Another slam-dunk weekend for Think Like a Man! The romantic comedy, which stars an ensemble cast including Kevin Hart and Meagan Good, stayed at No. 1 despite stiff competition from The Five-Year Engagement, which opened this weekend. Expected to beat TLAM to number one, the Emily Blunt and Jason Segel starrer disappointed with a weak $11.2 million debut and opened at an embarrassing fifth place.

An additional $18 million in ticket sales this weekend brings Think Like a Man's total box office to $60.9 million, on track to becoming one of the most successful African-American-targeted films in recent memory. The strong numbers lead some analysts to believe the film has strong crossover appeal to general audiences.

Overseas, Disney and Marvel Studio's The Avengers dominated, grossing a record-breaking $178.4 million in 39 countries. The superhero ensemble will roll into theaters in America next week and is expected to end Think Like a Man's run at number one.
