HOLLYWOOD—It was indeed a slow weekend at the box-office compared to last week. However, last week’s champion, “Ralph Breaks the Internet” managed to maintain its grip on the box-office by adding another $25.8 million. Since its release on November 21, the animated sequel has earned over $120 million at the domestic box-office.
Nabbing second place was another animated flick, “The Grinch” with $17.7 million, and the film has already crossed the $200 million mark at the domestic box-office. “Creed II” dropped to third place at the box-office earning $16.8 million. The boxing sequel has since amounted over $80 million at the domestic box-office. Dropping to fourth place was “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” with $11.2 million. The sequel is not as big as its predecessor, and is not likely to top out the domestic gross of its predecessor.
Rounding out the top five was “Bohemian Rhapsody” with $8.1 million bringing its domestic tally just under $165 million. The only new release of the week, the supernatural thriller “The Possession of Hannah Grace” did not scare audiences with a tepid $6.5 million to land in seventh place.
This weekend sees the release of two dramas vying for awards contention in “Mary Queen of Scots” starring Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan, as well as “Ben is Back” starring Oscar Winner Julia Roberts. “Ralph Breaks the Internet” might win for a third consecutive weekend.
