Think Like a Man held onto the top spot at the box office for a second weekend despite several new releases including The Five-Year Engagement and The Raven. Think Like a Man was off 47 percent from it’s opening weekend but still managed to bring in an additional $18 million. The movie, based on Steve Harvey’s 2009 book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, has now earned $60.9 million, making it the highest-grossing movie of April 2012.
Of the four new movies opening this weekend, only The Pirates! Band of Misfits managed to break the top three with an estimated $11.4 million. TimeToPlayMag.com’s family-film critic, Cynthia Fuchs, reviewed the pirates and gave it 9 out of 10 See-It-Again points.
Other new movies opening included The Five-Year Engagement, which surprised everyone by how poorly it did. The movie, which opened to $11.16 million, is the latest project from Nick Stoller and Jason Segel, whose Forgetting Sarah Marshall opened to $17.7 million and spawned a sequel. The other two new releases were the latest Jason Statham action movie, Safe, which opened to an estimated $7.7 million and The Raven, which took in an estimated $7.25 million.
