LAUGHING ALL THE WAY TO THE BANK: Kevin Hart's "Let Me Explain" Makes History As Biggest Opening Weekend For A Comedy Concert!

Kevin Hart's Let Me Explain had a strong opening over the weekend, taking in $17 million bucks.  Get the deets on Kevin's success and the rest of the box office weekend inside....

 

Over the weekend, Kevin Hart's film, Let Me Explain, had an extra impressive opening, taking in over $17 millions dollars!  And because the film only cost Kevin's HartBeat Productions and CodeBlack Films $2.5 million to produce (the film was distributed by Lionsgate), you can see why everybody's fave chocolate drop is laughing all the way to the bank!  

While $17 million might not seem like a large number, you have to take into consideration how well the film performed on each screen. Considering that the film played in just 836 theaters and took in $11,530 per-screen, it's per-screen in take was BETTER than any film in wide release except for “Despicable Me 2". In sum, Kevin KILLED IT this weekend!

Plus, the birthday boy who celebrated (above) his 33rd Birthday at Hollywood hot spot Greystone Manor last night, made history with the biggest opening weekend for a comedy concert movie ever!

Kevin tweeted:

We are making history!!!! #LetMeExplain I just cried tears of fucking JOY!!!! I have the #1 comedy concert film opening of ALL-TIME!!! WOW

This is why I work so f*cking hard....this moment is what I've been dreaming about!!! Thank you god & thank you fans!!! I love y'all 4 this

Lionsgate's executive vice president for theatrical distribution David Spitz told TheWrap, “The challenge for us was cutting through the clutter surrounding the holiday and the other movies,” Our marketing team did a great job of that, and we got a real boost from Kevin on social media.”

Here's how the rest of the box office looked (via Box Office Mojo):

"Let Me explain" was far

"Let Me explain" was far better than the last comedy special he had on television ("You gone learn today..."). It was definitely worth the gas, ticket price, and $8 popcorn.

I don't doubt it was good.

I don't doubt it was good. But nothing on this earth is worth $8 popcorn. lol. I eat before the movie.

Everybody's favorite

Everybody's favorite chocolate drop? The YBF, speak for yourselves. I still don't understand why black women support this fool. I'm all for success and seeing a black man progress, but he has made some of the most offensive jokes about black women, particularly darker skinned women. I understand that he's a comedian, but a comedian will always reveal who he really is and how he truly thinks through the kinds of jokes he tells. He has issues with color and until he stops making such jokes, I will never support his work. Plus, frankly speaking...Kevin is just not that funny. Lil Duval, now that dude is hilarious!

Uhh...and lil Duval isn't

Uhh...and lil Duval isn't offensive? I think Kevin Hart is over-hyped too, but at least he performs shows I can watch without repenting afterwards.
