The Idaho Statesman - - Stay Connected -

Kevin Hart isn’t host­ing the Os­cars, but he’s got a num­ber one movie.

Hart’s “The Up­side” sur­passed ex­pec­ta­tions to open with $19.6 mil­lion in ticket sales ac­cord­ing to stu­dio es­ti­mates Sun­day.

The strong per­for­mance of “The Up­side” pushed “Aqua­man” to sec­ond after the aquatic su­per­hero’s three-week reign on top of the North Amer­i­can box of­fice.

Over the week­end, “Aqua­man” passed $1 bil­lion world­wide.

Open­ing in third place was the ca­nine ad­ven­ture “A Dog’s Way Home” with $11.3 mil­lion.

Early Jan­uary is of­ten a dump­ing ground in movie the­aters and the week­end fea­tured a num­ber of duds.

Keanu Reeves’ sci-fi thriller “Repli­cas” de­buted with just $2.5 mil­lion.
