Philly’s Kevin Hart is being touted all over the web as the “year’s breakout star,” after his newest film Think Like a Man Too sailed to No. 1 at the weekend box office. Though, as Entertainment Tonight points out, it didn’t quite hit the mark of some of his previous films:

The film pulled in a solid $30 million in its opening weekend, already passing its $24 million budget. However, despite opening at the top spot, it earned $3 million less than the first film’s opening in April 2012, and $11 million less that Hart’s previous 2014 hit Ride Along which opened huge in January.

Another local-centric film that opened this weekend, Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys opened in fourth place, taking in $13.5 million.
