Walt Disney's animation "Ralph Breaks the Internet" managed to beat the wave of new film productions that debuted during the weekend, including Thanksgiving. The number of new films managed to attract more Americans to cinemas during this period a year earlier, writes Bloomberg.
For the five days off at the box office in the US and Canada, $ 314 million was generated, according to Comscore.
The animated sequel is Disney's second premiere this month. "Ralph Broke the Internet" has earned $ 55.7 million in the weekend in North America. Box Office Mojo expected the band to generate $ 50 million in three days and $ 71.8 million for five holidays. Instead, for the entire period, Ralph surprised $ 84.5 million.
The three-day results have surpassed the $ 49 million debut of Ralph's Breaker, although six years have passed since the premiere of the first film. The previous band has gathered $ 471 million globally in 2012, helping Disney to revive its animation business after years of Pixar's overshadowing. The new movie enjoys strong reviews, and 87% of critics recommend it.
Already on Wednesday there were indications that the tape could break the record of the $ 93.5 million premiere of the Frozen Kingdom for Thanksgiving, says Box Office Mojo.
Creed 2, a sequel to Metro-Godlwyn-Mayer's "Rocky," in which Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone took part, debuted in second place at the box office. Its revenue amounted to $ 35.3 million, surpassing a three-day forecast of $ 33.5 million.
Robin Hood of Lionsgate, another of the new prime ministers, was ranked seventh with $ 9.13 million in revenue in three days.
