‘Think Like a Man Too’ Outpacing ‘Ride Along’ in Weekend Pre-Sales

Think Like a Man Too,” the Vegas-themed wedding comedy, is leading pre-sales going into the weekend, according to Fandango.

The film boasts an ensemble cast that includes rising star Kevin Hart. It is tracking to make more than $32 million at the domestic box office and is outselling two previous Hart films, “Let Me Explain” and “Ride Along,” at similar points in their sales cycles.

It is also eclipsing its predecessor, “Think Like a Man,” which stunned box office prognosticators when it opened to $33.6 million in April 2012.

The weekend’s other new release, Clint Eastwood’s adaptation of the Broadway smash “Jersey Boys,” is the fourth-biggest seller, with “22 Jump Street” and “How to Train Your Dragon 2” cornering second and third place, respectively. Analysts expect “Jersey Boys” will pull in roughly $12 million this weekend, while “Dragon 2” and “22 Jump Street” should snag $30 million each.

Other online ticketers are telling a different story. MovieTickets.com currently lists “How to Train Your Dragon 2” as its top seller, although it measures sales in 24-hour increments instead of looking at the weekend in its entirety.  “Jersey Boys” was the site’s third-strongest selling film on Wednesday, followed by “Think Like a Man Too” in fourth place.
