While it was widely predicted that we'd see the first new box office #1 following a month of total domination by "The Hunger Games", it comes as a bit of a surprise to see "Think Like a Man" become the film that did just that.

The Jennifer Lawrence starring Sci-Fi/Action/Drama film based on Suzanne Collins' best-selling book earned an estimated $6.5 million on Friday and another $9.5 million on Saturday with its weekend total predicted to wind up at $21.7 million - which takes the blockbuster's Stateside cume to a whopping $335.7 million!
