April 30th, 2012 8:17am EDT
In a surprise twist, "Think Like A Man" landed a second week at the top of the box office. In the film, four men realize their significant others have been taking relationship tips from Steve Harvey's best-selling book "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man." The men then use the book's teachings to give the ladies a taste of their own medicine.
The comedy stars Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union and Michael Ealy and took home $18 million. It has made over $60 million in 10 days.
"The Five-Year Engagement," starring Emily Blunt and Jason Segel, was expected to be number one but instead took in a disappointing $11.2 million and came in at third place. "Pirates! Band of Misfits" opened in second with $11.4 million.
Jason Statham's action flick "Safe" made $7.7 million, and John Cusack's film about Edgar Allen Poe, "The Raven," earned only $7.3 million.
"The Avengers" kicks off the summer film season on May 4 and is expected to storm the box office this upcoming weekend. Some predict it could reach $150 million during its weekend release.
