Washington, Apr 30 (ANI): 'The Five-Year Engagement', pegged by some to rule the rankings, managed only a fifth-place debut at the weekend box office, while the surprise romantic-comedy hit 'Think Like a Man' was a surprise number 1 for the week in a row.
The Jason Stratham action movie 'Safe' and the costume-drama thriller 'The Raven' fared even worse, E! online reported
The animated 'The Pirates! Band of Misfits' bowed in second place, but really wasn't any bigger than those other films. For all its theaters, 3-D ticket prices and family-friendly selling points, it only grossed 11.4 million dollars.
With a 11.2-million-dollar start, 'The Five Year-Engagement' failed to meet expectations, and was more 'Drillbit Taylor' than 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall'.
Among the holdovers, 'Think Like a Man' upped its overall domestic take to 60.9-million-dollar, while the six-week-old 'The Hunger Games' continued to show staying power.
'21 Jump Street' dropped out of the Top 10 after a hit domestic run of 132 million dollars.
'American Reunion' also fell from the standings. It was gassed after a three-week stay, and, worse, with only 53.6-million-dollar in the domestic bank to date, it'll become the first 'American Pie' big-screen comedy to fail to top 100 million dollars.
'Titanic 3D' neared the end of its run, having added another 52.9-million-dollar to the 2-D Titanic's soaring domestic total.
