‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ Set to Lead Overstuffed Thanksgiving Box Office
The Grinch” and “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” are about to get a lot of company at movie theaters nationwide this Thanksgiving weekend. Four wide releases will be hitting theaters, with Disney’s “Ralph Breaks the Internet” expected to top the charts for the lucrative five-day holiday period.

Disney is projecting a five-day launch for the “Wreck-It Ralph” sequel of around $68 million, while independent trackers are looking at an opening of approximately $72 million. That would be a big step up from the $49 million three-day opening that “Wreck-It Ralph” made back in March 2012.

But it’s very possible that “Ralph” could overperform. Interest in the film has been high since Disney released a trailer featuring Sarah Silverman’s Vanellope von Schweetz meeting the Disney Princesses, and Fandango reported that presales for the film on their site are beating those of Disney’s 2016 Thanksgiving release “Moana,” which had an $82 million five-day opening.
