Comedy sequel Think Like a Man Too had a solid first place opening on Friday, while Clint Eastwood's Jersey Boys failed to make much noise.

Playing at 2,225 locations, Think Like a Man Too took the top spot with an estimated $12.2 million. That's almost identical to the first movie's $12.1 million. Considering it's a sequel opening during the Summer, it's likely to be more front-loaded; still, a weekend north of $30 million is likely.

In second place, 22 Jump Street plummeted 63 percent to an estimated $9.4 million. Keeping in mind how big the movie's opening day was, that drop isn't entirely surprising. The comedy sequel has earned $91.9 million through eight days, and should pass $100 million sometime today.

How to Train Your Dragon 2
fell 59 percent to an estimated $7.6 million. That's a rough drop for an animated movie: in comparison, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted fell 51 percent, while Monsters University fell 53 percent. For the weekend, How to Train Your Dragon 2 should earn around $25 million.

In fourth place, Jersey Boys opened to an estimated $4.64 million. That's below Rock of Ages, which opened to $5.3 million around the same time in 2012. It is at least slightly higher than Eastwood's last movie, J. Edgar ($4.26 million), though that's a minor consolation. For the weekend, Jersey Boys will likely take in around $12 million.

Maleficent
rounded out the Top Five with an estimated $4 million. That's down just 31 percent from last Friday. To date, Maleficent has earned $177 million, and it remains on pace to ultimately eclipse $200 million.

Weekend Projections

1. Think Like a Man Too - $30 million
2. 22 Jump Street - $28 million
3. How to Train Your Dragon - $25 million
4. Maleficent - $12.5 million
5. Jersey Boys - $12 million
