We’re really not going to have to break our brains this weekend to determine what film is going to be on top of the box office. So, join us as we share our predictions for the American Thanksgiving weekend.
Ralph Breaks The Internet is the sequel to Disney’s 2012 hit film, Wreck-It Ralph, which made nearly $200 million when it was first released. The film has only grown in popularity over the ensuing years, and families will likely gravitate to the new film. While there is a glut of family offerings at the box office now, Ralph Breaks The Internet is going to have no problem grabbing the top spot at the box office with $65 million over the three-day weekend.
Also out this weekend is Creed II, a sequel the outstanding Ryan Coogler-directed, Michael B. Jordan-starring film from 2015. Though Coogler has vacated the director’s chair, Jordan is back, along with Sylvester Stallone and, from Rocky IV, Dolph Lundgren as Ivan Drago. The word is that this plays more like a sequel to that 1985 film which, judging by the current world climate, may definitely help bring in a big audience. Creed II has performed well with critics, and should be the choice for adults this weekend. Look for a second place debut with $43 million over the three-day weekend.
As for the rest of the top five, Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindlewald will fall to third place with $29 million. Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch will land in fourth place with $28 million. Finally, the new and reviled Robin Hood film, starring Jamie Foxx and Taron Egerton will close things out with $14 million over the three-day weekend.
So, to recap, here are our predictions:
1) Ralph Breaks The Internet – $65 million
2) Creed II – $43 million
3) Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindlewald – $29 million
4) Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch – $28 million
5) Robin Hood – $14 million
