The Hunger Games ruled the box office for four weeks in a row, but Katniss Everdeen couldn't defeat a brand new flick this time around.

Think Like a Man -- adapted from Steve Harvey's best-selling book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man -- is the first film to break The Hunger Games winning streak grossing $33 million this weekend.
