The weirdest part of the whole Holiday pool is the mini-break that always happens after the Thanksgiving movies. What’s often a two-week span of November leftovers became a three-week span this year due to the early Thanksgiving and the lack of any studios having any faith in their films to open during the Holidaze shopping period. You don’t think if Black Panther or Star Wars came out on November 30 people wouldn’t go see it?! If people can find a way to get porn without Starbucks, I’m pretty sure they can find a way to get to the theaters for something they actually want to see.

With that said, let’s take a look at those last entrees in November and see which are still in the fridge for second helpings and which tossed Thanksgiving night.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald had what seemed an ok opening with $62.2 million. That appearance changes however when the real “crime” was exposed that this was the lowest opening ever for Harry Potter universe movie. Oops.

In the muggle world, however, Fantastic Beasts 2 was only down $12 million from the first FB film. That doesn’t seem so criminal. Then again, the 50% and now 60% drops in ensuing weekends highlight the fact that these beasts might not be as “fantastic” as we’ve been led to believe. Good news there’s only more film they have to throw out there to be done with this… wait, what?! This was planned to be a 5-movie series and it’s already heading sideways with three films to go?! Looks like J.K. Rowling’s going to be finding a time-travelling DeLorean to get Harry, Hermione, and Ronald involved in the next picture to keep this franchise afloat. It’s currently at $134 million after three weeks.

Two other minor films, Instant Family and Widows, opened to $14 and $12 million respectively and they will expectedly be available for onDemand by Christmas and New Years since they’ll have been long gone out of theaters by then. Happy Holidays!

To Turkey Day where Ralph Breaks the Internet almost broke the record for biggest 5-day Thanksgiving opening ever with $84.6 million, even if it was frozen out of the top spot by, oh yeah, Frozen. It also bested Moana which means Ralph might have a really good shot at a $250 million total. Still, some of those musical films have a repeated-viewing staying power that Ralph may lack, despite it actually having one singing number in the film.

Ralph might have decided to “wreck-it” in his second weekend, though, with a 55% drop and grossing only $8 million more in its second week than The Grinch did in its fourth. All those “we’re #1” ads Disney keep running on TV for Ralph may not be working as The Grinch seems to have staked its claim as the “holiday family of the season.” That, and for those who’ve actually seen Ralph Breaks the Internet, it just leaves you wanting to watch Wreck-It Ralph a lot more times before you ever got back to that one with the WeeFee.

Unlike Fantastic Beasts, Creed II increased on its previous films success. Opening with $56 million, that was almost $14 million more than Creed’s debut in 2015. Creed kept punching in its second weekend with another $17 million. Creed II should surpass the first films $109 million total. Even if it achieved $130 million, though, that will still leave it without a puncher’s chance of making the Top Five this year. I feel like you’re going to have to get north of $175 million to get noticed this season.

Oh, and there was this film named Robin Hood that was released. It has made $21 million in 10 days and it cost over $100 million to make. Talk about stealing from the rich and giving it to yourselves.

The Top Five If Today Was MLK Day:
#1. Dr, Seuss’ The Grinch - $203.7 million
#2. Bohemian Rhapsody - $164.3 million
#3. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald - $134.5 million
#4. Ralph Breaks the Internet - $119.1 million
#5. Creed II - $81 million
