'Think Like A Man': How It Knocked 'Hunger Games' Off Its Throne

The success of "Think Like a Man" shouldn't surprise anyone. For starters, it's based on a best-selling self-help book by Steve Harvey, and many box-office experts had predicted that it would finally be the movie to knock "The Hunger Games" out of its #1 spot. But it was unclear just how big "Think Like a Man" would be. The film grossed $33 million over the weekend and according to Box Office Mojo's weekend wrap-up, "the movie had an 'A' CinemaScore, which went up to an 'A+' among men and those under the age of 25." As Vulture put it, "It's hard to overstate the enormity of the 'TLAM' victory this past weekend." $33 million may not sound like a lot when compared to the opening weeks of "The Hunger Games" and its box-office tear, but there are two things to consider when looking at that number: competition and screens. "Think Like a Man" had two worthy opponents to defeat on its way to box-office glory. First, there was the reigning champion, "The Hunger Games." Even in its fifth week, the YA adaptation still showed signs of life, crossing the $350 million mark this weekend. Then, there was "The Lucky One,' which boasted the Nicholas Sparks brand name and an adult role from teen heartthrob Zac Efron. On paper, these two could have proved too much for the rom-com, especially when you consider the second factor. The large haul for "Think Like a Man" is so much more impressive when you compare the number of screens each film played on. "The Hunger Games," even in its fifth weekend, was still playing on 3,752 screens, almost twice as many as "Think Like a Man," and yet the latter did more than two times the business. Just as telling, "The Lucky One" debuted on 1,000 more screens than "Think Like a Man," yet made more than $10 million less.

Bow Wow Calls Trayvon Martin Shooting "Disturbing," Says Race Is Not The Issue

Rapper Bow Wow is offering a different perspective on the murder of Trayvon Martin. Like many who have commented on the shooting, the 25-year-old was struck by the story, but not just because of the racial aspect. "It's definitely a tragic situation for any kid, not just because he's black," Bow tells Hip-Hop Wired. "You have kid's dying every day, and especially buy a gun. From situations like this [I] hope that we can learn from it, and that we can turn a situation like this into a positive, and just bring awareness." More than anything the Cash Money rapper, who is also father to a one-year-old daughter, wants Martin's parents to make it through. "I hope that his family will be okay, I hope they can overcome this situation. I see a lot of celebrities, ball players...everybody trying to put their bid in and help out, and I just want to send my condolences and put my blessings on it. "Like I said, it's a terrible situation to lose another young man. We don't know what he could have been. I saw pictures of him with his football uniform on, he could've been the next Reggie Bush. He could've been the next whoever, so to have a kid— any kid's—life cut short, and now I have a kid, it's definitely disturbing. Especially [since] we don't know all of the details of how it went down. I just want to send my condolences out to his family and I hope that they overcome this situation." Bow is the latest of many public figures who have given their opinion on the tragic shooting. Both the president and first lady have spoken on the tragedy, while many in the hip-hop community, have been very vocal about the incident. Harlem MC, A$AP Rocky, made mention to Martin during his set at Coachella over the weekend, while Wyclef Jean reenacts the shooting in the video for the song, "Justice." Martin's accused killer, George Zimmerman was release from jail early Monday morning (April 23), after posting bond.

50 SUED FOR SONG SAMPLE

In the latest “rapper gets sued for unauthorized used of sample” news, 50 Cent is in the hot-seat. In a move very reminiscent of Robin Hood, 50 Cent is being sued for allegedly stealing a sample for use in song that he, in turn, released for free. In the New York lawsuit, Robert Poindexter, of the band The Persuaders, claims that , in 2009, 50 used a sample from his band’s song “Love Gonna Pack Up and Walk Out,” on a song called “Redrum.” 50 put “Redrum” on a mixtape called “War Drum” that he posted online for free. Poindexter claims that 50 knew he was sampling the song, but didn’t feel he had to pay for it, because he wasn’t charging for his song. The lawsuit alleges: “Fifty Cents has not denied the infringement, but appears to be basing his defense solely on a frivolous and immaterial claim that the illegal version is not being commercially exploited, but is given away for free.” “Fifty Cents” though? LOL The spelling may not be correct, but the numbers are clear. Poindexter is suing 50 for unspecified statutory damages and an additional $600,000 in punitive damages, plus interest. TMZ said that calls made to 50′s people have not been returned.

George Zimmerman Released On Bail In Trayvon Martin Shooting Case

ANFORD, Fla. -- George Zimmerman was released around midnight Sunday from a county jail on $150,000 bail as he awaits his second-degree murder trial for fatally shooting Trayvon Martin. The neighborhood watch volunteer was wearing a brown jacket and blue jeans and carrying a paper bag. He met a man in a white vehicle and drove away. His ultimate destination is being kept secret for his safety and it could be outside Florida. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said at a hearing Friday he cannot have any guns and must observe a 7 p.m.-to-6 a.m. curfew. Zimmerman also surrendered his passport. He had to put up 10 percent, or $15,000, to make bail. His father had indicated he might take out a second mortgage. He left the intake building at the John E. Polk Correctional Facility with an unidentified man, carrying a few bags.
