Friday Box Office: THINK LIKE A MAN TOO Leads with $12.2 Million; JERSEY BOYS in Fourth

It’s another sequel-heavy weekend and another big frame for Sony.  After claiming first place last weekend with 22 Jump Street, the studio is on top again thanks to Think Like a Man Too.  The follow-up to 2012’s surprise box office hit earned an estimated $12.2 million from 2,225 locations on Friday, including $1.8 million from Thursday night previews.  That puts the sequel on track for at least $32 million through Sunday: enough to knock 22 Jump Street to second but not quite enough to surpass the $33.6 million debut of Think Like A Man.

Details and Friday’s top five chart after the jump.

Jersey_Boys_movie_posterAs expected, the weekend’s second new release came in significantly lower than its competition.  Jersey Boys, director Clint Eastwood’s adaptation of the popular Broadway musical, earned an estimated $4.6 million from 2,905 locations on Friday.  That points to a three-day total of $13 million, which is actually a bit higher than expected.  On the other hand, Jersey Boys cost more than Think Like A Man Too and opened in more theatres, so its fourth-place debut can’t help looking a bit soft.

After its own underwhelming debut last weekend, How to Train Your Dragon 2 fell to third place on Friday.  That’s a drop of 59% from its opening day, which puts a pin in the hope that the sequel would make up for its soft debut with better than average holds.  How to Train Your Dragon 2 is projected to bring in $25 million this weekend, down 50% from its debut.  That’s not bad, but it can’t compare to the -33% that the original film pulled off in its sophomore frame or the -48% that the supposedly front-loaded 22 Jump Street is expected to realize this weekend.  Check back tomorrow for complete analysis and the weekend top ten.

 Title Friday Total
1.  Think Like a Man Too $12,200,000 $12.2
2.  22 Jump Street $9,400,000 $91.8
