Welcome to the Box Office Report: your source for dorky movie commentary and dad jokes. Inside: Think Like a Man wins a weak weekend, and Judd Apatow bleeds for the first time in the box office.
1. Think Like A Man (Screen Gems): $18 million in 2,015 theaters [Week 2]
Think Like A Man out hustled its chief competition for couples' attention, The Five Year Engagement, to post a modest $18 million second week. Overall totals were down this week as anticipation for The Avengers is starting to boil over. The weekend was down 30 percent in comparison to last year. While the Marvel blockbuster doesn't debut in North America until Thursday, it hit theatres overseas and took in $178 million. It will likely hit $200 million before it even airs in a theatre state side.
2. The Pirates! Band of Misfits (Sony): $11.4 million in 3,358 theaters
The Pirates! comes from the same company responsible for Chicken Run, the underrated Flushed Away, and the beloved Wallace & Gromit shorts. While this wasn't expected to be the best Aardman Animations weekend debut ever, it's benefitting from being one of the only movies to take a kid to a matinee too right now.
