So, guess who really likes Kevin Hart? America. For the second weekend in a row, "Ride Along" took the top spot at the box office. This is a big win for Universal, with the $25 million comedy already crossing $75 million, and looking very comfortably at $100 million in the distance. How long until a sequel is greenlit?

Ride Along

So, guess who really likes Kevin Hart? America. For the second weekend in a row, "Ride Along" took the top spot at the box office. This is a big win for Universal, with the $25 million comedy already crossing $75 million, and looking very comfortably at $100 million in the distance. How long until a sequel is greenlit?

As for the rest of the field, ticket buyers spent $23 million on the 9 Best Picture nominees, but that's not where the story is. It was war drama "Lone Survivor" and family fare "The Nut Job" and "Frozen" that helped pad out the top five. Meanwhile, falling outside the top five was "I, Frankenstein"—with its dumb-looking CGI monster-thingy fooling nobody—and taking a paltry $8.2 million. Aaron Eckhart dropped the Dennis Wilson biopic because he was too tired from making this? Time to make some different life decisions.

In other releases: "The Dallas Buyers Club," "12 Years A Slave," "Nebraska" and "Gravity" all saw a boost in ticket sales as they returned and added screens to their current run. Full top ten below.

1. Ride Along $21.1 million ($75.4 mil)
2. Lone Survivor $12.6 million ($93.6 mil)
3. The Nut Job $12. 3 million ($40.2 mil)
4. Frozen $9 million ($347.8 mil)
5. Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit $8.8 million ($30.1 mil)
6. I, Frankstein $8.2 million
7. American Hustle $7.1 million ($127 mil)
8. August: Osage County $5 million ($26.5 mil)
9. The Wolf Of Wall Street $5 million ($98 mil)
10. Devil's Due $2.7 million ($12.8 mil)
