‘Ralph Breaks The Internet’ Tops The Box Office, ‘Creed II’ Debuts Strong

It was a big three-day weekend at the box office, as two new releases performed exceptionally well, if not quite as high as we predicted.

Ralph Breaks The Internet was the big winner this weekend, bringing in an estimated $56 million, with an eye on $85 million for the five day Thanksgiving long weekend in the United States. Reviews have been strong for the film, and it should have some legs as we head into December. Ralph Breaks The Internet should have no trouble hitting the $200 million mark in North America, and perform better than its 2012 predecessor.

Debuting in second place with $36 million over the three days was Creed II, which should nail $56 million when the five day weekend is tallied. This is a great showing for the film and the franchise, and its three-day numbers will be stronger than the original Creed‘s $29.6 million debut. Strong reviews and Michael B. Jordan’s star power should give this film some staying power.

As for the rest of the top five, Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindlewald dropped to third place with $29 million. Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch was right behind it in fourth place with $28.5 million, while Bohemian Rhapsody closed things out in fifth place with $13.3 million.

Robin Hood could only muster up an $8.6 million debut to land outside the top five.

So, to recap, here were 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

And here’s how the three-day weekend is estimated to turn out:

1) Ralph Breaks The Internet – $56 million
2) Creed II – $36 million
3) Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindlewald – $29 million
4) Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch – $28.5 million
5) Bohemian Rhapsody – $13.3 million
