Disney Animation Studios’ Ralph Breaks the Internet is easily dominating the post-Thanksgiving box office, where it grossed $5.7 million on Friday from 4,017 theaters for a weekend gross of $24 million to $25 million.
Generally speaking, the weekend after the holiday is one of the quietest of the year in terms of fresh studio offerings, and this year is no different as Ralph 2 and a crop of other tasty leftovers claim the top spots on the chart.
The only new wide title on the marquee is Screen Gems’ Possession of Hannah Grace. The horror pic earned $2.6 million on Friday from 2,065 locations for a weekend debut of $6.3 million, putting it at No. 7.
Hannah Grace, which cost less than $10 million to produce before marketing, tells the tale of a shocking exorcism that claims the life of a young woman. Months later, a morgue worker (Shay Mitchell) takes delivery of a disfigured body and, as it’s locked inside the basement, begins to experience horrifying visions and a demonic force.
Directed by Diederik Van Rooijen and written by Brian Sieve, Hannah Grace also stars Grey Damon, Kirby Johnson and Stana Katic.
Higher up on the chart, MGM and New Line’s box office hit, Creed II, is in a close battle with Illumination/Universal’s The Grinch for second place.
Both films are looking to earn around $16 million to $17 million for the three days.
Creed II grossed $4.9 million on Friday from 3,576 theaters, compared to $3.9 million from 3,984 locations for The Grinch, which will jump the $200 million mark domestically sometime on Sunday.
Warner Bros.’ Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and Fox/New Regency’s Bohemian Rhapsody round out the top five with projected weekend earnings of $11 million-plus and $8 million to $9 million, respectively.
