For the second weekend in a row Think Like A Man was No.1 at the box office beating all comers inclduing The Five Year Engagement which was predicted to be No. 1 this weekend, but didn't fare any better than fifth place (Actually a very amusing film, but with a turn off title that no doubt hurt its performance)

In the so-called "specialty box office" category... another film that also opened this weekend to strong numbers was Magnolia Pictures's Kevin Macdonald-directed Bob Marley documentary, titled, simply, Marley - a film we've given lots of coverage to on S&A.

I predicted two weeks ago that Think Like A Man would be the film to knock The Hunger Games off of its No.1 box office perch where it's been sitting comfortably for the last month. But does anyone listen to me?

Ahead of Sergio's official box office post tomorrow, I thought I'd jump in here (given that we've got a contest running, and this is apparently the hottest *black film* of the year thus far) and let you all know that, according to Deadline, Think Like A Man is en route to taking the box office crown this weekend, with an estimated $30 million!!

The Stooges couldn't do it. The Cabin in the Woods couldn't do it. They couldn't knock The Hunger Games from its No. 1 position the fourth week in a row. Though, as I did last week, I still predict that Think Like A Man, when it comes out this next weekend, will do it. Any takers?

As I stated yesterday The Hunger Games was headed to make some box office history this weekend and it did making $155 million this weekend becoming the third biggest box office weekend opening ever and the single biggest opening ever for a non-sequel movie. The Hunger...HEY WAIT! OOPS! I made yet again another mistake. That image isn't from The Hunger Games...

Of course what the final numbers will be won't come out until Sunday but right now, judging from the box office take from late Thursday midnight and Friday screenings, The Hunger Games is headed for a spectacular opening weekend.
