411 Box Office Report: Ride Along Spends Second Week at #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.26.2014





It was more of the same at the box office this weekend, as the Kevin Hart/Ice Cube comedy Ride Along claimed #1 for the second week in a row. The film topped the box office with $21.2 million to claim the spot for a second frame, falling 49%. That drop is pretty decent considering the film's tremendous first weekend opening; Universal has done well promoting its monster opening. The film has grossed a total of $75.4 million so far from a mere $25 million budget.

Mark Wahlberg's Lone Survivor also held steady, sticking in at #2 in its third week with $12.6 million. The film is turning out to be quite the profit for Universal, clocking in at $93.6 million so far from a budget of $40 million.

The Nut Job held on strongly in its second weekend, staying even at #3 with $12.3 million. The film had a solid 37% hold, which is a good number for a family film. The 3D animated entry has now brought in $40.2 million to date with more money certainly on the way considering the lack of family films coming up; the budget was $42 million.

Speaking of family films, Frozen continues its impressive run at the box office by climbing up a spot from last week to #4 in its tenth week. The film brought in $9 million, a mere 23% drop from last week and the lowest drop of the top ten. The Walt Disney Animation film has now grossed $347.8 million domestically and $810.3 million worldwide on a budget of $150 million. It is the sixth-highest grossing animated film of all-time, with Despicable Me 2 just ahead of it with $368 million.

While Frozen held on strong, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit began to fade way. The Chris Pine-starring action thriller fell one spot to #5 in its second weekend with $8.8 million. While the 43% drop would normally be considered good for an action franchise, the relatively low opening weekend gross mitigates that and makes it a disappointing drop. The film will very likely be profitable though, with $30.2 million domestically and $76.7 million worldwide on a $60 million budget.

I, Frankenstein was anything but alive in its opening weekend, slipping in at #6. The Aaron Eckhart-starring action-horror film brought in just $8.3 million, which is not even half of the high teens that Lionsgate was hoping for. The film opened at less than half of the $19.7 million that Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters did last year and looks to be a disaster for Lionsgate; the B CinemaScore won't help at all and the scathing critical reaction will help seal its fate. The film had a $65 million budget.

American Hustle came in at #7 in its seventh weekend, down one spot from last week with $7.1 million. The David O. Russell film continues to ride its awards buzz with a mere 28% drop; it has now brought in $127 million domestically and $162.4 million on a $40 million budget.

Augest: Osage County was even at #8 in its fifth weekend with $5 million. The Julia Roberts/Meryl Streep dramedy has grossed $26.5 million domestically and $35.5 million worldwide on a budget of $20 million.

Steady at #9 in its fifth week was Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. The film brought in $5 million, bringing its total to $98 million domestically and $175.1 million worldwide on a budget of $100 million.

Devil's Due followed up its low opening last weekend with a hefty drop, down threr to #10 with a mere $2.8 million. The film took a 67% drop, which is hefty for even the horror franchise and worse when you consider last weekend's weak start. The movie has brought in $12.9 million domestically and $18.7 million worldwide on a budget of $8 million. Fox has to be thanking someone that horror films are cheap.

The weekend box office tally was $114.4 million, up 9% from last year's take of $112.2 million that was led by Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunter's aforementioned opening

Note: Numbers include Sunday estimates and are three-day estimates. A studio recoups 55% of a film's grosses on average, meaning it needs to approximately double its budget to be profitable during its theatrical run.
