January 20th, 2014 12:45pm EST

Ride Along Ice Cube and Kevin Hart's new comdey Ride Along has set a new record for the month of January at the box office.

The movie pulled in $41.2 million, making it the highest January opening ever; and "Ride Along" also passed J.J. Abrams 2008 sci-fi thriller Cloverfield as the top-grossing film over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

Mark Wahlberg's war picture Lone Survivor falls to second, adding $22 million to its four-week total of $79 million.

Animated feature The Nut Job premiered at number three, with a strong $20.5 million share of the weekend box office, while action flick Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit's $17.2 million debut at number-four is surely a disappointment for Paramount Pictures.

Rounding out the top-five is Disney's Frozen, which dropped three spots with $12 million. The film has been in the top-five for all nine weeks of its theatrical run.

American Hustle, horror debut Devil's Due, August: Osage County, The Wolf of Wall Street and Saving Mr. Banks round out the top 10.
