Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Kevin Hart & Ice Cube’s “Ride Along” Breaks January and MLK Weekend Records

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube together brought the laughs and broke some records! Their movie “Ride Along” set the box office record for the biggest weekend opening in January history, grossing over $41 million. Over the MLK holiday weekend, the film is projected to bring in  $47.8 million, which will break another record for biggest MLK weekend opening ever!

The action-comedy has also received an “A” rating from audiences via CinemaScore. Though the movie just opened, there’s already supposedly a sequel in the works, that will go into production possibly in a few months!

This isn’t the last of Kevin in movies. In fact, things are only heating up! His romantic comedy About Last Night will hit theatres February 14 and Think Like a Man Too will debut this summer. In the midst of all of this success, the comedian is still very humble. He recently told The Mercury:

I still don’t know if I made it. I think the minute I think about it, is the minute I’ll go crazy. I don’t like addressing it. This is all a dream to me. That’s why I don’t go to sleep. I’m afraid if I close my eyes, when I wake up, this (film career) will be over. So I just stay up all the time.”

Check out the Ride Along trailer below.

Kevin Hart and Ice Cube lead the lineup in Ride Along, the new film from the director and the producer of the blockbuster comedy Think Like a Man. When a fast-talking guy joins his girlfriend’s brother—a hot-tempered cop—to patrol the streets of Atlanta, he gets entangled in the officer’s latest case. Now, in order to prove that he deserves his future bride, he must survive the most insane 24 hours of his life.

For the past two years, high-school security guard Ben (Hart) has been trying to show decorated APD detective James (Cube) that he’s more than just a video-game junkie who’s unworthy of James’ sister, Angela (Tika Sumpter). When Ben finally gets accepted into the academy, he thinks he’s earned the seasoned policeman’s respect and asks for his blessing to marry Angela.

Knowing that a ride along will demonstrate if Ben has what it takes to take care of his sister, James invites him on a shift designed to scare the hell out of the trainee. But when the wild night leads them to the most notorious criminal in the city, James will find that his new partner’s rapid-fire mouth is just as dangerous as the bullets speeding at it.

John Leguizamo and Laurence Fishburne join the cast of the action-comedy directed by Tim Story. Ride Along is produced by Will Packer (Think Like a Man), alongside Ice Cube, Matt Alvarez (Barbershop) and Larry Brezner (Good Morning, Vietnam).
