'Think Like A Man Too' Is #1


Once again, Kevin Hart is able to deliver. When the first Think Like A Man was released, he was part of the ensemble. Since then he’s been able to headline #1 openings for Ride Along and About Last Night. Can we call him bankable now? I think so.

Jersey Boys hadn’t been tracking well, but for a Clint Eastwood-directorial effort, it opened about as expected. His movie usually open in limited release before going wide, and sometimes they’re hits (Gran Torino) but his last three movies (Invictus, Hereafter, J. Edgar) have ended their domestic run before hitting $40 million. Jersey Boys looks on par with that, though hitting $40 million is quite possible.

The top three movies are sequels, and there will be six more before the end of summer. Thirteen sequels in four months, which is actually normal for summer. (Last summer had twelve, 2011 & 2012 had eleven.)

Godzilla and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 are scraping, clawing, heaving toward the $200 million domestic line.
