Kevin Hart will likely top the box office yet again in 2014 after Think Like a Man Too easily rose above all other fare on Friday at the box office.
Sony's sequel to the surprisingly successful ensemble comedy Think Like a Man grossed $12.2 million, which is about even with how the first film started at the box office. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Too is projected to earn close to $32 million, which would be just behind the original film's $33.6 million.
The other new wide release of the weekend, Jersey Boys, did not do so well on Friday. The latest film from Clint Eastwood in the director's chair earned only $4.5 million, which definitely won't be good enough to place all that high for the weekend, with strong holdover fare easily out-earning Jersey Boys. The film is projected to earn about $14 million for the weekend.
Last weekend's top film 22 Jump Street, also from Sony, earned $9.4 million on Friday and could potentially hit the $30 million mark for the weekend, reports Forbes. The Jonah Hill-Channing Tatum buddy comedy likely will pass $100 million just with Saturday's grosses alone.
In third place for Friday was How To Train Your Dragon 2 with $7.6 million. The film is projected to earn $25 million for the weekend, putting the animated sequel close to the $100 million mark.
Maleficent rounded out the top five at the box office with $4.1 million, giving the Disney live-action fantasy drama $176 million so far. The film is projected to earn $13 million on the weekend.
