Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Ralph Breaks The Internet opened top in North America on the second highest five-day Thanksgiving debut on $84.5m, while MGM’s Creed II delivered a knock-out number two debut, and Fox Searchlight’s The Favourite produced the best site average for a limited debut in almost two years.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald took a hit in its sophomore session, while Taron Egerton and Jamie Foxx starrer Robin Hood opened poorly in seventh place on $9.1m through Lionsgate-Summit in 2,827 theatres.

The studio expanded the theatre count from 25 to 1,063 and the resulting 1,599% box office hike delivered $5.4m for an early $7.8m running total.
