Weekend Box Office: Ralphs Breaks the Internet Edges Out The Grinch with $16.1 Million

The box office remained largely unchanged since last weekend, since there were no new movies in wide release. So, for the third weekend in a row, Ralph Breaks the Internet topped the box office ($16.1 million) bringing it's domestic total to $140.9 million. It also has an early worldwide total of $258.2 million.

In second place, The Grinch, is holding really well (because Holidays) with $15.2 million. It has grossed $223.5 million domestically, so far, and $322.4 million worldwide.

In other news, Aquaman debuted in China to the tune of $93.6 million. That is the biggest debut for any DCU movie in China. Aquaman opens domestically on December 21.

Ralph Breaks the Internet Remains On Top with $25.8 million

The box office remained largely unchanged (albeit one newcomer) this post Thanksgiving weekend as Ralph Breaks the Internet easily remained at the top spot with $25.8 million. It, so far, has grossed $119.3 million domestically and has an early worldwide total of $207 million.

Since much of the box office remained unchanged, the only movie to really note here is Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, as it continued to slip with a 4th place finish ($11.2 million) for a total of $134.3 million... this is way behind the $183.1 million the first film made by this time frame.  The silver-lining for this film (if there is one) is that it's already made $385.3 million overseas for a worldwide total of $519.6 million.

Ralph Breaks the Box Office with $55.7 million Debut

Well, the box office is actually fine, and not broken... but Ralph Breaks the Internet easily took the top spot this weekend ($55.7 million), making $84.5 million over the entire Thanksgiving weekend.

Creed II came in second with $35.3 million... this surpasses the original Creed's $29.6 million when it debuted in 2015.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald slipped to 4th ($29.7 million) behind The Grinch ($30.2 million). And newcomer, Robin Hood (reportedly cost around $100 million to make) will likely end up as a flop as it came in 7th with $9.1 million.

Fantastic Beasts 2 Spells Up $62.2 million at the Box Office

The latest installment of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, The Crimes of Grindelwald easily topped the box office this weekend ($62.2 million).  It's a bit under the $74.4 million of the first film which debuted two years ago.

The other newcomers, Instant Family ($14.7 million) and Widows ($12.3 million) debuted in 4th and 5th place.

Meanwhile, The Grinch ($38.2 million) and Bohemian Rhapsody ($15.7 million) continues to hold pretty well in their 2nd and 3rd place finish. While The Grinch is getting a slow roll out overseas, Bohemian Rhapsody has already made $256.4 million for a worldwide total of $384.3 million.

In other news, Venom continues to dominate ($51.2 million) in China as it even bested Fantastic Beasts 2's $47.5 bow.   Venom has grossed $207.1 million in China and looks to surpass the domestic counterpart.  It's worldwide total stands at $780.5 million, which puts it right ahead of Deadpool 2's $734.2 million for 2018.
