'Ride Along,' 'That Awkward Moment' tie at Friday box office

By Kyle Johnson,

Universal Pictures' Ride Along keeps chugging at the box office as the Kevin Hart comedy tied with new Zac Efron-led film That Awkward Moment on Friday.

Both comedy films earned $3.9 million to start the Super Bowl weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Though they took in the same amount, projections have Ride Along likely earning about $12 million, which would be good enough for first place as Awkward Moment should follow slightly behind with $10.1 million.

If Ride Along manages $12 million, the film will have earned an impressive $92.7 million domestically. Though the Efron, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller film is only expected to earn $10.1 million, that isn't too bad for a film that only cost $8 million.

Disney's Frozen continues to pull in audiences at the theaters and earned $2.2 million, which could mean the film makes $9.7 for the entire weekend. The animated film has already grossed $353 million domestically.

Variety reports that Jason Reitman's new film Labor Day, starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, only earned $1.9 million for Friday. Current projections have the film taking in $5 million over the weekend.
