Back in 2012 Screen Gems brought to the big screen the adaptation of the Steve Harvey man-guide, "Think Like A Man", to surprisingly strong results, debuting at $33.6 million and finishing up at $91 million. The Boys are back, this time heading to Sin City in "Think Like A Man Too".

Back in 2012 Screen Gems brought to the big screen the adaptation of the Steve Harvey man-guide, "Think Like A Man", to surprisingly strong results, debuting at $33.6 million finishing up at $91 million.  The Boys are back, this time heading to Sin City in the not-so-creatively-titled "Think Like A Man Too". 

think like a man too

THINK LIKE A MAN TOO---SONY/SCREEN GEMS---WIDE---106 MINS---PG-13

Tim Story, the director of the first TLAM, is back for the second installment, fresh off the success of his "Ride Along", also starring the hardest working man in show business Kevin Hart.  The first TLAM opened to a stunning $33.6 million and since that time Kevin Hart has done nothing to diminish his star status, although if he continues to star in every other film released we may eventually suffer from a Hart attack.  African American comedies have been few and far between since "Ride Along" (quick....name the last one....didn't think so) so look for this outing to exceed the first with the high 30's entirely possible.

JIM'S WEEKEND BOX OFFICE PREDICTION: $38 MILLION

CAST:  Kevin Hart, Gabriel Union, Michael Ealy, Meagan Good, Taraji P. Henson
DIRECTOR: Tim Story
THURSDAY NIGHT LATE SHOWS: 7:00 PM


Jersey Boys

JERSEY BOYS---WARNER BROTHERS---WIDE---134 MINS---R

ATTENTION, those who enjoy supper at 4:00 pm, think "The Golden Girls" reruns are a big night in and wear support hosiery up to your knees, have we got a movie for you.  That young whippersnapper Clint Eastwood is back in the director's chair, this time bringing the Broadway hit "Jersey Boys" to the big screen.  To say the appeal for this film will be to card-carrying AARP members is more than a mild understatement and Warners' trick will be to get them to leave Friday Night Bingo & Yams Night and head to their local multiplex in their 1990 Buick LeSabre.  It's been since 2003's "Mystic River" since a non-starring Eastwood film was an actual box office success so the WB marketing department has its work cut out for it.  Oh, plus it looks like a pretty strong weekend for Antiques Roadshow reruns on PBS, so there's that as well.

JIM'S WEEKEND BOX OFFICE PREDICTION:  $15 MILLION

CAST: John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Christopher Walken
DIRECTOR: Clint 
THURSDAY NIGHT LATE SHOWS: 12:00 AM, which would actually be Friday early morning shows for Clint's audience.
