Think Like a Man debuts with $33 million

MUMBAI: Think Like a Man scored one of the best openings in recent memory for an African-American themed film debuting at $33 million. It may well topple Liongate?s blockbuster The Hunger Games which has now grossed $357 million domestically.

Think Like a Man is about four men whose love lives are disrupted when their partners begin using advice from Harvey?s book and received an A CinemaScore. The film made for a modest $12 million to $13 million, follows the success of Screen Gems? The Vow and Underworld Awakening earlier this year, and marks another victory for Screen Gems? Clint Culpepper.

"In terms of African-American themed films, Think Like a Man exceeded many of Tyler Perry?s recent films. Perry?s Good Deeds debuted to $15.6 million earlier this year, while last year?s Madea?s Big Happy Family opened to $25.1 million last year.

Warner Bros.? film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks? The Lucky One came in at No. 2 turning in a better-than-expected $22.8 million in a boost for Zac Efron. The film received a B+ CinemaScore.

Overseas, Lucky One opened to a strong $3.8 milion from only nine territories, with $2.5 million coming from Australia, where it bumped holdover Battleship from the No. 1 spot.

After ruling the domestic box office for four consecutive weekends, the most since Avatar -- Lionsgate?s Hunger Games fell to No. 3, grossing $14.5 million for a domestic total of $357 million.
