Why Think Like A Man Too Is Headed for Number One

With Think Like A Man Too hitting theaters nationonwide Friday, predictions for the film are floating everywhere. The widely accepted notion is that Too is slated to hit #1 this weekend in lieu of Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys.

However, that view is not completely based off of box office for the original Think Like A Man. It's based off of one person: Kevin Hart.

Hart has proven to be a box office success.

Don't believe that statement? The proof is in the pudding.

Since 2011, Kevin Hart has starred in six major motion pictures: Kevin Hart: Laugh at My Pain, Think Like A Man, Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain, "Grudge Match," Ride Along and "About Last Night."

Hart's most successful of those films, Ride Along, which grossed over $40 million during opening weekend, and $134 million total, was the second time a movie featuring the comedian grossed over $40 million during opening weekend and over $100 million total.

The comedian's most recent box office success, About Last Night, which debuted during Valentine's Day, has grossed nearly $50 million to date.

Not to mention, Kevin Hart and the ensemble cast of Think Like A Man topped the box office, in 2012, for two straight weeks, opening with $33 million, and eventually topping over $90 million.

Kevin Hart has quickly become one of Hollywood's most sought after comedy stars. And with four more film projects in the works through 2016, continued box office success seems inevitable for the comedic superstar and all of his films.
