Going into the weekend many had expected That Awkward Moment to top the US box office, but in the end Ride Along hit number 1 for the third week in a row. It took $12.3 million over the weekend, with $92 million in the bank so far. Frozen took second place with $9.3 million, thanks to the release of a sing-along version which pushed its gross up a little from last weekend.
Awkward Moment ended up in third spot with $9 million, less than the $10-$12 million that was expected. However as it only cost $7 million to make, it should still turn a profit.
The only other new entry was Labor Day, which took $5.3 million. It’s being seen as a bit of a disappointment, although the fact it got pushed from a prime Oscar-bait release to January shows the studio didn’t have a huge amount of faith in it.
Take a look below for the US box office top 10 for the weekend of January 31st-February 2nd.
