"think Like A Man" And "the Lucky One" End "the Hunger Games"' Reign At The Box Office

Think Like A Man

“Think Like A Man,” the big screen adaptation of Steve Harvey’s bestselling book, did suprisingly well at Friday’s box office by grossing an outstanding $12.2M. What's even more amazing is it did it in just 2000 theaters. It could end the weekend with $30-36M. Films targeted at the African-American audience tend to be front loaded, so it could end in the lower end of estimates.
