, the animated film from the same people who brought us Wallace and Gromit came in second place with $11.4 million. Third place belonged the sappy romance flick starring Zac Efron, The Lucky One, which just narrowly beat out The Hunger Games with $11.3 million. The Hunger Games came in fourth place and has now officially grossed enough money to make it one of the richest people in the world adding another $11.2 million to its total.
The biggest surprise of the weekend has to be the disappointing debut of Jason Siegel/Judd Apatow’s Five Year Engagement. Being heavily promoted as “From the Producers of Bridesmaids” didn’t seem to work in its favor as the film only grossed $11.2 million.
