You Rate the New Releases: ‘The Five-Year Engagement,’ ‘The Raven,’ ‘Safe’ and ‘Pirates! Band of Misfits’


Chalk another weekend up to the unexpected, as Think Like a Man kinda-sorta surprised everyone by defeating four (!) new releases to take first place at the box office for a second week in a row. Its $18 million was enough to defeat The Pirates! Band of Misfits, which opened at number two with $11.4 million, followed by The Lucky One ($11.3 million), The Hunger Games ($11.2 million) and The Five-Year Engagement ($11.2 million). The week’s other new releases, Safe and The Raven, finished sixth ($7.72 million) and seventh ($7.25 million), respectively.

Not the most active weekend at the box office, but perhaps folks are saving their hard-earned bucks for The Avengers, which finally hits U.S. theaters this Friday following years of anticipation and build-up (and trust me when I say it was all worth it). But before we start geeking out hard over The Avengers, tell us what you thought of the new releases.

As for critics, they liked The Pirates! Band of Misfits the best, giving it an 86% Fresh score, while they liked The Raven the least, scoring it 21% Rotten. Is it the same for you? Sound off below in our polls and rate the new releases based on your experience watching them. Did the box office get it wrong? Tell us which new release you thought was the best …
