Weekend Roundup: Box Office Results for 1/24-1/26


Welcome to another edition of WEEKEND ROUNDUP, where we discuss this weekends box office results.  The TOP 3 this weekend were Lone Survivor, Ride Along and The Nut Job.

If this week looks familiar to you, that's because it is.  The Top 3 this weekend are exactly the same as last week.  Same movies, same order.  Unfortunately, the new release, I, Frankenstein, was unable to make waves, coming in at #6, behind Frozen and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

Let's take a look at how the Top 3 did this weekend...


The new comedy, Ride Alongdropped almost 50% from its opening, but still managed to come in first during this slow weekend with $21.3 million.  This puts its total at $75.5 million, an impressive amount for a comedy this earlier in the year and only in its second week.


Lone Survivor had another strong weekend, grossing $12.9 million, bringing its total up to $93.9 million.  With such strong numbers like this, I definitely won't be surprised if this film breaks my initial prediction of $150 million domestically.


The new animated comedy, The Nut Job, continued strong this week, bringing in $12.1 million.  This brings its two-week total up to $40.1 million, coming very close to matching its $42 million production budget.  It still has next week to bring in some decent sales before the much anticipated The Lego Movie hits theaters on February 7th.

Here's a quick rundown of this weekends results:

#1 - Ride Along - $21,299,495

#2 - Lone Survivor - $12,900,960

#3 - The Nut Job - $12,101,118
