Box Office: ‘Ride Along’ is Number One Again While ‘I, Frankenstein’ Bombs

By Will Ashton

Ride Along

Returning to the number one spot again was Ride Along — which, in his second weekend, turned in $21.1 million. This brings its total domestic gross to $75.4 million.

Not doing as well was the only new wide release of the weekend, I, Frankenstein, which came in sixth place with only $8.2 million. With a budget of $65 million, it looks like this one is a flat-out bomb. Based on what I have heard, I can’t say I’m feeling too bad for it.

Meanwhile, last week’s The Nut Job seems to be holding out OK, coming in third with $12.3 million. This brings the domestic total to $40.2 million.

Also opening this weekend, in limited release, was Gimme Shelter, which pulled in $700,000.

Coming out next week is That Awkward Moment, with Labor Day coming out in wide release. Will That Awkward Moment take the number one spot? Let’s see.
