Box Office Results · April 22, 2012

It took five weeks, but the Box Office finally has a new victor.

The new relationship comedy ‘Think Like A Man’ stole the crown from ‘The Hunger Games’ over the weekend, ending its month-long reign atop the Box Office. The movie based on the popular Steve Harvey book ‘Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man’, pulled in $33M over the weekend. Apparently, audiences decided to trade the battle royale of ‘The Hunger Games’ for the Battle of the Sexes.

Speaking of relationships, Pretty Boy Zac Efron’s new romance flick ‘The Lucky One’ debuted in second place with $22.8M – much better than ol’ ‘Charlie St. Cloud’ did! (Remember that thing!?) But, this movie has Nicholas Sparks behind it, and evidently everything he cranks out is goddamn gold! Seriously, this is the SEVENTH film based on one of his novels!!

Disney’s ‘Chimpanzee’ also had a pretty good weekend. The film opened in the fourth spot with $10.2M, making it the most successful opening of all the DisneyNature documentaries; earning more than ‘Earth’, ‘Oceans’, and ‘African Cats’.

Here is the estimated breakdown of the weekend totals:

  1. Think Like A Man? Sounds like it could be reinforcing negative stereotypes and/or be the same old romantic comedy garbage! I think I’ll pass!!

    • Yeah, that’s pretty much the consensus from the reviews we’ve read… Maybe one day when it’s on TV and there is absolutely no other options, I’ll check it out. …And then turn off the television and pick up a book!
