Mania Box Office Report: Riding Strong

Ride Along Wins Again!

It looks as if Ride Along joins a special few movies in the past year that have accomplished the three-peat. That’s right Maniacs, the Ice Cube and Kevin Hart comedy joins Gravity and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. The other big news is that Frozen actually remained in second place all because they released a sing-along version in theaters. A smart move by Disney and what did it cost them, a few new downloads for each theater. 


Did you know that RoboCop opened over seas already? Ray Subers of Box Office Mojo had this to report: “Robocop (2014) opened to $5.5 million from Malaysia, Taiwan and Singapore this weekend. That's about even with the first Iron Man, which reinforces the notion that Asian markets are going to be particularly strong for this Sony remake. Robocop (2014) expands in to 40 more territories next weekend ahead of its domestic debut on February 12th”. On track with Iron Man? We shall see.

This week we have The Lego Movie to check out. I recommend a late show to avoid the kiddies.

The first time I saw the Lego Movie trailer, I thought "WTF? Thsi is so dumb"

The more I see the trailers the more I want to see it now. LOL!  Glad my youngest is interested as well. Great excuse to go see it. :)

So Wonder Woman is making her big screen debut, in a Lego movie?  Hmmmmm.   Another one of a million indicators that Warner Brothers doesn't know what to do with their DC properties.

Still, little sad that there won't be any Marvel characters.  Maybe we could have sneeked in a crossover that way. Oh well, it looks like fun just the same.

Toran, at least Michelangelo of TMNT was there in a group shot.

To me this is the next Batman movie! 

Ride along is a passable movie one time forget movie.  No way shortie can replace Tucker or Eddie.  The only real improvement on the movie is Lawrence as main baddie.  They needed somebody a little newer and scarier.  Or at least a henchman that was more badass than Ice cube for fighting abilty.

It looks fun but with Warner Brothers behind it there really wasn't any chance of the Marvel minifigures getting in.

 Warner Bros. is doing just fine.  Gravity and Her are 2 of the best sci-fi flicks this or any year. As for the Lego movie...if you can't get in touch with your inner 10 year old...your job is reduced to driving the kids there, paying for tickets and refreshments and when it's done driving them home. Whether a 30 something man likes this or not is irrelevant...it's not intended for you.
