'Ride Along' still in driver's seat of box office, No. 1 again

Written by Barbara Vancheri on .

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are riding high again, with “Ride Along” the No. 1 movie for the second week in a row. “Lone Survivor” continues to attract patrons with its real-life story of an ill-fated Navy SEAL mission while “I, Frankenstein” could use a jolt of the paddles to bring it to box office life. 
Not registering in the top 10 is “Gimme Shelter,” playing only at AMC-Loews at the Waterfront and Cinemark Tarentum in the Pittsburgh area. It’s on just 385 screens (compared with the 3,472 of “The Nut Job” and 3,387 of the new Jack Ryan movie) and brought in $720,950 in its first weekend. 
Here are the early estimates courtesy of Rentrak: 
1. “Ride Along” — $21,161,530, bringing its North American gross so far to $75,406,840
2. “Lone Survivor” — $12,600,570, for $93,614,531 since release. 
3. “The Nut Job” — $12,316,000, or $40,271,245 in two weeks. 
4. “Frozen” — $9,035,000, for $347,816,000 and that’s before this weekend’s sing-along hits theaters. 
5. “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” — $8,800,000, or $30,168,133 so far. 
6. “I, Frankenstein” — $8,275,000. 
7. “American Hustle” — $7,100,000, nudging its running gross to $127,038,753.
8. “August: Osage County” — $5,041,000, for $26,526,501 to date. 
9. “The Wolf of Wall Street” — $5,000,000, edging toward the $100 million mark with $98,030,454.
10. “Devil’s Due” — $2,750,000, or $12,885,963 since last week’s release.
