Box Office Breakdown! Jack Ryan Bombs! Lone Survivor Scores! Ride Along Rules The Charts!

Well slap my ears with jelly and bury me in an ant farm. I’m wrong for the 4th week in a row. 2014 is not my year (for autographs either, but more on that later). Pint sized funnyman Kevin Hart took down Chris Pine’s new action thriller. Ride Along won the top spot with an astounding $41 million for the biggest MLK opening weekend ever.

Lone Survivor stayed strong in the number two spot with $23 million. With a budget of $40 million, and a total domestic gross of $74 million so far, this real life Navy Seal drama is a certified hit.

The animated adventure, The Nut Job, opened at number three with $20 million. That should help a little with Brendan Fraser’s bankruptcy problems.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit opened at number four with $17 million, which is nowhere near its $60 million budget. Who thought resurrecting this dead franchise was a good idea?

Frozen is still showing some flurries at number five with another $11.9 million towards its $332 million domestic gross.

American Hustle is riding high with awards and ticket sales at number six and another $10 million for its $116 million domestic total.

Devil’s Due failed to scare up many ticket sales, opening at number seven with just $8.5 million. Note to movie studios – stop with the “self-shot” horror flicks; we’ve had enough.

August: Osage County came in at number eight with $7.5 million. This is one indie flick getting more nominations than ticket sales.

The Wolf of Wall Street plummeted five spots to number nine with $7.5 million for a total domestic gross of $90 million. I’m not financial expert, but with a budget of $100 million, perhaps Paramount should have invested less in this controversial film.

Rounding out the top ten was Saving Mr. Banks with $4.1 million. The Disney charmer enjoyed a six week run in the top ten with a total domestic gross of $75 million, but that hardly makes up for Emma Thompson shameful Oscar snub.

Check out the full box office chart below:

1 Ride Along $41,237,000 $41,237,000
2 Lone Survivor $23,239,000 $74,049,000

Without much opening next week, I’ll put my poker chips on I, Frankenstein for the win. Tune in to see if I’m right.
