The big winner on Friday appears to be a movie that isn't even out yet*audiences largely rejected all four brand-new movies, which may be the latest sign that anticipation for The Avengers is reaching a fever pitch. Thanks to the middling performance of the newcomers, Think Like a Man and The Lucky One easily held on to the top two spots.Think Like a Man fell 55 percent to an estimated $5.5 million on Friday. It's now made $48.4 million, and is just two days away from topping Titanic 3D to become April 2012's highest-grossing movie. Meanwhile, The Lucky One dropped a slightly steeper 57 percent to $3.9 million. The Zac Efron-Nicholas Sparks romantic drama has earned a solid $32.5 million through eight days.Even with what looked like the formula for rom-com success, The Five-Year Engagement only managed to generate $3.5 million in ticket sales on Friday. That's less than half the opening »
