Think Like a Man experienced Tuesday's poorest daily hold among wide releases, but continued to claim first place nonetheless.

‘Think Like a Man’ Leads Tuesday with $1.34 Million

on May 02, 2012 by Daniel Garris

Sony's Think Like a Man took in $1.34 million on Tuesday to claim first place at the daily box office for a twelfth consecutive day. The Screen Gems ensemble comedy featuring Kevin Hart was up 7 percent over Monday. That actually represented the day's poorest daily hold among wide releases, as Tuesday holds were strong in general yesterday. Compared to last Tuesday, Think Like a Man was down 49 percent. While it is starting to show signs of slowing, Think Like a Man has already grossed a terrific $63.07 million in just twelve days.

Universal's The Five-Year Engagement was up a sizable 37 percent to hold steady in second place with $1.13 million. Despite the nice percentage increase yesterday, the R-rated comedy starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt is still having an underwhelming run thus far with a five-day take of just $12.56 million. That places The Five-Year Engagement 40 percent behind the pace of 2008's Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

The Lucky One was up one spot and a strong 40 percent over Monday to finish in third with $0.958 million. The Zac Efron vehicle from Warner Bros. was down 49 percent from last Tuesday. The film continues to run in line with expectations with a twelve-day take of $41.05 million. That places The Lucky One on par with the $41.0 million twelve-day start of 2009's 17 Again.

The Hunger Games fell one spot from Monday to claim fourth place with $0.864 million. The Lionsgate blockbuster was up 20 percent over Monday and down a healthy 24 percent from last Tuesday, as the film continues to receive an added boost this week from its one-week IMAX engagement. The Hunger Games overtook 2004's Spider-Man 2 for 16th place on the all-time unadjusted domestic chart yesterday and currently boasts a 40-day total gross of $373.61 million.
