Zac Efron Shakes Hunger Games Grip on the Box Office
Finally! After an entire month at the top of the box office, The Hunger Games took the backseat in ticket sales this weekend.
The action-packed tween tale followed behind not one, but two movies this weekend. The number one spot went to Think Like a Man, an ensemble romantic comedy based on a Steve Harvey self-help book, while The Lucky One, an exceedingly mushy Nicholas Sparks tale starring Zac Efron, came in second.
Both of the top two films did better than expected: Think Like a Man raked in an impressive $33 million while The Lucky One earned $22.8 million.
As for The Hunger Games? The movie earned $14.5 million this weekend, bringing its total to $356.9 million. Looks like Katniss and the rest of the District 12 crew will be just fine!
