With two weeks of largely unimpressive, unsuccessful new releases, it’s unsurprising that last week’s Ride Along managed to top the charts once again, burying this weekend’s new release under several layers of holdover films.

Ride Along
On Friday, it looked like it was going to be a normal weekend—several unremarkably-rated releases entered theaters, with equally unremarkable projected earnings for the weekend; odds were that Lone Survivor would take the highest earnings, and the other releases would populate the higher regions of the charts. This was not the case, as the most unassuming release, Ride Along, took in the highest earnings.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit
This weekend offers quite the variety of films—an action-thriller that jumpstarts a long-dormant franchise, a campy cop buddy comedy, a zany animated family film, and a found-footage horror flick.

Please see the publicity still above as a representation of the film’s anticipated critical response.

Will Arnett and Katherine Heigl Talk THE NUT JOB, Creating the Voices for Their Characters, Collaborating with the Director and Animators, and More – Director Peter Lepeniotis’ animated 3D comedy caper, The Nut Job, follows the adventures of Surly (voiced by Will Arnett), an enterprising but mischievous squirrel who’s banished from his park by a villainous raccoon (voiced by Liam Neeson) for destroying the winter food supply. To help his pals in the park survive the winter, he plans a heist of his town’s biggest nut shop and takes the ragtag crew he’s assembled on an action-packed adventure they’ll never forget. 7 years 12 weeks ago via donnieyen
