Kevin Hart, Ice Cube & Tika Sumpter TOP The Box Office With "Ride Along"!

Good news for the new comedy with YBF stars Kevin Hart, Ice Cube & Tika Sumpter!  The case just nabbed the #1 spot at the box office with Ride Along.  Deets inside...
Opening weekend for the Tim Story-directed comedy Ride Along was a big one.  The $25 million flick reportedly raked in $32 million dollars.  And it easily beat out Mark Wahlberg's Lone Survivor, which is in it's second week and came in at #2.
The funny flick is set to reach $39 mill once this MLK Holiday weekend wraps up.
