Kevin Hart, ‘Think Like a Man Too’ Eye No. 1 at the Box Office
According to Variety, it’s deja vu for Kevin Hart at the box office with Sony/Screen Gem’s “Think Like a Man 2″ heading for an estimated $34 million opening weekend at the U.S. box office.
That’s the same turf occupied two years ago by the original “Think Like a Man,” which opened with $33.6 million. The sequel started solidly with an estimated $12 million Friday, including $1.8 million in Thursday evening shows. Friday forecasts pegged “Think Like a Man” with another $13 million on Saturday and between $8 million and $9 million Sunday. “Think Like a Man Too” stars Hart, Jerry Ferrara, Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy, Meagan Good, Regina Hall and Taraji P. Henson and is set in Las Vegas — a durable location for comedies. It could wind up matching the original’s $96 million cume, a feat that would underline Hart’s star power, five months after his “Ride Along” opened with $41 million on its way to a $134 million U.S. cume.
Sidebar: Congrats to the cast, especially Kevin Hart. I went to see the film early this morning and although I was glad I supported opening weekend, uh I hope they don't do a Think Like A Man 3. This movie was all over the place. It really felt like the Kevin Hart show with everyone else as a side-dish. It had it's funny moments but overall I think younger audiences will enjoy it more. Regardless of my opinion, I am so happy it looks like it will take the #1 slot. I am more excited about that than the actual movie. Lol!
