The date-night movies "Think Like a Man" and "The Lucky One" finally have knocked "The Hunger Games" off its No. 1 box-office perch.
"Think Like a Man," based on Steve Harvey's dating-advice bestseller, debuted as the top weekend draw with $33 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That's almost double what studio executives had expected for the Sony Screen Gems movie, which features Michael Ealy, Taraji P. Henson and Gabrielle Union.
The Warner Bros. drama "The Lucky One," starring Zac Efron in an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' romance novel, opened at No. 2 with $22.8 million. It also came in a bit above studio expectations going into the weekend.
Lionsgate's blockbuster "The Hunger Games" took in $14.5 million, slipping to third place after four weekends at No. 1. The film raised its domestic total to $356.9 million.
