It's the almost tie of the sequels. Based on Steve Harvey's ("Family Feud") book, "Think Like a Man Too" is a follow-up to Harvey's break out hit in 2012 "Think Like a Man," which grossed $96 million world-wide. His new installment, "Think Like a Man Too" topped the box office this weekend, just nearly beating out the comedy "22 Jump Street." "Think Like a Man Too" debuted in the top position at the box office earning a domestic gross of $30 million.
Coming close to tying with "Think Like a Man Too" is "22 Jump Street," starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, in its second week in theaters. The film earned $29 million in Northern America and has grossed a total of $111.4 million in domestic receipts since its release. No doubt Sony is very pleased with huge success of its sequel to "21 Jump Street" in 2012. "21 Jump Street" earned a world-wide gross of $201 million and it appears that its newest installment, "22 Jump Street," shall easily do just as well.
Clint Eastwood's latest film "Jersey Boys," based on the smash hit Broadway musical, debut disappointingly in third place. The film has been plagued with bad reviews, earning a dismal 55% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.com. The film earned $13.5 million in U.S. and Canada.
The children's animated film "How to Train Your Dragon 2," another sequel, dropped from second to third place, earning $25.3 million during its second week in theaters. And rounding out the top five, Angelina Jolie's "Maleficent," dropped from third to fifth place, earning an additional $13 million for Disney.
