FINALLY! I’ve broken my losing streak. Ryan B., I want a snazzy rhyme stating I’m a winner. Ride Along nabbed the top spot for a third week in a row with $12.3 million. Kevin Hart is the big man on campus after all.
Frozen Sing-along version was a gamble that paid off. The record breaking animated darling from Disney came in at number two, after 11 weeks in release, with $9.3 million.
Zac Efron’s indie comedy That Awkward Moment came in at number three with $9 million. With a budget of just $8 million, at least this film will see some profit.
The Nut Job took in another $7 million in the number four spot and can celebrate with a total domestic gross of $50 million.
Lone Survivor stayed alive at number five adding another $7 million to its $104 million domestic gross.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit continued to struggle at number six with $5.4 million. Look for this franchise to go the way of the Doo Doo.
The romantic drama Labor Day opened at number seven with just $5.3 million.
American Hustle lost a step, falling one spot to number eight with $4.3 million.
After six weeks in release The Wolf of Wall Street is finally in the black with $3.5 million at number nine, and a total domestic gross of $104 million.
Rounding out the top ten was I, Frankenstein which netted only $3.5 million in its second week of release.
It’s just too sad for me to make a funny comment.

Next week is a tough call. The animated Lego movie, the star studded Monuments Men, and the teen horror comedy Vampire Academy are all hoping for that top spot. I’ll put my money on Clooney and Damon for the win. Tune in to see if I’m right.
Until then, happy movie going!
