Hitting the screens this weekend and taking the box office crown is "Think Like a Man Too" opening to a solid 30 million. Very close to estimations and word-of-mouth is fair on this so it could hit 100 mil but may be a long struggle. Very small bump to #2 is "22 Jump Street" earning an extra 29 mil and has now surpassed the 100 mil mark! Also a small drop to #3 is "How to Train Your Dragon 2" with another 25.3 mil as it is inches away from the 100 mil mark and should hit that with no problem within the next day or two. New at #4 is "Jersey Boys" as it sings in the basement with only 13.5 mil to open, close to expectations as well. Rounding off the top 5 is "Maleficent" gaining another 13 mil as it quickly approaches the 200 mil cume mark and should get it by end of this week.
New movies next week:
Only one big release this week and rightfully so as the fourth installment in this mega-franchise opens to over 4,000 screens ... "Transformers: Age of Extinction." With early evening Thursday shows, it should break the 100 mil mark with ease but the real questions is, by how much? With every sound and film format (3D, IMAX, large formats, D-Box, DTS, Dolby Atmos) ... I think it could pass the 125 mil mark.
