The American Disney-animated film, “Wreck-It Ralph 2”, has firewood, made from the box-office competition during the long weekend in the United States. The sequel exceeded the 49 million dollar of the original and made his debut with 84,6 million dollars, according to Exhibitor Relations. It is the second best launch for a weekend of Thanksgiving.
“Frozen” remains number one with 93,6 million dollars. The total Thanksgiving-box-office climbed to 314 million dollars, a new record since the 294 million dollar from 2013.
At number two was a successful sequel. “Creed II” debuted with $ 55 million and beat as the first film (29 million dollars), knock-out. It is the eighth liege in the “Rocky”saga, starring to play for (of course) Sylvester Stallone, Michael B. Jordan as Adonis Creed and Dolph Lundgren.
On the third place, the animated film from Universal Studios “The Grinch”, a grumpy green creature, 30.2 million dollars collected in cinemas in the United States and Canada (180,4 million dollars since the release).
Just next to the stage is ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes or Grindelwald”. The “Harry Potter”-spin-off picks 29.6 million dollars together (117,1 million dollars in total).
“Bohemian Rhapsody”, the biopic with Rami Malek as Queen singer Freddie Mercury closes the top five with 13.9 million dollars (152 in total).
“Robin Hood” shot, then again in addition to goal and yielded only 14.2 million dollars. With a budget of about $ 100 million, it looks so not good for the Merry Men.
The modern retelling of the Robin Hood legend would be on your way to the biggest blockbuster hit since “King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword” and Disneys “The ballet nutcracker and the Four Realms”. Despite the English setting knew the film even in the United Kingdom, no pots to break, and brought in only 1.7 million dollars during the opening weekend.
That is a heavy blow for Lionsgate that there are “Chin” and “The Spy Who Dumped Me” already, two box-office disappointments has her. Their total revenue is now 54 per cent lower than last year. 2019 brings, perhaps, an improvement in the form of new “Hellboy”and “John Wick”films.
