‘Think Like A Man’ Projected To Top Weekend Box Office

It looks as if the rigorous promotional efforts have paid off for the cast members of “Think Like A Man”, as the film is expected to debut at #1 over the weekend.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Think Like a Man” — based on Steve Harvey’s best-selling advice book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man — scored a surprising $500,000 in Thursday midnight runs and is overperforming Friday. Early estimates show it grossing in the $9 million range for the day, and between $20 million and $25 million for the weekend.

Kudos to Steve Harvey, Michael Ealy, Meagan Good, Regina Hall, Meagan Good, Kevin Hart, Kelly Rowland, Chris Brown, Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union, Wendy Williams Terrance J, LaLa Vasquez & everyone else involved with the star-studded production!

Guess How Much ‘The Hunger Games’ Made At The Weekend Box Office?

If The Hunger Games was in a boxing round with other movies that debuted over the past few weeks (or this year period),  it would come out as the winner  — with a TKO.

The big-screen adaption of the beloved book series topped the weekend box office with a whopping earning of $214.25 million internationally ($155 million domestically), making it the third biggest opening of all time behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 and The Dark Knight. Wow.

‘Hangover 2’ Sets Record At The Box Office, But Is It Worth Your Money?

Though ‘The Hangover 2’ was plagued by negative reviews from critics & audiences alike, that didn’t stop the film from setting a box office record.

With an approximate $105 million box office intake over the four-day weekend, the Wolfpack has officially kicked off the summer movie season.

This also means that “The Wolfpack” has scored the largest opening EVER for an R-rated comedy. Not to mention, it came in at #1 at the box office, passing other major sequels (Pirates of the Caribbean & Kung Fu Panda). (Source) Kudos to the film’s stars.

Though it has set a precedent, there is a continued debate regarding Hangover 2’s comedic appeal.

As I was one of many to see the film during it’s midnight debut, I thoroughly enjoyed it! I laughed at 75% of it’s duration. However, not everyone was as pleased with the plot (which is exactly the same as ‘The Hangover’), comedic devices or over-the-top situations (I won’t spoil it for those of you that have yet to see it).

Did you think ‘The Hangover 2’ was worth the hype?
