Thanksgiving weekend got one heck of a shake up this week with the premieres of Ralph Breaks the Internet and Creed 2. Both films performed pretty fantastically in their first five days with each debuting at the #1 and #2 spots. Ralph was able to take in $84 million over its first five days and over $300 million Worldwide. Sequel anyone? Creed on the other hand was working on a $55 million budget and earned it back quickly. It also marked the biggest opening for a live-action movie over the Thanksgiving weekend, ever.
Not everyone had their kind of luck though, as the newest Robin Hood film premiered in 7th place with $9 million. Looks like we won’t be making this one a franchise. Green Book also had it’s premiere, and while it had great reviews, was only able to pull in $5.4 million and land in 9th place. The rest of of the Top Ten is below.
