The Kevin Hart-Ice Cube comedy “Ride Along” cruised to a repeat win at the weekend box office, rolling up just over $21 million in its second lap.
In the process, it blew the doors off the weekend’s only wide opener, “I, Frankenstein,” the special effects-heavy remake of Mary Shelley’s horror classic starring Aaron Eckhart, which finished sixth with a weak $8.2 million three-day total.
The runner-up movie was the Afghan War drama “Lone Survivor” with $12.6 million, giving Universal Pictures the top two movies for the second week in a row and its third straight weekend win. It marks the first time a studio’s films have achieved that in nearly two decades, when Warner Bros. had “On Deadly Ground” and “Ace Ventura” in the first and second positions for two weeks in February 1994.
“Ride Along” upped its domestic total to $75 million and the Mark Wahlberg battle saga has taken in nearly $94 million since opening at No. 1 three weeks ago.
