It’s deja vu for Kevin Hart at the box office with Sony/Screen Gem’s “Think Like a Man 2″ 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.”
