"Think Like a Man" Beats "The Hunger Games" at Box Office

Posted: April 22nd, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Think Like a Man" Beats "The Hunger Games" at Box OfficeSubmit Comment
After four weeks in first place at the domestic box office, "The Hunger Games" lost the top spot to the ensemble comedy "Think Like a Man," which grossed $33 million, one of the best openings in recent history for a film with an almost all-black cast.

The new movie was made for only $12 million and will likely break the $100 million mark. Unfortunately, it will likely not have much of an international release. "Think Like a Man" has a 49% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.

Coming in second place was "The Lucky One," which stars Zac Efron and is based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook). The new movie grossed $22.8 million, but couldn't match the results of other Sparks' films, like "Dear John" ($30.5 million) or "The Last Song ($25.3 million). It has a lousy 21% fresh rating.

"The Hunger Games" had to settle for third place with another $14.5 million, which brought its worldwide total to $572 million.

The other wide release of the weekend, was "Chimpanzee," Disney's latest nature documentary. It landed in fourth place with $10.2 million, a record for Disneynature.

Oh look It's a token white guy in the middle.
Guess he has trouble been too white for the ladies and asks the brothas for rythm and advice.

This movie will be forgotten in 2 weeks anyway.when the avengers come out.

I'm pretty sure the dude's skin color is the least of his issues with the ladies, judging by that image.

The white dude's name is Gary Owen, and he's been on House of Payne, mostly, which helps explain his house cracker role.

I guess it's a somewhat a good thing that even the blacks gotta follow the affirmative action. Only difference is, white people don't bitch if they don't see someone who looks like them in a movie.

Nice to see someone finally KO that HORRIBLE movie. Even nicer to see a nonTyler Perry black film do well at the BO. Maybe now Hwood will give that *sshole a rest and give someone else a chance. I didn't see TLAM but many of the reviews I read (especially from black critics) appreciated the film's lack of Medea buffoonery and church mongering that has become the norm because of TP. Hopefully the writting is on the wall and that idiot is on his way out of the limelight. It couldn't happen fast enough.
