Kevin Hart? He’s too big to be bothered about that. It’s Chris Tucker: The Next Generation. The little man will be the biggest of big deals if “About Last Night” blows up Valentine’s Day. Good luck getting him to check that ego at the door. A few more fat, lazy, limp comedies like “Ride Along” and he’ll wear that out and take an early retirement.
“Ride Along” is having another boffo weekend. But it dropped some 60% from last weekend, down to $20 million. Not bad, but that’s a sign folks have seen it, passed on the word, moved on.
“I, Frankenstein” is opening at $9 million, despite having IMAX and 3D screens galore.
“Jack Ryan” lost half its audience and stays in the top ten, not much better. Rebooted? Not really. It will only have reached $30 million/US by Sunday night, after two weeks. Weak.
