Romantic comedy "Think Like a Man" easily beat four new films to win the U.S. and Canadian box office race for a second time. The film led domestic charts with an 18.0 million U.S. dollar total from Friday through Sunday, according to studio estimates compiled by Reuters on Sunday. New movies including adult comedy "The Five-Year Engagement" didn't come close, each grabbing about 11 million or less. "Think Like a Man" brought its 10-day sales to nearly 61 million. The movie features an ensemble cast and is based on a best-selling relationship guide by comedian Steve Harvey. Among the newcomers, animated family film "The Pirates! Band of Misfits" performed best with 11.4 million and second place. Close behind in third place, the love story "The Lucky One" added 11.3 million during its second weekend in theaters. "The Five-Year Engagement" opened at a disappointing No. 5 with 11.2 million, slightly below projections. The movie stars Jason Segel and Emily Blunt as a couple whose walk down the aisle runs into repeated interruptions. Meanwhile, the superhero movie "The Avengers" stormed into overseas theaters with record-breaking sales. Big-budget, effects-filled "Avengers" hauled in a massive 178 million since Wednesday. The 3D film from Disney's Marvel studio set opening-weekend records in 12 territories. "Avengers" reaches North American (U.S. and Canadian) theaters on Friday to kick off the summer movie season.
