Think Like a Man Holds Steady as No. 1 in Weekend Box Office
Michael Ealy, Taraji P. Henson
For the second weekend in a row, romantic comedy Think Like a Man nabbed the top spot in the weekend box office. The film, adapted from the non-fiction book by Steve Harvey, pulled in $18 million this weekend — down from last weekend's $33 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
Starring Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union and Steve Harvey, Think Like a Man managed to trump the opening weekend of Aardman Animations' Pirates! Band of Misfits, which earned $11.4 million. Hugh Grant, Salma Hayek and Jeremy Piven lend their voices to the animated film about Pirate Captain, an amateur trying to win the Pirate of the Year Award.
