Sony Pictures owned the box office this weekend with the two top movies.
Kevin Hart’s “Think Like A Man Too” may not have made as big a splash as expected; however, the film still topped the weekend making $US30 million.
That’s slightly less than the first film. “Think Like A Man” brought in $US33.6 million when it debuted in 2012.
The studio’s other big sequel, “22 Jump Street,” had such a strong second weekend with $US29 million that it nearly took the top spot away from Hart’s film.
The Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill buddy-cop sequel has now made more than $149 million at theatres in two weeks.
It’s great news for Sony. Last summer, the studio was hurting after a bunch of its big films, “After Earth,” “White House Down,” “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” “The Smurfs 2,” and “Elysium,” all underperformed.
Those performances led to the studio announcing a reduction in the number of films put out by Sony after the company posted an operating loss of $US181 million in its Q2. Sony said moving forward they would put out an estimated 18 movies, down from its typical 23 per year.
