    Hey guys,

    I decided to open a new box office thread, as the old one hasn't been updated in months.

    US Box Office 30 Nov & 1 Dec 2018

    'Ralph' and 'Creed' Set to Repeat atop Post-Thanksgiving Weekend Box Office

    FRIDAY AM UPDATE (30 Nov 2018): Sony and Screen Gems's R-rated horror thriller The Possession of Hannah Grace took in $625,000 from Thursday night previews starting at 7PM in 1,866 locations. The performance is much higher than pre-weekend comp Incarnate, which brought in $125k from previews ahead of a $2.5 million opening. It's also more than double the $300k from previews Unsane brought in ahead of a $3.7 million debut.

    We'll take a closer look at things tomorrow morning once Friday estimates come in. For now you can check out our weekend preview below.

    WEEKEND PREVIEW: Following last weekend's monster performance, led by Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet and MGM's Creed II, this weekend sees just one new wide release in Screen Gems's latest horror The Possession of Hannah Grace, which means the story will remain with last weekend's top titles as 2018 continues its torrid pace.

    After delivering the second largest five-day Thanksgiving weekend opening ever, Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet is looking at a second weekend at #1 and a domestic gross that should finish at or near $120 million come end of day Sunday. Right now we're expecting a second weekend drop right around -54% for a sophomore frame totaling $26 million.

    MGM's Creed II could face some competition for second in Universal and Illumination's The Grinch, but we're expecting it to edge out the animated title with a drop right around -50% for an $18 million second weekend and a domestic cume right around $82 million come the end of the weekend. Truth of the matter is, this is a tough one to forecast. Creed II's debut was the largest Thanksgiving weekend opening ever for a live action title, topping the first film's five day performance by ~$14 million. To that point, Creed dropped -49% in its second weekend, but it played better throughout the week compared to its sequel, though that could also be attributed to a weaker crowd of competing titles back in November 2015.

    As for The Grinch, we're looking for a -43% drop and $17.3 million this weekend after it held on quite well last weekend in the face of Ralph's debut. Should our forecast hold, the film will top $200 million domestically by the end of the weekend, moving into the top ten for the year.

    Continuing down the line, WB's Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald should land in fourth place with $15 million or so for a domestic cume around $138 million by the end of the weekend. Of course, this means it remains well behind the first film, which topped $183 million by the end of its third Sunday in release.

    Rounding out the top five is Fox's Bohemian Rhapsody, which featured the best hold among holdovers in the top ten last weekend* when it dropped just -12.7%. This weekend we're looking for a drop around -45% and a fifth weekend performance right around $7.75 million, which would push the film's domestic gross over $163 million should our forecast hold.

    Outside the top five is where we find Screen Gems's release of The Possession of Hannah Grace. The R-rated film is set to debut in 2,065 theater with the studio anticipating a three-day performance around $3 million comparing to films such as Incarnate ($2.5m opening), The Green Inferno ($3.5m opening) and Unfriended: Dark Web ($3.6m opening).

    To that point, IMDb page view data shows Hannah Grace pacing a bit ahead of Unsane ($3.76m opening) over the two weeks leading up to release as well as ahead of Sony's comp to Incarnate. However, the same data shows the film pacing well behind Fox's Morgan, which opened with a dismal $2 million back in 2016. All told, we're looking at a debut that could come short of the studio's expectations, coming in around $2.8 million, battling it out for the ninth and tenth spot for the weekend, leading to a short-lived theatrical run.

    In limited release, Warner Bros. will debut Head Full of Honey in four locations; IFC will release DriverX into two theaters; and Orion will open Anna and the Apocalypse in five theaters.

    Meanwhile, Fox Searchlight will expand the release of Yorgos Lanthimos's The Favourite after its chart-topping $105,603 per theater average last weekend from just four theaters. This weekend the film expands into seven additional markets — San Francisco, Dallas, Austin, Washington DC, Boston, Chicago, and Phoenix — playing in a total of 34 locations.

    This weekend's forecast is directly below. This post will be updated on Friday morning with Thursday night preview results followed by Friday estimates on Saturday morning, and a complete weekend recap on Sunday morning.

    Ralph Breaks the Internet (4,017 theaters) - $25.9 M
    Creed II (3,576 theaters) - $18.1 M
    Dr. Seuss' The Grinch (3,793 theaters) - $17.3 M
    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (3,929 theaters) - $15.6 M
    Bohemian Rhapsody (3,007 theaters) - $7.7 M
    Instant Family (3,110 theaters) - $6.5 M
    Robin Hood (2,827 theaters) - $4.3 M
    Widows (2,393 theaters) - $4.2 M
    Green Book (1,065 theaters) - $2.8 M
    The Possession of Hannah Grace (2,065 theaters) - $2.8 M

    SATURDAY AM UPDATE (1 Dec 2018): In terms of the weekend's holdovers, things are playing out mostly as expected with Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet set to repeat at #1 after a $5.74 million Friday and Creed II right behind it with an estimated $4.95 million on Friday. Ralph will separate itself from the pack over the weekend as families head to theaters, eventually giving the animated feature a three-day around $25-26 million.

    As for Sony's release of the R-rated Screen Gems horror The Possession of Hannah Grace, it's performing much better than Mojo's forecast, pulling in an estimated $2.56 million on Friday, which nearly matches our entire weekend forecast. The film is expected to pull in $6.4 million for the weekend and it received a "C-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences.

    International Box Office 30 Nov 2018

    International box office crown up for grabs as 'Grindelwald' faces challengers

    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald has ruled global and international box office for the past two weekends and will struggle to retain its crown as Ralph Breaks The Internet and The Grinch flex their claws.

    The Grindelwald fantasy saga stands at $343.8m through Warner Bros Pictures International and $465.6m worldwide. It should cross $500m this weekend but may drop down in the pecking order.

    The Harry Potter spin-off may even get a surprise from stablemate Crazy Rich Asians, which faces a big test this weekend when it debuts in China. The rom-com has been a huge hit in North America and done well internationally on $62.8m. China is the opportunity to push it past the $100m and register as a true global sensation.

    Creed II starring Michael B. Jordan ventures into the UK and Australia this weekend through Warner Bros Pictures International and has grossed an early $1.7m. Executives are hopeful of another impressive UK debut after the original opened on $3.3m in January 2016 on the way to an $8.2m final gross. Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born stands at $165.1m.

    Ralph Breaks The Internet shot out of the gate last weekend in its first 18 territories through Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International and stands at $51.7m. The animation enters its second weekend in China, where it opened strongly, and debuts in the UK, Portugal, Taiwan, Thailand and South Africa, among others.

    This will be a big session for the animated sequel if it is to overtake Grindelwald and claim the box office crown. The UK in particular is expected to deliver the goods. The original debuted there on $7.2m in February 2013 en route to a $36.2m final tally.

    Disney’s fantasy tale Nutcracker And The Four Realms stands at $81.5m through Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International heading into France, Hong Kong and Japan this weekend.

    Universal Pictures International executives report that The Grinch has reached $38.3m and the children’s release is expected to make some noise this weekend when it expands into a further 21 territories. Debut highlights are expected in Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, and Singapore.

    Johnny English Strikes Again – the best international performer of the comedy franchise starring Rowan Atkinson – stands at $142.4m.

    Damien Chazelle’s Space Race drama First Man starring Ryan Gosling has grossed $54.5m and opens across parts of Latin American including Argentina. The House With A Clock In Its Walls $25.9m from Universal territories and debuts in Malaysia.

    Fox International is rolling out Steve McQueen’s heist drama Widows on $13.8m in a further 17 territories, among them Mexico, Brazil, France, Spain, Switzerland and Belgium. Bohemian Rhapsody has reached $329.8m.

    Sony Pictures Releasing International executives report that Venom has amassed $617.8m, of which $250.2m comes from China, while the latest Lisbeth Salander adventure The Girl In The Spider’s Web opens in South Korea and has grossed a meagre $17.6m.

    Horror film The Possession Of Hannah Grace debuts in the UK, Mexico, Brazil, and Spain day-and-date with the North American launch through Screen Gems.

    Second World War horror film Overlord produced by J.J. Abrams has generated $18m through Paramount Pictures International.

    With a production budget of $43 million, that movie has only grossed $31 million so far ($14 mio in the US and $17 mio in the rest of the world). For 'The Crown' star Claire Foy, it's the second consecutive movie that has underperformed, the first one being 'First Man' which had a budget of $59 million and only grossed $44 million in the US (though it was 'saved' by international grosses of $54 mio, briniging the movie's total to $98 mio).

    I'm sure that 'Hannah Grace' will do well, also internationally. It has a production budget of only $9.5 mio. The ex-'Pretty Little Liars' stars have a huge fanbase. Shay Mitchell's ex co-star Lucy Hale's 'Truth or Dare' was very profitable earlier this year, grossing $95 mio worldwide, with a production budget of only $3.5 mio.

    US Box Office News - Weekend Nov 30 - Dec 2

    'Ralph Breaks the Internet' remains #1 with $26 Million Post-Thanksgiving Performance

    Outside of only a couple differences, this weekend's box office top ten almost mirrors last weekend's rankings exactly with Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet securing the #1 spot for a second weekend in a row. Among the differences, Universal's The Grinch switched places with Creed II as the animated feature took the runner-up position while topping $200 million domestically. In the bottom half of the top ten Sony's release of the Screen Gems horror film The Possession of Hannah Grace outperformed expectations and earned a seventh place finish.

    There was no change at the top of the box office, however, as Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet is once again the #1 film in North America, delivering an estimated three-day totaling $25.75 million. From a domestic perspective, the film's performance almost matches that of Moana's dollar-for-dollar after 12 days in release with a domestic total just shy of $120 million.

    Landing in second place is Universal and Illumination's The Grinch, which brought in an estimated $17.7 million for a domestic cume that now totals $203.5 million. For Illumination, this is now the studio's eighth film out of nine releases to top $200 million and with Christmas still 23 days away there is yet a lot of time for this one to rake in additional grosses.

    MGM's Creed II dropped -53% in its second weekend for an estimated $16.8 million and a twelve day gross that now totals over $81 million. The drop is just a couple percentage points below the first film (which is to be expected given the sheer size of the sequel's five-day debut last weekend), while the twelve day total remains ~$17 million ahead of where the first film was at the same point in release.

    In fourth we find WB's Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, which kicked off its third week in release with an estimated $11.2 million and a domestic cume that is now just shy of $135 million. While the film's domestic performance is a bit of a downer, it has now topped the global box office for three straight weekends as it added another $40.2 million internationally this weekend for an overseas running cume that is now $385.3 million for a global haul just shy of $520 million. Overall, the performance is going to be a far cry from the first film which delivered nearly $235 million domestically and $814 million worldwide, which will make WB's future moves concerning the franchise something to keep an eye.

    Rounding out the top five is Fox's Bohemian Rhapsody, which brought in an estimated $8.1 million as it kicks off its fifth week in release with a domestic total that is now just shy of $165 million. The film is rocking audiences internationally as well, adding an additional $37 million this weekend from 72 markets for an overseas total that now tops $375 million and a global cume just shy of $539 million.

    Outside the top five, in seventh position is Sony's release of Screen Gems's R-rated horror The Possession of Hannah Grace. Heading into the weekend expectations weren't that high, but the film managed a $6.5 million opening from 2,065 locations. The film received a "C-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, playing to a crowd that was 51% female and 50% of which were aged 25 years or older.

    The best hold in the top ten goes to Universal's Green Book, which didn't have the breakout last weekend the studio might have hoped for, but with a -29% drop this weekend and a further expansion planned for next weekend it might still have some life. The film took advantage of its National Board of Review award win for Best Film this past week to bring in an estimated $3.9 million for the weekend as its domestic total has now topped $14 million.

    With a budget of $100 mio, this one has flopped in the US, where it grossed only $21.7 mio within 2 weeks (dropping 48.9% from the first to the second week). Let's see if the rest of the world can save it.

    I think Robin Hood will flop in the UK too in all honesty.

    China box office: 'A Cool Fish' top again, 'Crazy Rich Asians' underwhelms

    Surprise local hit A Cool Fish continued to swim at the top of the Chinese box office as new releases failed to make splash in the week of Nov 26-Dec 2, which also saw ticket sales down by 23% week-on-week.

    The top five remained almost unchanged from the week before, with A Cool Fish staying top for two weeks straight. Thanks to good word of mouth, the dark comedy continued its strong run with $39.5m, bringing its 17-day total to $88.9m and making it the 13th biggest local film of 2018.

    The Insanity director Rao Xiaozhi’s second film is a low budget dark comedy involving a robber, a security guard, a disabled woman and a group of nobodies whose lives intersect because of a missing gun and a heist.

    Sony’s Venom maintained in second with $19.3m for $258.9m after 24 days. It is currently the fifth biggest foreign film of all time and the 15th biggest film overall, surpassing Kung Fu Yoga.

    Disney animation Ralph Breaks The Internet remained in third with $14.4m for $33.7m after 10 days. It has out-grossed 2016’s Moana, Disney’s last animation released in China.

    Rowan Atkinson-starrer Johnny English Strikes Again overtook Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald for fourth place with $9.6m for $21m after 10 days, while the latter dropped to fifth with $4.2m for $55.8m after 17 days.

    With the holdovers occupying the top five, Amitabh Bachchan-starrer 102 Not Out came in sixth as the best performing new release, taking $3.2m from its first three days. As the eighth Indian film on release in China this year, its opening weekend only fared better than Sultan.

    The rest of the chart is Mel Gibson-starrer Blood Father on $1.6m from its first three days; all Asian-cast Hollywood blockbuster Crazy Rich Asians on an underwhelming $1.1m from its first three days; Chinese Peacekeeping Forces on $0.7m for $2.2m after 10 days; and local documentary Hello Life on $0.4m for $0.5m after six days.

    Hollywood is set to storm the Chinese box office with Aquaman opening on Dec 7.

    UK Box Office

    'Ralph Breaks The Internet' tops UK box office ahead of 'Creed II'

    The Top 5
    Rank Film (Distributor) Three-day gross (Nov 30-Dec 2) Total gross to date Week
    1 Ralph Breaks The Internet (Disney) £4m £4m 1
    2 Creed II (Warner Bros) £3m £3m 1
    3 Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald (Warner Bros) £2.7m £26.7m 3
    4 The Grinch (Universal) £2.3m £17m 4
    5 Bohemian Rhapsody (20th Century Fox) £1.5m £42m 6

    Disney

    Disney’s animated title Ralph Breaks The Internet has opened top of the UK box office, ending the two-week run of Warner Bros’ Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald.

    Produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios, the computer-animated feature started with £4.03m from 613 sites for an average of £6,566. This is a decent return for Disney in the competitive Christmas market, although down on the first title’s £4.5m opening on 501 sites (£9,035 average) in February 2013, and not on the scale of the sequel’s huge $56m US bow. Wreck-It Ralph went on to take £23.8m in the UK.

    Ralph Breaks The Internet is ahead of the last feature from Walt Disney Animation Studios, 2016’s Moana, which opened with £2.2m and a £4,018 average from 556 UK sites in 2016.

    On its fifth weekend, The Nutcracker And The Four Realms took £200,000 for a £5.1m cume, and will look to pick up further Christmas audiences in the coming weeks.

    Warner Bros

    Boxing sequel Creed II starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone kicked off with a strong £2.95m from 531 sites, for a £5,555 average.

    This is ahead of the 2016 original, which started on 482 sites with £2.22m for a £4,619 average. The strong numbers show how the Creed films have breathed new life into the Rocky franchise that Stallone has been part of since the first film in 1976. Creed II is the eighth title in the series.

    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald dropped to third spot in its third week, taking £2.69m for a £26.7m cume. This is a 52% drop on its second weekend, with the film now facing an uphill battle to get near the first title’s £54.7m UK total in 2016.

    A Star Is Born continues to bring in audiences with £216,000 for a £28.59m total, while Smallfoot took £25,000 for a £10.97m to date.

    Universal

    Faced with competition from Ralph Breaks The Internet, Universal’s The Grinch held well in its fourth weekend, dropping 30% for £2.3m and a £16.96m total to date. It has now passed the £15.2m total of Ron Howard’s 2000 live-action title of the same name, although this is not adjusted for inflation.

    Universal holdovers nearing the end of their run include Johnny English Strikes Again, which added £25,699 for £17.6m total; First Man, with £6,410 for £7.88m so far; and Halloween, which put on £5,757 for £8.94m to date.

    Twentieth Century Fox

    Rock biopic Bohemian Rhapsody stayed in the top five in its sixth week, dropping just 31% to take £1.53m across the weekend. It is now up to £42m in the UK, making it the seventh highest-grossing title in the territory this year at the time of writing.

    Steve McQueen’s Widows added £221,235 on its fourth weekend, and is now on £5.79m.

    Sony

    Supernatural horror The Possession Of Hannah Grace starring Shay Mitchell opened to £112,000 from 154 sites, a £727 average.

    The Girl In The Spider’s Web, led by The Crown star Claire Foy, suffered an 80% drop on its second weekend, with £76,000 over the three days. It is now up to £928,000.

    Lionsgate

    On its second weekend, action picture Robin Hood starring Taron Egerton dropped 62%, taking £383,704 for a £2.23m total to date.

    'Aquaman' sets Warner Bros opening day record in China

    Aquaman has made a big splash in China and set a Warner Bros opening day record on Friday of an estimated $24.6m (RMB 169.5m).

    Warner Bros Pictures International (WBPI) executives said Aquaman’s online profile was “extremely high” in China, with a Maoyan score of 9.5, Taopiaopaio on 9.4, and Douban on 8.4. The film debuts in North America on December 21.

    In other good news for WBPI, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald has crossed $400m to reach $402.8m. The Harry Potter spin-off was the top international film last weekend and will most likely surrender the crown to stablemate Aquaman.

    Elsewhere, A Star Is Born has reached $170.6m in the week when it received five Golden Globe nominations, while Creed II stands at an early $15.3m, and Crazy Rich Asians, which landed two Globes nods, $64.4m.

    Ralph Breaks The Internet, nominated for a Golden Globe on Thursday, was last weekend’s global box office champion and has amassed $97m via Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International and arrives in Spain, Bolivia and Paraguay this weekend. Meanwhile Disney’s live-action fantasy The Nutcracker And The Four Realms starring Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, Mackenzie Foy, Eugenio Derberz, and Golden Globe nominee Richard E. Grant (for Can You Ever Forgive Me?), stands at $89.8m and opens this weekend in South Korea and Russia.

    Bohemian Rhapsody earned a couple of Golden Globe nominations this week – for dramatic film and dramatic actor Rami Malek – and Fox International executives will look for more good news this week as the Freddie Mercury drama approaches the $400m mark.

    Currently on $385m, the feature scored a superb $6.3m debut in Italy last week and will need to deliver solid holds there and in its other markets to secure the milestone this weekend.

    Can You Ever Forgive Me? is emerging as a heavyweight awards contender and landed Globes nods this week for its stars Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant. The drama opens up in Australia and New Zealand. Steve McQueen’s heist drama Widows was overlooked by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and has generated $21.5m ahead of a weekend session that brings debuts in Germany, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Vietnam.

    Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek drama The Old Man & The Gun opens in the UK, while crime drama The Hate U Give starring Amandla Stenberg has grossed $2.5m and ventures into Brazil.

    This is a significant weekend for the fantasy adventure Mortal Engines produced by Peter Jackson. Universal Pictures International has orchestrated a coordinated roll-out in 42 territories ahead of next week’s North America debut, among them Australia and New Zealand, Russia, South Korea, Indonesia, India, Portugal, Poland, Taiwan, Thailand, Philippines, and Singapore.

    Family release The Grinch stands at $71.1m and opens in Mexico and South Africa. Satirical romp Sorry To Bother You starring Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson and Armie Hammer debuts in the UK, while the cowboy drama Brokeback Mountain starring Jake Gyllenhaal and the late Heath Ledger gets a re-release in South Korea. Johnny English Strikes Again starring Rowan Atkinson has reached $151.2m to consolidate its status as the highest international performer in the comedy franchise. First Man earned a Golden Globe nod for supporting actress Claire Foy and has grossed $55.4m.

    Paramount Pictures International chiefs have provided latest updates on their active releases. The Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne comedy Instant Family stands at $4.5m, and Second World War horror film Overlord produced by J.J. Abrams stands at $18.9m.

    'Ralph' Reigns Over Slow Weekend at the Box Office While 'Aquaman' Dominates in China Debut

    The domestic weekend was, for the most part, as light as was expected. While it wasn't the lowest grossing weekend of the year so far, it was the second lowest with the top twelve delivering a combined $77.8 million. This is all in advance of what should be a profitable holiday season to come and we got a hint as to just how profitable it could be with the launch of WB's Aquaman in China this weekend where the film delivered a massive $93.6 million, becoming the #1 film globally from one market alone.

    Beginning with the domestic box office, while it looked like it might be neck-and-neck between Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet and Universal and Illumination's The Grinch at the top of the box office following Friday's estimates, Ralph carried the weekend as expected, though The Grinch wasn't far behind.

    Ralph brought in an estimated $16.1 million for the weekend, pushing its domestic cume just over $140 million. Meanwhile, The Grinch had the second smallest drop in the top ten, dipping just -15% compared to last weekend for a $15.17 million three day and a domestic cume approaching $225 million as the holiday themed animated feature is taking full advantage of the season.

    Internationally, Ralph added $18 million for a worldwide cume that currently totals $258.2 million. This weekend the film debuted in Spain with an estimated $4.6 million while China remains the feature's top market with $38.5 million so far.

    As for The Grinch, it added nine markets this weekend including Mexico where it debuted with an estimated $5.2 million. Overall, the film brought in $25.9 million from overseas markets this weekend for an international cume totaling $98.9 million and a global tally reaching $322.4 million.

    In third, MGM's Creed II brought in an estimated $10.3 million for a domestic cume that now stands at $96.5 million. Internationally, the film added an estimated $5.2 million from 31 overseas markets, bringing the overseas running cume to $23.2m million. The film's top market remains the UK with $8.9 million.

    WB's Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald dipped -40% for an estimated $6.8 million weekend for a domestic cume that now stands at $145.2 million. The film also brought in $22 million overseas this weekend for a global cume that now totals $568.5 million.

    Rounding out the top five is Fox's Bohemian Rhapsody with an estimated $6 million as the drama is now just shy of $175 million domestically as it enters its sixth week in release. The film also continued its scorching performance overseas with an estimated $29.2 million this weekend for an international cume totaling $423 million and a worldwide tally that is now just $3.5 million shy of $600 million as it becomes one of the top ten worldwide releases of 2018.

    Outside the top five, Universal's Green Book took advantage of its five Golden Globe nominations and recognition from the National Board of Review and American Film Institute. In fact, the film showed a fractional increase versus last weekend, bringing in an impressive $3.9 million for a domestic cume that is now just shy of $20 million. The film is currently playing in 1,181 locations nationwide.

    Just outside the top ten, WB gave A Star is Born a little push this weekend, bringing it back to 1,631 theaters (+550) where it brought in an estimated $2.5 million. The film's domestic cume is now less than $3 million shy of topping $200 million. Internationally, A Star is Born has now brought in $172.6 million for a global tally just shy of $370 million.

    Fox Searchlight's The Favourite delivered an estimated $1.4 million from 91 locations (+57) for a domestic cume that now totals $3.5 million. The film will expand into approximately 525 theaters beginning next weekend.

    Beyond the domestic box office, the biggest news of the weekend is probably the debut of WB and DC Comics's Aquaman in China where the film debuted two weeks ahead of its domestic release to a monster $93.6 million. The performance represents 85% of the total market share for the weekend weekend in China while serving as the studio's largest opening weekend ever in China as well as the largest industry opening in the market for the month of December. The film will continue its international roll out next weekend, opening in 40+ more overseas markets, including the UK, Russia, Mexico and Brazil. The film opens domestically on December 21.

    Also getting a head start on its domestic release, Universal's Mortal Engines debuted in 43 markets this weekend with an estimated $17.9 million. Leading the way was a #1 opening in Russia with an estimated $4.1 million followed by Indonesia ($1.6m), South Korea ($1.6m) and Australia ($1m). Key upcoming releases include the December 12 opening in France followed by Italy (Dec 13), Germany (Dec 13), UK (Dec 14), Spain (Dec 14), Mexico (Jan 4), Brazil (Jan 10) and Japan (Mar 1).

    'Ralph Breaks The Internet' stays top of UK box office as 'Spider-Verse', 'Mortal Engines' gear up


    Rank Film (Distributor) Three-day gross (Dec 7-Dec 9) Total gross to date Week
    1 Ralph Breaks The Internet (Disney) £2.5m £7.4m Week 2
    2 The Grinch (Universal) £2m £19.5m Week 5
    3 Creed II (Warner Bros) £1.7m £6m Week 2
    4 Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald (Warner Bros) £1.5m £29.3m Week 4
    5 Bohemian Rhapsody (20th Century Fox) £973,627 £44m Week 7

    Disney

    Ralph Breaks The Internet stayed top of the chart after a tepid weekend at the UK box office. The film dropped 38% on its previous session, adding £2.5m for £7.4m to date. The film should have a long tail over the Christmas holiday. Predecessor Wreck-It Ralph took £23.8m in the UK, leaving its sequel with some ground still to make up.

    Nutcracker & The Four Realms was down 35% this weekend, adding £140,000 for £5.3m so far.

    Universal

    On a weekend that saw no new openers chart in the top five, The Grinch rose up two places, posting a very strong hold with £2m, a drop of just 14%, the lowest in the top 10. The film is now up to £19.5m in the UK, which is beyond the £15.2m grossed by the Jim Carrey version of The Grinch in 2000.

    Mortal Engines, the big-budget tale based on Philip Reeve’s dystopian novel of the same name, from director Christian Rivers and producer Peter Jackson, took £578,861 from previews on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. The film continues to preview this week, leading into its official opening on Friday (Dec 14).

    Sorry To Bother You opened to £250,453 in the UK, including £63,509 in previews, from 147 locations. The film, a satire on race and greed from writer-director Boots Riley, premiered at Sundance this year.

    Warner Bros

    Creed II fell 43% in its second weekend, adding £1.7m for £6m so far – that already takes it past the lifetime gross of predecessor Creed, which ended on £5.9m.

    In its fourth week, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald added £1.5m for £29.3m so far – that’s still a long way shy of the first film’s £54.7m UK gross.

    A Star Is Born is up to £28.9m, posting £114,00 this weekend. Smallfoot is up to £11m.

    20th Century Fox

    Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody stayed in the top five after its seventh weekend, dropping 37% with £973,627. The film now sits on an impressive £44m in the UK.

    The Old Man & The Gun, starring Robert Redford as a prison escapee in the 1970s who pulls off a string of heists, opened with £245,388 from 206 sites, an average of £1,191. With previews, the film’s officially opening is £313,525.

    Widows
    is up to £6m in the UK after adding a further £110,729 this weekend.

    Sony Pictures

    Previewing this weekend, well-reviewed animated superhero feature Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse placed sixth in the chart with grosses of £750,000 from showings on Saturday and Sunday. That figure also includes some charity previews held to benefit MediCinema. The film has its full opening on Wednesday, December 12.

    White Boy Rick, starring Matthew McConaughey and set during the ‘war on drugs’ in the US in the 1980s, opened to a soft £30,000 from 103 locations.

    The Possession Of Hannah Grace added £49,000 and is up to £233,000 to date.

    The Girl In The Spider’s Web has crossed the £1m mark after adding £23,000 this weekend.

    Venom is now up to £20.2m, Hotel Transylvania 3 is up to £20.1m.

    Lionsgate

    Robin Hood added £146,407 and is up to £2.6m in the UK.

    It's one of the biggest flops of the year, even the 2 Jamie's (Dornan and Foxx) can't save it.

    US Box Office: 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse' Delivers Largest December Animated Opening at $35.4 Million

    For the 13th time this year the top film at the weekend box office was adapted from a Marvel Comics property as Sony's animated release of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse took the weekend box office crown with the largest opening ever for an animated film in December. Warner Bros.'s The Mule also enjoyed a solid debut while Universal's release of Mortal Engines crashed and burned. Additionally, ahead of its domestic debut next weekend, WB's Aquaman continued its stellar international rollout as the #1 film at the global box office this weekend.

    Finishing at #1, Sony Animation's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse brought in an estimated $35.4 million for what is the largest three-day animated opening of all-time in the month of December. Previously, Universal and Illumination's Sing held that record with its $35.2 million opening. However, that debut does come with the caveat that it was part of a five-day opening that totaled $55.8 million back in December 2016. That being said, this is a great start for the production which should enjoy excellent play throughout the holiday season and beyond. The film received almost universally positive reviews heading into the weekend and earned a coveted "A+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences. Opening weekend crowds were largely male at 63% with 41% of the audience coming in aged 25 or older.

    Internationally, Spider-Verse brought in $21 million from 44 overseas markets, led by a $3.3 million opening in South Korea followed by the UK ($2.9m), Russia ($2.3m) and Australia ($2.3m). The film will add an additional 11 markets next weekend including openings in China and Spain.

    Finishing in second is Warner Bros.'s release of Clint Eastwood's The Mule, which delivered a $17.2 million opening from just 2,588 locations. The $50 million production received an "A-" CinemaScore from opening day audiences, and played to a crowd that was 54% male and 88% of which were over the age of 25. The film should play well over the coming weeks as a solid piece of counter-programming for adult audiences.

    With the best hold in the top ten, Universal and Illumination's The Grinch finished third, dropping just -23% for an estimated $11.58 million start to its sixth week in release. The film has now grossed nearly $240 million domestically to go along with $133.4 million internationally after adding an additional $23.3 million overseas this weekend including a $2.9 million opening in China and a $2.3 million debut in Japan.

    Disney's Ralph Breaks the Internet dipped to fourth, falling below The Grinch for the first time since its release, with an estimated $9.58 million as the film's domestic cume is now just shy of $155 million. Internationally, Ralph added $7.9 million this weekend for a global tally that now tops $285 million. The film will open in Japan and Hong Kong next weekend with several top markets still yet to release.

    Rounding out the top five is Universal's Mortal Engines, a $100 million production that took in a disastrous $7.5 million this weekend from 3,103 locations. The film entered the weekend with lackluster reviews, a sentiment that was mostly echoed by the audience with a "B-" CinemaScore. Opening weekend crowds were 55% male with 64% of the audience aged 25 or older. We don't expect this one to be around for too long.

    Internationally, Mortal Engines began its overseas run last weekend and added 11 additional markets this weekend for a total of 54 from which it brought in an estimated $11.5 million for a total of $34.8 million so far. Highlights this weekend include a #3 opening in France with an estimated $1.6 million followed by the UK ($1.59m), Germany ($1.3m), Italy ($869k) and Spain ($790k). The film has three major markets yet to be released made up of Mexico (Jan 4), Brazil (Jan 10) and Japan (Mar 1).

    Outside the top ten, Fox's PG-13 re-release of Deadpool 2, Once Upon a Deadpool, brought in an estimated $2.6 million from 1,566 locations. Grosses from the re-release's two week run are being added to the overall gross for Deadpool 2, which now stands at $322.3 million. The PG-13 edit was also released in 12 markets internationally where it brought in an estimated $1 million.

    Fox Searchlight's release of The Favourite expanded into 439 locations (+348) this weekend and brought in an estimated $2.57 million (+70.9%). Next weekend the film will expand nationwide, expected to play in 750-800 locations.

    It must also be mentioned that WB's international release of Aquaman followed up its monster debut in China last weekend with a similarly strong performance this weekend as it added an additional 42 markets and brought in an estimated $126.4 million for an international cume that now totals $261.3 million. The DC Comics property added another $54.2 million in China this weekend for a cume totaling over $189 million followed by releases in Brazil ($7.7m), Russia ($7.4m), Mexico ($7.9m), UK ($6.5m), Indonesia ($5.3m), Taiwan ($4.7m), Philippines ($4.3m), India ($4m) and Thailand ($3.5m). To go along with its domestic release next weekend, the film will open in France, South Korea, Germany and Spain with releases in Australia (Dec 26), Italy (Jan 1) and Japan (Feb 8) remain.

    Next week sees a flurry of new releases beginning on Wednesday with Disney's Mary Poppins Returns, which is set to play in ~3,800 locations. Following that, on Friday Warner Bros. will release Aquaman in over 4,100 theaters; Paramount will debut the latest Transformers feature, Bumblebee in ~3,500 locations; STX's romantic comedy Second Act starring Jennifer Lopez will debut in 2,600+ theaters; and Universal's Welcome to Marwen arrives in ~1,900 locations.
