Weekend Estimates: ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ Eyes $25M+ Second Frame; ‘Grinch’ Adding $17M+; ‘Creed II’ Looks to Ring Up $16M+; ‘Hannah Grace’ Bows to $6M+

Saturday Update: Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet is on course for another first place finish this weekend following a $5.744 million estimated Friday haul, giving it a domestic total of $99.3 million through ten days of release. The hit animated sequel stands 12 percent ahead of the pace of last year’s Coco and appears to be heading for a sophomore weekend north of $25 million.

Creed II also continues its strong early run with $4.95 million to begin the weekend yesterday, giving it $69.3 million earned since debuting the day before Thanksgiving last week. That total marks a 28 percent day-to-day improvement over its 2015 predecessor. Current estimates for the three-day frame sit around $16.4 million.

Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch added another $3.9 million on Friday, boosting its domestic total to $189.7 million. As the holiday-driven animated hit continues to reel in families with Christmas approaching, the film looks toward another strong frame with a $17 million+ estimate as of this morning.

Fourth place belonged to Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald yesterday as the Wizarding World sequel added $3.1 million for an updated domestic cume of $126.2 million. Weekend estimates stand around $11.3 million.

Lone wide opener The Possession of Hannah Grace capped off the top five on Friday with a $2.56 million opening (including $625K on Thursday night). The low-budget horror pic is exceeding expectations at this stage as it looks toward a studio estimate of $6.4 million this weekend.

Early weekend estimates are below, to be followed by updated figures from studios on Sunday.
