'Ralph Breaks the Internet' Tops Thanksgiving Box Office, 'Creed II' Scores, 'Robin Hood' Stumbles
Disney's "Ralph Breaks the Internet" dominated the Thanksgiving box office, generating a massive $84.6 million at 4,017 locations over the five-day holiday period and $56 million for the weekend. Propelled by solid word of mouth, the Disney animated sequel now ranks as the second-best Thanksgiving debut ever, behind another Disney title, "Frozen," which earned $93.6 million during its first five days. "Ralph Breaks the Internet" carries a hefty $175 million production budget, so it will need to keep up momentum worldwide to turn a profit. "Ralph Breaks the Internet" sees John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman reprise their roles from "Wreck It Ralph" as the video game villain and his best friend navigate the internet. The original film picked up $49 million over its first three days of release.
