‘The Hunger Games’ which has ruled the last four consecutive Friday box office battles has finally been slain in battle.
Screen Gems' ‘Think Like a Man’ placed Number 1 on Friday with US $ 12,200,000.
The film is expected to earn around US $ 20,000,000 and 25,000,000 for the weekend.
It topped the Nicholas Sparks-derived Zac Efron melodrama ‘The Lucky One,’ which pulled in a strong US $ 9,100,000 on Friday.
That leaves Lionsgate's ‘Games’ far behind at 3rd with US $ 4,000,000.
Meanwhile, Disney's newest documentary about the animal kingdom, ‘Chimpanzee,’ opened at Number 4 with US $ 3,500,000.
