Sony's Think Like a Man grossed $1.25 million on Monday to lead the daily box office for an eleventh consecutive day. The Screen Gems ensemble comedy featuring Kevin Hart fell 72 percent from Sunday and 55 percent from last Monday. Think Like a Man was the only film to gross over $1 million on Monday, as moviegoers continue to wait for the anticipated domestic launch of Marvel's The Avengers on Friday.

The Hunger Games took third place with $0.722 million. Lionsgate's blockbuster adaptation fell 75 percent from Sunday and just 28 percent from last Monday, as the film continues to receive an added boost this week from its one-week IMAX engagement.
