Finally the reign of The Hunger Games is over. Tim Story’s (director of the 2 Fantastic Four movies) romantic comedy, Think Like a Man took in nearly twice as much as The Hunger Games. After 5 weeks a new champion has been crowned. This is last big weekend before The Avengers arrive. It is a foregone conclusion that it will take the box office. What will be interesting to see this weekend is if patrons will venture out to see anything. Will it be Jason Statham’s action thriller Safe? Perhaps a dark ride with John Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe in The Raven? Or will Pirates! Band of Misfits, by the makers of Wallace and Gromit, bring out the kiddies? All three will only have one weekend to make their money. After that... the Avengers Assemble! Our money is Statham and Safe
