Down at the Box Office: Action-Comedy “Ride Along” Breaks Record and Is New Number 1

Ride Along (starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube) comes in first at the box office earning $41.2 million its debut weekend.

The film also takes the honor of being the biggest Friday-Sunday opening in January history taking the honor from Cloverfield (a movie I hate for numerous reasons) which was the top-grossing movie during MLK weekend, up until this weekend, earning $40 million from Friday-Sunday and $46 million in its four-day debut in 2008.

The drama thriller Lone Survivor (starring Mark Wahlberg, woot woot!) slipped to the No.2 spot and made $23.2 million. The Nut Job coming in third and Jack Shadow: Shadow Recruit debuting in fourth with Frozen rounding out the top five.
