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.”
