Weekend B.O. May 18-20 (Rihanna Fails To Knock Over Avengers)

nullNot even Battleship with the awesome, blinding force of power known to the world and the cosmos as Rihanna could beat The Avengers this weekend. Once again the Marvel film was No.1 this weekend, while Battleship underperformed, making some $10 million less than what most film box office analysts had predicted.

Meanwhile still in the top ten is Think Like A Man, but fading. Though it'll will no doubt reach the $90 million mark for sure; as it stands, it'll fall short of the golden $100 million goal post. But who's complaining? The film still is the highest grossing black film in quite a while. 

However, whether this translates into film studios backing more black films is very unlikely. The indie route will still be the way to go
