Box office report: Kevin Hart destroys Clint Eastwood
A comedy sequel leaves legend’s stage-to-screen musical in its dust
Mon Jun 23 2014
Clint Eastwood's day wasn't made at the box office this weekend. His big-screen adaptation of the hit Broadway musical, Jersey Boys, was beat out by the Kevin Hart-starring comedy sequel, Think Like a Man Too, which earned $30 million, took the top spot and has already made back its comparatively small $24 million budget. Think Too just barely topped another comic followup, the Channing Tatum/Jonah Hill vehicle 22 Jump Street, which finished out its second weekend of release with a $29 million haul. So did Dirty Harry's tune-laden biopic about the Four Seasons manage to take bronze? Not even. In third place was Dreamworks' animated fantasy How to Train Your Dragon 2 (making $25 million and change), so Clint had to settle for fourth, with a lukewarm $13.5 million haul. Depending on word of mouth, Jersey Boys could have staying power (audiences gave both Man and Boys an A- Cinemascore), so don't count the Man with No Name out just yet.
