Think Like a Man Too trumps "Walk Like a Man," it seems

It’s another big box office weekend for Sony Pictures sequels. One week after 22 Jump Street dominated the box office, Kevin Hart’s ensemble-cast comedy Think Like a Man Too claimed the number one spot this weekend with a $30 million domestic gross.

That’s more than twice the gross of the weekend’s other big release, Jersey Boys, which came in 4th place, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Clint Eastwood’s adaptation of the popular musical about Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons earned only $13.5 million, and it attracted mostly older crowds: 71 percent of the audience was older than 50, and 84 percent was older than 35. Though its popularity among older audiences means it might have have a longer lifespan in theaters, its debut is still considered a disappointment for Warner Bros.

The weekend was also a win for Angelina Jolie — Maleficent has now grossed more than $500 million worldwide, becoming her most successful live-action film.
