CHICAGO – “Think Like a Man” – starring Kevin Hart and Gabrielle Union – held its own, securing the top spot for a second week in a row with a weekend gross of $17.6 million ($60.4 million total). “The Five-Year Engagement” written by and starring Jason Segel was expected to top the box office this past weekend but came in at a disappointing fifth place with a weekend gross of $10.6 million. The second and third spots were held respectively by new release family animated movie “The Pirates! Band of Misfits” ($11.1 million total) and “The Hunger Games” ($372 million total).

While multiple news outlets consider “The Five-Year Engagement” a flop, E! Online predicts the comedy will be saved from “flop status” with its frugal budget of $30 million. Other new releases include Jason Stratham’s action flick “Safe” ($7.9 million) and the period thriller “The Raven” ($7.3 million) starring John Cusack. “American Reunion” fell from the top ten and will become the first of the “American Pie” series to fail to hit $100 million.

Marvel Comics’ “The Avengers” has already generated more than $175 million worldwide and it hasn’t even opened yet. Well, not in the U.S. at least. Do you think “The Avengers” will be as popular stateside as it has been overseas in next weekend’s release?

The actual numbers are provided by Box Office Mojo:
1. Think Like a Man – $17.6 million - down 47.7% – $60.4 million total
2. The Pirates! A Band of Misfits - $11 million - new
3. The Hunger Games – $10.8 million – down 26.3% — $372 million total
4. The Lucky One – $10.8 million – down 52% - $39.4 million total
5. The Five-Year Engagement - $10.6 million total - new
6. Safe - $7.9 million - total - new
7. The Raven - $7.3 million - total - new
8. Chimpanzee – $5.2 million – down 51% - $18.9 million total
9. The Three Stooges – $5.2 million – down 47% — $36.9 million total
10. The Cabin in the Woods – $4.6 million – down 42.4% — $34.8 million total
