Something special happened this weekend! Two films actually moved up one place from their spots in last weekend’s box office report!

What was interesting is that three big new releases came out over the weekend and only two of them got in the top five. Unsurprisingly, the Action/Sci-Fi film The 5th Wave is the one new film that couldn’t place. Check out the specifics on how everything placed in the January 22-24 box office below.

January 15-17 Box Office Results

In a surprising turn of events, the Buddy-Cop Comedy sequel to the 2014 film, Ride Along, staring Ice Cube and Kevin Heart, unseated Star Wars: The Force Awakens from its spot as Number 1 in the weekend box office for the first time since the film’s release back in December 18th, 2015.

This is no doubt due to Ride Along 2‘s relentlessness during the last few weeks of advertising leading up to the movie’s release.  You couldn’t turn on a TV program or watch a YouTube clip without seeing a trailer for it.  Also, the film’s 2014 predecessor was considered a success – making $155 Million on a budget of only $25 Million.

Other than the surprise of having Ride Along 2 take first place for this weekend’s box office, nothing else comes as too much of a surprise.  Check out the top 5 places of the January 15-17 box office below.

No 1. Ride Along 2 – $35,320,000 opening weekend.
