Aw sookie, sookie now!
“Think Like A Man” Set To Make Over $30 Million This Weekend
“Think Like A Man” the new adaptation of Steve Harvey’s best-selling book, earned a muscular $9 million at the box office on Friday, reports THR. That puts the little-discussed film on track to knock “The Hunger Games” out of the top position when final numbers are tabulated on Monday. (Deadline.com’s Nikki Finke was even more bullish on “Think Like a Man,” reporting Friday grosses of $12 million.)
UPDATE: Finke’s estimates were dead-on: “Think Like a Man” earned $12.2 million on Friday, which could push it over $30 million for the weekend.
Directed by Tim Story, “Think Like A Man” has been tracking very well despite little mainstream press acknowledgement. Earlier this month, Vutlure reported that “Man” was the “best-testing film in Hollywood,” with screening audiences giving it almost unanimous praise and approval. The romantic comedy stars Romany Malco, Meagan Good, Taraji P. Henson, Michael Ealy and Kevin Hart, who could be “Man’s” not-so-secret weapon. Last year, the comedian’s stand-up comedy film, “Laugh at My Pain,” earned a surprising $7.7 million at the box office.
