Hart's 'Ride Along' runs over 'I, Frankenstein' at box office

Associated Press

NEW YORK - The Kevin Hart comedy "Ride Along" continued to speed through a typically quiet box-office frame, while the monster thriller "I, Frankenstein" couldn't be roused from the dead.

Universal's buddy cop comedy "Ride Along," co-starring Ice Cube, cruised to the top of the box office again, taking in $21.2 million in its second weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. The film last week set a January debut record, with $48.6 million.

For the second weekend in a row, Universal claimed No. 1 and No. 2 at the box office, with the Afghanistan war film "Lone Survivor" earning $12.6 million in its fifth week. With a cumulative total of $93.6 million, the relatively inexpensive "Lone Survivor," starring Mark Wahlberg, will soon cross the $100 million mark.

Hollywood will largely cede next weekend to the Super Bowl, except for new releases "Labor Day," starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, and "That Awkward Moment, with Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Final figures will be released Monday.

1. "Ride Along," $21.2 million.

2. "Lone Survivor," $12.6 million.

3. "The Nut Job," $12.3 million.

4. "Frozen," $9 million.

5. "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," $8.8 million.

6. "I, Frankenstein," $8.3 million.

7. "American Hustle," $7.1 million.

8. "August: Osage County," $5 million.

9. "The Wolf of Wall Street," $5 million.

10. "Devil's Due," $2.8 million.
