‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ repeats at No. 1, while ‘Creed 2’ slips to third at box office

NEW YORK – Thanksgiving leftovers have led the box office, with Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet” grossing $25.8 million to repeat as the No. 1 film in U.S. and Canadian theaters.

The “Wreck-It Ralph” sequel dropped steeply after nearly setting a Thanksgiving record last weekend. But with only one new film in wide release, nothing came close to “Ralph Breaks the Internet” in the typically quiet post-Thanksgiving weekend.

Still going strong in its fourth week of release, “The Grinch” came in second with $17.7 million in ticket sales. The Dr. Seuss movie, with Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of the Grinch, edged in front of last week’s No. 2 film, the “Rocky” sequel “Creed II.” The boxing drama took in $16.8 million, bringing its cumulative total to $81.2 million.

The horror film “The Possession of Hannah Grace” opened modestly with $6.5 million.

Rounding out the top five: New “Fantastic Beasts” movie “The Crimes of Grindelwald,” the “Harry Potter” prequel starring Eddie Redmayne and Johnny Depp, finished fourth with $11.2 million in the film’s third weekend. Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” with Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, held at No. 5 in its fifth weekend with $8.1 million.

Final figures are expected Monday.
