LOS ANGELES, CA - JANUARY 14:  Ice Cube speaks onstage during the 16th annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards at the Hollywood Palladium on January 14, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

Tim Story is directing the action comedy, which also stars John Leguizamo, Tika Sumpter, Bryan Callen and Jay Pharoah.

Universal's action comedy Ride Along -- headlining Ice Cube and Kevin Hart -- will open in theaters on Jan. 17, 2004.

So far, the movie has the Martin Luther King holiday weekend to itself.

A sort of comedic Training Day, the story centers on a risk-averse second-grade teacher plans on marrying the girl of his dreams but first must accompany his overprotective future brother-in-law, a tough cop, on a ride-along from hell.
