‘That Awkward Moment’ Just Behind ‘Ride Along’ at Friday Box Office

‘That Awkward Moment’ Just Behind ‘Ride Along’ at Friday Box Office

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube’s “Ride Along” is heading for a box-office three-peat, after holding off a challenge from the R-rated bro-mantic comedy “That Awkward Moment” on Friday.
Universal’s buddy cop comedy brought in nearly $4 million Friday and is on track for a $12 million third week, which should be good enough for No. 1 on what’s shaping up as a very slow Super Bowl weekend at the box office.
“That Awkward Moment,” which features young stars Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan, was in that same range with a $3.9 million opening day and should wind up at around $10 million for the three days. That’s in line with distributor Focus Features’ projections but a little under where analysts had “Awkward Moment,” the first release from Focus since it absorbed FilmDistrict last fall.
The weekend’s other wide opener, Paramount’s Kate Winslet-Josh Brolin drama “Labor Day,” took in $1.9 million Friday and is looking at seventh place and $5 million for the three days, below expectations that were low to begin with.
There was some good news, provided by some familiar movies.
Disney opened a sing-along version of “Frozen” in 2,057 of its 2,754 theaters and the 3D animated hit blockbuster brought in $2.2 million to finish third Friday, putting it on pace for an $8.5 million in its 11th week. It’s up to $353 million domestically, and more than $815 million worldwide.
Sony’s Best Picture Oscar nominee “American Hustle” added $1.3 million Friday, and the con man comedy should manage around $4.2 million for the three days. That would lift it past the $131 million domestic total of last year’s “Silver Linings Playbook,” and make it director David O. Russell’s biggest box-office hit.
Paramount’s Oscar contender “The Wolf Of Wall Street” did just over $1 million Friday and is on the way to a $3.4 million sixth week. Its domestic total is just over $100 million, making it the fourth of director Martin Scorsese’s movies to manage the feat – and all of them have starred Leonardo DiCaprio. “Shutter Island,” “The Departed” and “The Aviator” are the others.
“Lone Survivor,” Universal’s Afghan War drama starring Mark Wahlberg, should cross the $100 million mark this weekend, its fourth in wide release. It took in $2.3 million Friday and is heading for a $6.8 million three-day total. That put it in fourth place, ahead of “The Nut Job,” on Friday.
Open Road’s animated movie featuring the voice of Will Arnett added $1.7 million Friday and should get a Saturday-Sunday boost from families and come in at around $7.6 million for the three days, which would up its domestic total to nearly $50 million after three weeks.
Paramount’s “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” was sixth Friday with $1.7 million and on course for a $5.4 million third week. The domestic total for the Chris Pine thriller is an underwhelming $35 million, but it has taken in $46 million overseas.
