'Ride Along' Remains #1 on Monday with $1.35 Million

on January 28, 2014 by Daniel Garris

Universal's Ride Along took in $1.35 million on Monday to lead the daily box office for an eleventh consecutive day. The break-out comedy starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube was down 74 percent from Sunday and down 81 percent from last Monday's inflated Martin Luther King Day performance. Ride Along continues to exceed expectations with an eleven-day take of $76.89 million. That is 24 percent stronger than the $62.04 million eleven-day start of 2010's The Book of Eli and leaves Ride Along $23.11 million away from reaching the $100 million domestic milestone.

Fellow Universal release Lone Survivor claimed second place with $0.917 million. The Peter Berg directed war film starring Mark Wahlberg was down 73 percent from Sunday and down 76 percent from last Monday. Lone Survivor has grossed $94.77 million after 18 days of wide release. That places the film on the verge of surpassing the $95.72 million final domestic gross of 2012's Zero Dark Thirty and leaves the film just $4.28 million away from the $100 million mark.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit placed in third with $0.678 million. Paramount's attempted franchise re-launch starring Chris Pine and Keira Knightley was down 71 percent from Sunday and down 74 percent from last Monday. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has grossed $31.13 million in eleven days, placing the film an underwhelming 8.5 percent behind the $34.02 million 2012's This Means War had grossed at the same point in its run.

Disney's Frozen finished in fourth for the day with $0.657 million. The 3D computer animated blockbuster was down 77 percent from Sunday and down 85 percent from last Monday. Frozen has grossed $348.56 million to date, leaving the film on the verge of reaching the $350 million mark. Frozen should get an extra boost this coming weekend from the release of a sing-along version of the film.

Lionsgate's I, Frankenstein rounded out the day's top five with $0.621 million. The 3D action horror film starring Aaron Eckhart fell 73 percent from Sunday. I, Frankenstein has grossed a very disappointing $9.23 million in its first four days of release. That places the film 51 percent behind the $18.77 million four-day start of 2010's Legion.

Open Road's The Nut Job claimed sixth place with $0.615 million. Places three through six were especially close on Monday, as The Nut Job trailed Jack Ryan by just $63,114 for the day. The Nut Job has grossed a stronger than expected $40.67 million in eleven days, placing it 7 percent ahead of the $38.04 million eleven-day take of 2009's Hotel for Dogs.
