Kevin Hart is going to dominate the box office this weekend.
Right now, Fandango tells us ticket sales for Hart’s film are outpacing his last film “Ride Along.” That movie, starring Ice Cube debuted to $US41.5 million and went on to make $US153.3 million.
If “Think Like a Man Too” performs just as well, that would mark Sony Picture’s second big comedy hit in two weeks since “22 Jump Street” debuted to a massive $US60 million last weekend.
We’ve previously noted how Hart has become a box-office machine rolling out low-budget hit after hit.
“Think Like A Man” opened to $US33.6 million in 2012, costing just $US12 million to produce. “Ride Along” was estimated to cost $US25 million.
This weekend’s other new release, Clint Eastwood’s “Jersey Boys,” is most likely to have a sour opening going up against so many sequels (“22 Jump Street,” “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” and “Think Like a Man Too”). There’s also the staying power of recent hits “Maleficent” and “Edge of Tomorrow” that are aimed toward a younger demographic than Eastwood’s drama.
