Kevin Hart lost his Oscar's gig, but he gained the number-one movie in the country. The comedian's latest movie, The Upside, exceeded expectations for a $19.6 million debut weekend. The flick, also starring Bryan Cranston, is a remake of the 2010 French comedy The Intouchables.
That knocked Aquaman to second after three weeks atop the box-office list. The superhero flick, starring Jason Momoa, earned $17.3 million. Worldwide, Aquaman has made $1 billion, the first DC Extended Universe movie to do so.
A Dog's Way Home premiered in third with $11.3 million.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse climbed from fifth to fourth with $9 million.
Escape Room plunged from second to fifth with $8.9 million.
The critically panned Keanu Reeves sci-fi thriller Replicas crash-landed in 12th with $2.5 million -- giving it one of the worst performances for a movie opening in at least 2,000 theaters.
