Box Office: ‘I, Frankenstein’ Scary Low with $10 Million; ‘Ride Along’ Rolls

'Lone Survivor' showing staying power with up to $14 million

Lionsgate’s launch of “I, Frankenstein” was clinging to life at about $3 million for Friday and appeared heading for a $10 million weekend at the U.S. box office. The fantasy-actioner, set in a dystopian world, has generated dismal reviews with a 3% “fresh” rating on the Rotten Tomatoes site.

“I, Frankenstein” stars Aaron Eckhart in a battle between gargoyles and demons and is directed by Stuart Beattie from his own script, based on the graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux. Lakeshore financed the $65 million project.

Meanwhile, Universal’s second weekend of cop comedy “Ride Along” is heading for a second-consecutive victory with as much as $20 million for the weekend.

Early Friday’s figures for the Ice Cube-Kevin Hart vehicle projected in the $5.5 million to $6 million range in its eighth day of release to push the cume to around $60 million.

Uni’s third frame of war drama “Lone Survivor” remained a decent draw with a projected weekend in the $12 million to $14 million range. The Mark Wahlberg starrer performed well in mid-week shows and has gone past $81 million domestically.

Open Road’s second fame of “The Nut Job” was projected to generate strong daytime business on Saturday, which could lift it to about $13 million for the weekend.
