Sony reports that Think Like a Man Too earned $12.2 million on Friday as the sequel claimed first place for the day. BoxOffice projects a $32 million opening weekend from there, continuing Kevin Hart's box office winning streak. The original film opened to a similar $33.6 million in April 2012. Early word of mouth appears solid with a 77 percent Flixster score as of Saturday morning, comparable to that of Ride Along's 79 percent.
Warner Bros.' Jersey Boys grabbed $4.64 million yesterday and could ring up $13.3 million for its opening weekend. Those figures are much softer than early sources had indicated would be the case last night, owing largely to slow late night business and possibly indicating some extra frontloading. Still, with an older target audience than most films in release right now, anything is on the table. Early word of mouth is fair with a 71 percent Flixster score, although the online platform isn't really indicative of the movie's typical viewer.
22 Jump Street is holding well with a $9.4 million second Friday and projected $30 million sophomore frame. The Sony sequel's 8-day domestic haul is a strong $91.85 million. How to Train Your Dragon 2 added $7.6 million yesterday for a 59 percent week-to-week drop, giving it $77.5 million though 8 days and setting it on course for a $25.5 million second weekend.
Meanwhile, Edge of Tomorrow took in $3.01 million at the start of its third frame, giving it a $67.2 million 15-day domestic haul. Also entering its third weekend, The Fault In Our Stars grossed $3.1 million yesterday for a likely weekend around $8.2 million. Its domestic take thus far is $93.2 million.
