411 Box Office Report: Ride Along Threepeats at #1
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 02.02.2014





The Kevin Hart/Ice Cube comedy Ride Along topped the box office for a third week in a row. The buddy comedy claimed #1 with $12.3 million for the top spot, the first to do so since Gravity in October. The film has now hit $93 million in domestic box office, making it Ice Cube's biggest hit to date in a lead role, and $94.2 million worldwide. The budget was just $25 million.

Disney continued strong with Frozen, which was up two places to #2 in its eleventh week with $9.3 million. That's actually up from last week's gross by 2%, thanks to a "sing-along" version being released in theaters. The film has now $360 million domestically and $864.4 million worldwide on a budget of $150 million. It is the sixth-highest grossing animated film of all-time and #5 is a sure thing, with Despicable Me 2 only $8 million ahead of it.

Disappointing at #3 was R-rated comedy That Awkward Moment, which came in flat $9 million. The film--which stars Zac Efrom, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan--was pegged for a potential box office with in the low-to-mid teens but didn't resonate with audiences. The film averaged just $3,208 from the 2,809 theaters it opened in and poor reviews didn't help. The average B CinemaScore won't help or hurt its legs at the box office, though it will still pull in a profit for Focus Featured considering the $8 million budget and what was a modest marketing campaign.

The Nut Job did a solid job of holding on in its third weekend, down one spot at #4 with $7.6 million. The 3D animated film has now brought in $50.2 million. The budget was $42 million.

Mark Wahlberg's Lone Survivor slipped three spots, ending up at #5 in its fourth week with $7.2 million. The film now comes in at $104.9 million thus far from a budget of $40 million; Universal has to be quite pleased with this one.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit slipped one spot in its third weekend down to #6 with $5.4 million. The film has now brought in $39 million domestically and $85.5 million worldwide on a $60 million budget.

Jason Reitman's latest film failed to strike a spark, as Labor Day bowed at #7 with a disappointing $5.3 million. The film had potential with a critically-loved director and star power from Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, but it didn't manage to bring in $7 million to $10 million that Paramount was hoping for. The film averaged just $2,051 in 2,584 theaters and left audiences feeling "meh" with a B- CinemaScore unlikely to help it. Its budget was $18 million, which may be a trick to make back.

American Hustle was down a spot in its eighth weekend to #8 with $4.3 million. The David O. Russell film has now brought in $132.1 million domestically and $176.8 million on a $40 million budget.

Hanging in at #9 in its sixth week was Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, down one from last weekend. The film brought in $3.6 million, bringing its total to $104.1 million domestically and $226.4 million worldwide on a budget of $100 million.

I, Frankenstein followed up its whiff of an opening weekend with a deep dive in its second. The action-horror flick dropped four spots to #10 with $3.5 million, a rough 59% drop that could be palatable for Lionsgate if not for the miniscule opening weekend. The Aaron Eckhart-starring film brought is DOA at this point with just $14.5 million domestically and $30.7 million worldwide. The film had a $65 million budget.

The weekend box office tally was $85.4 million, up 4% from last year's take of $88.7 million that was led by Warm Bodies' $20.4 million bow. The Super Bowl weekend is traditionally a poor box office performer.

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.
