Comedy ‘Think Like A Man Too’ topped the North American box office in its debut weekend, just edging ‘22 Jump Street’ in a battle of sequels, industry estimates showed on Sunday.
Starring Kevin Hart and Gabrielle Union, ‘Think Like A Man Too’ has all the couples back for a wedding in Las Vegas, but plans for a romantic weekend go awry when their misadventures get them into some compromising situations.
It raked in $30 million in its first weekend, pipping the buddy comedy ‘22 Jump Street’ starring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, which pulled in $29 million for a two-week total of $111.5 million.
Another blockbuster summer sequel ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’, was third with $25.3 million over the weekend, according to industry tracker Exhibitor Relations.
‘Jersey Boys’, Clint Eastwood’s film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical about the 1960s rise to pop success of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, debuted in fourth place at $13.5 million.
Down to fifth place was Angelina Jolie’s “Maleficent,” a modern retelling of the life of Sleeping Beauty’s arch-nemesis, with $13 million for the weekend – and $186 million since release.
Falling to sixth was Tom Cruise’s latest action movie ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ in, which he stars as a soldier caught in a time loop as he battles aliens, with $10.3 million. Seventh was romantic drama ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, based on a popular young adult novel by John Green about teenagers who meet at a cancer support group. It earned $8.6 million in its third week.
