Ride Along

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart's Ride Along continued its reign at the weekend box office, beating out monster thriller I, Frankenstein, which debuted with disappointing numbers.

Ride Along took in $21.1 million this weekend to bring its two week total to $75.4 million. Last week, it set a January debut record with $48.6 million over the three-day holiday weekend.

I, Frankenstein had a disappointing opening, debuting at #6 with just $8.3 million. Aaron Eckhart stars as Mary Shelley's famous monster in a modern-day setting, costing $65 million to produce.

Lone Survivor held at #2 with $12.6 million to bring its cumulative total to $93.6 million; the animated The Nut Job also held steady at #3 with $12.3 million and $40.2 million total ticket sales thus far; Disney's Frozen earned $9 million for #4; and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit closed out the top 5 with $8.8 million.

That's a wrap for this weekend. This upcoming week, look out for the release of Zac Efron's romantic comedy That Awkward Moment, and the Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet drama Labor Day.
