*”About Last Night” grossed almost $30 million during its opening weekend.
The films comedic stars Kevin Hart and Regina Hall sat down with The Russ Parr Morning Show and explained why the romantic comedy is not just for black people.
*’About Last Night‘ is in theaters tonight!
Spend your lovers day, with Kevin Hart, Regina Hall, Michael Ealy, and Joy Bryant. Their romantic comedy follows new love for two couples as they journey from the bar to the bedroom.
Comedian extraordinaire Hart says you will have a great Valentine’s Day if you watch ‘About Last Night.’
On its way to the top of the ticket sales, “Ride Along” managed to kill off “I Frankenstein” the special effects-heavy remake of Mary Shelley’s horror classic starring Aaron Eckhart, which finished sixth with a weak $8.2 million three-day total.
*Universal’s “Ride Along” grossed a solid $1.1 million as it began rolling out in theaters at 8 p.m. Thursday, on the eve of the long Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is expected to beat Paramount’s “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” with a four-day debut in the low- to mid-$30 million range, marking a major win for Kevin Hart as he stars for the first time as a comedy lead.
Thursday night numbers weren’t immediately available for “Jack Ryan,” although rivals suggested “Ride Along” easily came in ahead.
But Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit could be its only real competition to take over the number one spot from Long Survivor.
*USA Today is under fire for a headline that accompanied its story about the box office numbers for “The Best Man Holiday” in comparison to Disney’s “Thor: The Dark World.”
“Holiday Nearly Beat Thor as Race-Themed Films Soar,” the paper wrote in its box office report, prompting many to voice their objections across social media.
Many felt that while the cast is predominantly African American, Universal‘s sequel centers on relationships, not race. The uproar led USA Today to twice modify its headline.
It currently reads: “’Best Man Holiday’ nearly beats mighty ‘Thor’.”
