Box Office: Jack Ryan & Devil No Match for Ride Along, Nut Job!

Ride Along, the Kevin Hart/Ice Cube comedy, opened in 1st with $41.2 million and The Nut Job, the family-friendly, animated comedy opened in 3rd with $20.6 million. That’s the highest opening ever for a movie from Open Road Films whose recent duds included last November’s Free Birds.
