‘Possession of Hannah Grace’ Doesn’t Scare Off ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ on Slow Box Office
“Ralph Breaks the Internet” is unchallenged on its second week on Box Office. The Disney animated movie repeats victory on sleepy post-Thanksgiving weekend with an estimated $25.8 million, despite dropping 54.2% in ticket sales.
The “Wreck-It Ralph” sequel has accumulated a domestic gross of $119.3 million so far. With additional $33.7 million from international markets, the movie has brought in a worldwide total of $207 million, making it Disney’s biggest-grossing non-Pixar animated sequel domestically and overseas.
“Ralph Breaks the Internet” faced no competition from newcomers since the only new major release this week, “The Possession of Hannah Grace“, struggled to scare off holdovers in the top five. The R-rated horror thriller starring Shay Mitchell lands at No. 7 with approximately $6.5 million. With additional $4.1 million from outside North America, the opening gross has covered its reported $10 million budget.
The supernatural movie follows a morgue worker (Mitchell) who experiences horrifying visions after a disfigured cadaver, which has been possessed by a demon, arrives. It received generally negative reviews from critics and a C- CinemaScore.
“The Grinch” remained strong in its fourth week, up to No. 2 after being pushed to No. 3 last week. It added an estimated $17.7 million, bringing its domestic gross to cross the $200 million mark. It defeats last week’s runner-up “Creed” II“, which now places third with an estimated $16.8 million.
“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” are not moved on No. 4 and 5 respectively. The fantasy movie starring Eddie Redmayne added an estimated $11.2 million on its third weekend, while the biopic about Queen‘s vocalist Freddie Mercury brought in an estimated addition of $8.1 million.
Commenting on the overall box office results, Paul Dergarabedian, a senior media analyst with Comscore, says, “Typically the post-Thanksgiving weekend is a snooze-fest in theaters. While this year was comparatively quiet, it still had the advantage of a strong slate of very popular holdovers, plus the continually expanding roster of awards season films.”
