SO-SO OPENING FOR THINK LIKE A MAN TOO

June 22, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Official estimates for the weekend box office probably didn’t make Clint Eastwood’s day. His movie version of the hit musical Jersey Boys ended up earning just $13.5 million, placing fourth on the weekend’s list of top earners. But the producers of the other films on the list could not have been too thrilled with ticket sales, either. Think Like a Man Too opened at the low end of analysts’ forecasts with $30 million, just ahead of last week’s leader, 22 Jump Street with $29 million. The result for the Kevin Hart comedy was more than $3 million below the original Think Like a Man, a bad sign for sequels, which usually exceed the original’s take. How to Train Your Dragon 2 placed third with about $25.3 million. In fifth place was the fourth week of Disney’s Maleficent, which dropped a slight 29.7 percent from last week to round out the top five with $13.01 million. Placing seventh in its third weekend, 20th Century Fox’s The Fault in Our Stars came within striking distance of hitting a total gross of $100 million as it added $8.6 million to its total, which now stands at $98.7 million. It cost only $12 million to produce. Warner’s Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise, moved ahead of it to sixth place with $10.3 million. Its domestic gross now stands at around $74.5 million. It reportedly cost $180 million to produce.


The top ten films for the weekend, according to studio estimates compiled by Rentrak:

1. Think Like a Man Too, $30 million; 2. 22 Jump Street, $29 million; 3. How To Train Your Dragon 2, $25.3 million; 4. Jersey Boys, $13.5 million; 5. Maleficent, $13 million; 6. Edge of Tomorrow, $13.3 million; 7. The Fault in Our Stars, $8.6 million; 8. X-Men: Days of Future Past, $6.4 million; 9. Chef, $1.8 million; 10. Godzilla, $1.8 million.
