Box Office: Four new films can't stop 'Think Like a Man' [Video]
The ensemble relationship comedy claimed the No. 1 spot yet again, raking in an additional $18 million and raising its overall tally to $60.9 million. "The Five-Year Engagement," a romantic comedy starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, was expected to be the most popular movie in theaters this weekend — but instead it grossed a lackluster $11.2 million.
Three other new films all had underwhelming debuts as well, including "The Pirates! Band of Misfits," a 3-D stop-motion animated film that cost $30 million more to make than "Engagement" but collected $11.4 million this weekend. The Jason Statham action flick "Safe" sold only $7.7 million worth of tickets, and the John Cusack horror film "The Raven" scared up a soft $7.3 million.
