Philly’s Kevin Hart in “Think Like a Man Too,” and Villanova grad Vincent Piazza in “Jersey Boys.” Both films are on their way to earning top spots at the weekend box office.

Two films with local ties are on their way to earning top spots at the weekend box office: Philly comedian Kevin Hart’s Think Like a Man Too, and Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys, which follows the rise of Franki Valli and the Four Seasons, and stars Villanova grad Vincent Piazza. More from Variety:

It’s deja vu for Kevin Hart at the box office with Sony/Screen Gem’s Think Like a Man Too heading for an estimated $34 million opening weekend at the U.S. box office.


That’s the same turf occupied two years ago by the original Think Like a Man, which opened with $33.6 million. The sequel started solidly with an estimated $12 million Friday, including $1.8 million in Thursday evening shows.

Friday forecasts pegged “Think Like a Man” with another $13 million on Saturday and between $8 million and $9 million Sunday.

Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys, the weekend’s other opener, appeared to be performing better than expected in recent days with an estimated $6 million on Friday—with trackers expecting an $18 million opening weekend to finish fourth behind the second weekends for 22 Jump Street and How to Train Your Dragon 2.
