Moviegoers went along with Ride Along this weekend. And they helped the comedy break all sorts of records.
The action flick, starring Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, earned $41.2 million its debut weekend. Cloverfield was the top-grossing movie during MLK weekend, up until this weekend, earning $40 million from Friday-Sunday and $46 million in its four-day debut in 2008.
Ride Along also takes the honor of being the biggest Friday-Sunday opening in January history.
Last week’s No.1 movie, the drama thriller Lone Survivor slipped to the No.2 spot and made $23.2 million.
