The latest Disney movie had plenty of hype and hence opens at the top of the US box office with a $55 million 3 day weekend and an $85 million 5 day weekend which includes the Wednesday and Thursday of Thanksgiving
This means that the new Ralph film is running $15 million ahead of its 2012 predecessor over the same period and should end up grossing far more in the long run.
The follow up to Creed from 2015 and spiritual follow up to Rocky IV from 1986 the Micheal B. Jordan starring movie opens at number 2 with a $35 million opening 3 days and a $55 million 5 day Thanksgiving.
This is far higher than the original movies opening by $14 million.
The Grinch drops to number 3 this week after 3 weeks of release with a $30 million weekend gross, the film now has a total US gross of $180.5 million.
After opening big last weekend the new Fantastic Beasts film runs into trouble this week and falls hard to number 4 with a weekend gross of just $29.6 million which brings the films 10 gross to a relatively poor $117 million.
One film which has done better than expected and this week sits at number 5 is the Queen bio-pic which this week takes $13 million for a $152 million total US gross.
One film that has not done too well on its debut weekend is the new Robin Hood movie starring Taron Egerton which limps onto the box office chart at number 7 with a poor $9.1 million gross.
