Last week, a movie other than “The Hunger Games” was #1 at the Box Office. The romantic comedy “Think Like a Man” came in at #1 earning over $33 million. But with all the great movies coming out this weekend, its not going to be easy to stay at the top, especially with John Cusack’s ‘The Raven’ coming. Below you’ll find the big flicks being released this weekend with their storylines and trailers as well as the Box Office report and other movies in limited release for the weekend.

FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT – RATED R.
Jason Segel and Emily Blunt play a couple who just can’t seem to get their wedding act together. A cross-country career move acts as the catalyst for a gradual spiral into relationship hell. Stolen smooches, hilarious hunting, frozen toes and even knitwear ensues… A LOT of knitwear!

SAFE – RATE R
Jason Statham stars as a karate-chopping cage fighter who loses everything after he blows a rigged match. When he sees a girl—who he later discovers to be a math prodigy—being tormented by the same gangsters who killed his wife, he takes action to protect her.

THE PIRATES – BAND OF MISFITS – RATED PG
The Pirate Captain (Hugh Grant) fearlessly leads his inept crew, and his big boned parrot, to a life full of adventure and booty. Along the way, the Captain realizes his life’s goal is to become the Pirate of the Year, so he leads his ship to Victorian London, where the competition is held. Alas, the Captain may be woefully under qualified to win the prize. But don’t expect that to stop him, or his crew, from swashbuckling their way through.

THE RAVEN – RATED R
In 19th century Baltimore, the macabre mind of writer Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack) is at its prolific height. Unfortunately, a deranged reader becomes overly inspired by Poe’s work and begins copycatting the grisly murders in the author’s canon. After ruling out Poe as a suspect, cracker-jack detective Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) elicits the writer’s help in solving the murders. Or so he hopes.
