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.
No 2. The Revenant – $31,800,000. Bringing Total gross in 4th weekend to $89,974,769.
No 3. Star Wars: The Force Awakens – $26,377,000. Bringing Total gross in 5th weekend to $852,309,841.

Paramount Pictures has dropped the first trailer for the next installment in their retconned Star Trek journey.
After 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness‘s mild fan success, Star Trek Beyond appears to have revved its engines in the hands of a new director, Justin Lin, who previously directed four of the Fast and the Furious movies.
The Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” provides an amped-up musical backdrop throughout the clip, also hearkening back to a pivotal scene from the 2009 reboot in which we see a young James T. Kirk rocking out to the classic ‘ 90s track while driving a stolen car.
Producing the film, not directing this time, is J.J. Abrams – who stepped down from directorial duties to focus on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, John Cho, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin and co-writer Simon Pegg are all back for this new film, and facing what is sure to be a very formidable new foe, Idris Elba. Who is nearly rendered unrecognizable under heavy alien prosthetics.
Star Trek Beyond boldly goes into theaters on July 22, 2016.
“Today you will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. And should you win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice we will not go quietly into the night, we will not finish without a fight. We’re going to live on. We’re going to survive. Today we celebrate our …” cue title!

An awesome trailer for The Legend of Tarzan, featuring Alexander Skarsgard as the “Lord of the Apes” and Margot Robbie as Jane dropped today and it looks amazing! Director of the film, David Yates (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 & 2) seems to be bring the jungle legend to life in a very positive way. In the trailer there is beautiful camerawork amidst the trees and what look like come crazy action sequences between the film villains, protagonist, and of course gorillas.
The villain of the film is intriguing, because it involves Christoph Waltz, who is always a great villain. Acting alongside Walts will be Samuel L. Jackson, who will surely bring a manic energy to the film as he always does.
The film obviously is not an adaptation of the Disney animated film, Tarzan, but is more of an adaptation of the collection of books made famous by author Edgar Rice Burroughs. The Legend of Tarzan has a release date set for July 1, 2016.
The first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s next upcoming film, an adaptation of the classic Roald Dahl novel The BFG, was released online today.
