Ralph breaks Internet and Creed 2 devour the Thanksgiving box office

adminNovember 26, 2018

Michael B. Jordan is an official A-List, while "Robin Hood" must cope with the cold and lumpy leftovers.

Sequels led the holiday weekend with "Ralph Breaks the Internet" and "Creed 2". Generally, one of the most lucrative periods of the film calendar, this year's attendance was the best since 2013. There is evidence that the sequels can not explode (see: remake "A Star Is Born" and "Bohemian Rhapsody"), but in the periods of greater hearing, the games are safe.

Of course, "insurance" does not always mean insurance. The second weekend of "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald" is falling short of national results, and while the new "Robin Hood" was aimed at a broader, younger and more diverse crowd, its target audience He showed little interest.

REAL MEETING - In "Ralph breaks the Internet"

In tight terms, "Ralph Breaks the Internet" was equal to the opening in early November 2012 of "Wreck-It Ralph". This animated release of Disney (unlike Pixar) grew on a date when the studio tries to claim most of the years. results comparable to "Coco" or "Moana". Unlike the predecessors, "Ralph" does not seem to be an important candidate for the awards; it is more in line with the fun-driven movies with which Universal and 20th Century Fox thrive, reflecting Disney's refinement to reflect the changing tastes of the audience.

"Creed II"

Meanwhile, "Creed II" almost doubled the opening of Thanksgiving 2016 of the restart. His five-day total of $ 56 million is among the best starters of the date. That jump suggests that Michael B. Jordan has secured a position as a top draw. It is likely to end up being bigger than national, but a clear success for MGM and for all involved.

The remakes of Robin Hood seem to be a 10-year element, but the most recent departure (starring Taron Edgerton as the titular hero, along with Jamie Foxx and Ben Mendelsohn) could end that trend at last. With a production cost of $ 100 million, he earned less than $ 14 million in five days and will be lucky to reach $ 25 million nationwide. However, Lionsgate will escape catastrophic losses, as they sell anticipated foreign rights that cover the majority of their budget.

"Bohemian Rhapsody" fell by only 14 percent, increasing its average per theater. Its success has exceeded all expectations, with a real possibility of reaching $ 175 million. Somewhere, Bryan Singer is smiling.

"Instant Family" is still a disappointment compared to Mark Wahlberg's previous comedies. It also fell by 14 percent, but it started at such a modest level that it will be lucky if it reaches $ 50 million.

The much discussed "Widows" did not get good results: with a 36 percent drop and a total of $ 8 million, it only reached eighth place. The first production of Steve McQueen to aspire to a wider audience will struggle to reach $ 40 million, making this film well reviewed a disappointment.

The "Green Paper" went ahead with its questionable and rapid expansion of more than 1,000 theaters to results that are a bit more promising than its unstable debut. (More details in our specialized box office report.)
