Ride Along

The top film on Friday is still Ride Along, with $6.3 million on Friday, down 56% from last Friday. That decline certainly could’ve been considerably worse but at this point anything it earns is gravy over the reported $25 million budget and good news for the sequel greenlighted months ahead of the release. Ride Along wins another box office weekend with ease, with $20.1 million.

I, Frankenstein

After two straight weekends of breakout releases, I, Frankenstein brings things to a screeching halt, with just $2.8 million on Friday. The critically annihilated monster movie is more a source of unintentional comedy than any sort of thrills or scares. A weekend of $7.8 million is probably its best case scenario.


Notable Holdovers

The Nut Job falls 48% from last Friday to $2.5 million but will do a lot more work over the rest of the weekend. Look for a second weekend of $10 million.

The only other notable thing worth mentioning is Lone Survivor chugging towards $100 million with another $3.6 million on Friday. It will likely hit that figure by next weekend after it finishes this weekend with around $12 million.

Projected Estimates for the Top Ten (Three-Day)
Estimated Gross
1 Ride Along 20.1
2 Lone Survivor 11.9
3 The Nut Job 10.0
4 Frozen 8.0
5 Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit 7.8

7 American Hustle 6.4
8 The Wolf of Wall Street 4.9
9 August: Osage County 4.7
10 Devil's Due 2.7
