“Ralph” Beats Estimates, “Favorite” A Smash

Ralph Beats Estimates Favorite A Smash

Final Thanksgiving box-office estimates are in with “Ralph Breaks The Internet” snagging $84.5 million in its domestic debut across the five day holiday and with $55.67 million for the traditional three-day weekend. Combined with a limited international release, the film has racked up $126 million globally so far.

“Creed II” also knocked out its predecessor, the sequel snagging $55.8 million for the five day holiday weekend and $35.29 million from Friday to Sunday – the five day easily ahead of the $42.1 million the first one scored in the same time frame. “The Grinch” and “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” are neck-and-neck for third and fourth with $42 million each. “Robin Hood” was a dud, the film coming in seventh with a five-day haul of $14.2 million.

Fox Searchlight’s “The Favourite” opened in four cinemas in New York and Los Angeles and generated a hefty $420,000 – snagging a $105,500 per screen average which marks the biggest screen average for a film since “Call Me By Your Name” (with $103,233) late last year. The studio plans to expand the film next weekend to around 30 locations in seven markets before a wide opening on December 14th.

On the global front and with the help of a phenomenal result in China so far, the “Venom” film has crossed $800 million worldwide and with its current total at $822.5 million – it now stands as the second highest grossing superhero origin movie ever globally, just passing “Wonder Woman” and now sitting behind only “Black Panther”.
