The film brought in $5.8 million this Friday — a 73% drop from its first in release on Black Friday last week. As of Saturday morning, Deadline is projecting the sequel to 2012's Wreck-It Ralph will bring in $25.1 million for the weekend, which is a drop of approximately 55%. As of Sunday Ralph Breaks the Internet will have brought in $118.6 million after 12 days in theaters. It is playing in 4,017 locations.
Although a second weekend drop is typical, Wreck-It Ralph 2's drop is a little larger than is typically desired. However, this is the third year in a row that Disney will have won the post-Thanksgiving box office. Moana and Coco were also released during the Thanksgiving period, and their second weekend box offices were similar. Moana scored $28.2 million, a 50% drop from it's first weekend, and Coco brought in $27.5 million, a 46% drop.
The Grinch is expected to take the number 2 spot this weekend with $16.8 million, a spot held last week by Creed II, which itself is expected to drop to third place with $16.4 million. By the end of the weekend, its fourth, The Grinch will have likely crossed $200 million at the box office. Although Creed II's overall box office position has dropped, it's actually ahead of the 12 day total for 2015's Creed by 25%. As of Sunday, Creed II will have earned around $80.7 million.
The one new wide release this weekend is The Possession of Hannah Grace, a low-budget horror movie. It is expected to fall in the top 10 with $6.1 million. While that number is low in comparison to other films, the movie was produced for only $6 million, so at its current rate it should make its money back.
Directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnson, Ralph Breaks the Internet features the voices of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Taraji P. Henson, Gal Gadot, Jane Lynch and Ed O’Neill.
