'Think Like A Man' tops N. America box office

The romantic comedy "Think Like A Man" topped the North American box office for the second weekend in a row, industry figures showed Monday.

The ensemble date movie based on the best-selling book by actor and radio talk show host Steve Harvey made $17.6 million in its second week despite mediocre reviews, according to Exhibitor Relations.

That brings its two-week total to $60.5 million, the box office tracker said.

In second place was "The Pirates! Band of Misfits," a children's stop-motion animated film from the studio that produced the "Wallace and Gromit" series that earned $11.1 million in its opening weekend.

Smash action hit "The Hunger Games" remained in third place in its sixth week on the big screen. The movie, starring Jennifer Lawrence, earned just over $10.8 million and has raked in a total of $372 million since its opening.

Legions of fans have flocked to see the movie, based on a book by Suzanne Collins, in which a teenage girl played by Lawrence fights to win a deadly television reality show featuring children in a post-apocalyptic world.

In fourth place was tearjerker drama "The Lucky One," an adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks book starring Zac Efron as a US soldier back from Iraq. The movie made $10.8 million in its second weekend.

"The Five-Year Engagement," starring Emily Blunt and Jason Segel, opened in fifth place, pulling in $10.6 million.

In sixth place was another debut, the Jason Statham action flick "Safe," which pulled in $7.9 million.

It was followed by yet another new movie with mediocre reviews, "The Raven" starring John Cusack as 19th century American author Edgar Allan Poe, which collected $7.3 million.

"Chimpanzee," a true-life, child-friendly adventure about a special chimp in the jungles of Ivory Coast, sank to eighth place, pulling in $5.2 million.

Ninth was the Farrelly brothers' comedy "The Three Stooges," in its third week. The tribute to the legendary US comedy trio brought in a little under $5.2 million, and a total of $36.9 million since opening.

Rounding off the top 10 was "The Cabin in the Woods," a horror movie co-produced by Joss Whedon of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fame. The film, which plays with stereotypes from teen slasher movies, pulled in $4.6 million.
