    Friday Box Office: 'Ride Along' Reigns Again, 'Awkward Moment' Connects, 'Labor Day' Lags

    For theaters, Super Bowl Weekend is sometimes an early Valentine's Day, as the week's new releases tend to have a rom-com theme.

    Friday Box Office: 'Ride Along' & 'Lone Survivor' Trump Sole New Wide Release 'I, Frankenstein'

    Two Universal films ("Ride Along" and "Lone Survivor") beat back "I, Frankenstein" (Lionsgate), the sole new wide release.

    'Lone Survivor' Stuns in Wide Release; 'Her' is Weak, 'August: Osage County' Strong
