‘Ride Along’ Takes in Just Over a Million Dollars in Late Night Showings

Ride Along

Universal’s comedy “Ride Along,” starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, earned $1.060 million in late night shows on Thursday.

Movie is opening in 1,727 and expected to take the top spot this weekend, scoring in the mid- to high-$30 million range over the course of the four-day Martin Luther King Day holiday weekend.

Paramount’s comedy, “Pain and Gain,” took in $750,000 in in its first late-night shows last year and Universal’s  “The Best Man Holiday” opened with $689,000 on Nov. 14.

Paramount’s “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” is the other big newcomer this weekend, expected to earn in the low $20 million range. Universal’s holdover, “Lone Survivor,” should be right around that same mark.

“Jack Ryan” grossed an estimated $325,000 in late-night shows Thursday at approximately 1,800 locations (including 300 Imax locations) and Fox’s horror entry “Devil’s Due” took in $300,000.

“Gravity” and “12 Years a Slave,” two of the most Oscar-nominated films, re-enter the box office fray this weekend as well.
