Think Like A man

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?

But Man grossed a very impressive $33 million this weekend much more than what industry experts were predicting, with the exception of EFilm Critic's Erik Childress who called it, with the Zac Efron romance drama The Lucky One coming in at No.2

And keep in mind that Man is showing in over 1000 screens LESS than The Lucky One which makes its weekend opening even more impressive. No need to cry though for The Hunger Games coming in at No.3 and which is well on its way to grossing $400 million domestically

1) Think Like a Man SGem $33,000,000
