'I, Frankenstein' stumbles as 'Ride Along' rolls to victory

"I, Frankenstein," the only new wide-release movie in theaters over the weekend, posted less-than-monstrous results that failed to instill any fear in holdovers "Ride Along" and "Lone Survivor."  The 3D horror-action hybrid, starring a muscular Aaron Eckhart as Victor Frankenstein's monster, grossed an estimated $8.3 million in ticket sales in the U.S. and Canada, coming in below expectations for a sixth-place finish. Distributed by Lionsgate and produced by Lakeshore Entertainment and Hopscotch Features, the re-imagining of Mary Shelley's 19th-century novel cost about $65 million to make.    PHOTOS: Biggest Box Office Flops...
