Ride Along still top movie in US

Ice Cube's film is number one at the US box office

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube's Ride Along has stayed strong at the US box office, hanging onto the top spot for the third week.

The buddy cop comedy made 12.3 million dollars (£7.5 million) to stay at number one, meaning its overall haul in America is getting close to 100 million (£61 million).

Disney's Frozen, now the fourth highest-grossing US animated release ever, was in second place with 9.3 million dollars (£5.6 million).

The studio re-released a singalong version of the film, as the movie's soundtrack remains on top of the Billboard 200 chart. The singalong shows added 2.2 million dollars (£1.3 million), as the film crossed the 360 million dollar (£220 million) mark.

Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box office tracker Rentrak, said Frozen " is a movie that will not quit".

"It's been out for 11 weeks and it's still relevant. By adding this singalong component, they basically assured themselves a number two spot this weekend," he said.

That Awkward Moment, starring Zac Efron, Michael B Jordan and Miles Teller, took third place in its opening weekend and s quirrel comedy The Nut Job was in fourth.

The top five was rounded out by Universal's Lone Survivor, which stars Mark Wahlberg. The Navy SEAL drama has now crossed the 100 million dollar mark.
