PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Ride Along just keeps riding.

The box office leader of the previous two weekends, an action thriller with Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, made it three in a row on top, earning an estimated $12-million.

Second place belonged to the holdover animated musical, Frozen, which took in over $9-million.

That Awkward Moment, the new romantic comedy starring Zac Efron, was third.

It debuted with $9-million.

And another animated holdover, The Nut Job, finished fourth with $7-million.

The weekend’s other new attraction, Labor Day, the romantic drama with Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, took in only $5-million, good for seventh place.

Industry-wide totals, even lower than expected on the characteristically quiet Super Bowl weekend at multiplexes, were below those of the counterpart weekends the last two years.
