Think Like a Man's on top
The date-night movies Think Like a Man and The Lucky One finally have knocked The Hunger Games off its No 1 box-office perch in the US.
Think Like a Man, based on Steve Harvey's dating-advice best-seller, debuted as the top weekend draw with $33 million (Dh121.17 million), according to studio estimates on Sunday. That's almost double what studio executives had expected for the Sony Screen Gems ensemble movie, which features Michael Ealy, Taraji P. Henson and Gabrielle Union.
The Warner Bros drama The Lucky One (pictured), starring Zac Efron in an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' romance novel, opened at No 2 with $22.8 million. It also came in a bit above studio expectations going into the weekend.
The Lucky One releases in the UAE this Thursday; Think Like A Man is scheduled for a September 27 release.
