‘Ride Along 2’ Knocks ‘The Force Awakens’ Off The Top Of The Box Office
Four weeks after staying atop the Box office listings, Star Wars, The Force Awakens has finally given way to another movie.
Perhaps we’re permitted a laugh since it was knocked off by Kevin Hart’s and Ice Cube’s cop comedy “Ride Along 2”.
‘Ride Along 2’ opened at the weekend with $34 million at the box office as ‘The Force Awakens’ earnings dropped to $25 million in its fifth week of release.
‘The Force Awakens’ holds the privilege of breaking a record set by ‘Avatar’ after grossing an estimated $1.8 billion globally.
Leonardo Di Caprio’s ‘The Revenant’ comes in at number two with $29.5 million in its second week.
With 12 Oscar nominations for ‘The Revenant’, it appears the movie can do no wrong.
Michael Bay’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” and ‘Daddy’s Home,” starring Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg came in at fourth and fifth earning $16 million and $9.3 million respectively.
