Think Like a Man led the way once again on Wednesday, as the start of the summer movie season quickly approaches.

on May 03, 2012 by Daniel Garris

Sony's Think Like a Man grossed $1.02 million on Wednesday to claim first at the daily box office for a 13th consecutive day. The Screen Gems ensemble comedy featuring Kevin Hart fell 24 percent from Tuesday, as wide releases in general were down significantly yesterday. Compared to last Wednesday, Think Like a Man was down 48 percent. Think Like a Man has grossed a stronger than expected $64.09 million in 13 days, placing it 31 percent ahead of the pace of 2009's Obsessed.

The Five-Year Engagement held steady in second with $0.822 million. The Universal comedy starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt fell 27 percent from Tuesday, which represented one of Wednesday's larger daily declines among wide releases. The Five-Year Engagement has grossed just $13.38 million in six days of release, placing it a disappointing 41 percent behind the pace of 2008's Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

The Hunger Games was up one spot from Tuesday to take third place on Wednesday with $0.712 million. The Lionsgate blockbuster experienced one of the day's better daily holds among wide releases, as it was down 18 percent from Tuesday and down 25 percent from last Wednesday. The 41-day total for The Hunger Games stands at a massive $374.32 million.

The Lucky One was down 29 percent and one spot from Tuesday to finish in fourth with $0.684 million. The Zac Efron vehicle from Warner Bros. was down 50 percent from last Wednesday, as it continues to show signs of being front-loaded. The Lucky One has grossed a solid $41.74 million in 13 days and continues to mirror the box office run of 2009's 17 Again closely.
