“Ralph Breaks the Internet” Debuts at Box Office Just Behind “Frozen”
Ralph Breaks the Internet took home a whopping $84.5 million in its first week since opening on Wednesday.
Coming in at first place, the sequel managed to pull in $55.7 million in just the past weekend alone, which contributed to the highest-grossing Thanksgiving weekend for the industry.
Not only did Ralph Breaks the Internet come in at number one this weekend, but it surpassed the opening weekend record of its previous entry, 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph, which pulled in $49 million in its opening weekend.
Ralph Breaks the Internet is now second when it comes to Disney’s five-day Thanksgiving grosses, just behind 2013’s Frozen at $94 million.
Cathleen Taff, who oversees Disney’s theatrical distribution, released a statement saying, “We’re very thankful for this weekend. It was a fantastic start and a great way to kick off the holiday season.”
