Weekend Box Office Report: 'Think Like a Man Too' Miraculously Tops the Charts

Think Like a Man Too

With this weekend’s releases receiving such mediocre reviews, it looked like it would be a good weekend for the more popular holdover films. However, one of the new releases still managed to make its way to the top, despite all the criticism leveled at it. Still, it was a narrow thing—the holdover films were not far behind.

Think Like a Man Too sits at the top of the charts with earnings of $30 million. This is a bit below its projected gross, but even these revenues are generous, if critics are to be believed.

It was followed by last week’s 22 Jump Street, which followed Think Like a Man Too closely with revenues of $29 million, and an ever-rising total of $111.4 million. It was again followed by How to Train Your Dragon 2, which made another $25.3 million for a total of $95.1 million.

Next came our other, less-fortunate new release, Jersey Boys, which fulfilled its meager expectations with earnings of $13.5 million. It was followed by Maleficent, which earned $13 million over the weekend for a total of $185.9 million.
