WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: In a traditionally slow box office period (two weekends this year, due to where Thanksgiving fell), Ralph Breaks The Internet repeats atop the chart with 25.8MM on a 54 percent drop; it's performing about like Moana, and Disney will be fine with 200MM domestic. The Grinch places with 17.MM on a 42 percent drop as it becomes the 10th movie this year to break 200MM domestic (on a much smaller budget than Ralph).  Creed II shows with16.8MM on a 53 percent drop, pacing well ahead of the "original" reboot of the Rocky franchise. In the fourth slot, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald skids 62 percent to gross 11.2MM; it's almost 50MM behind the last one at this point, but is over 500MM worldwide, so there will be more of this. Bohemian Rhapsody rounds out the Top Five with another 9.1MM; it's also over 500MM worldwide. Below the fold, the weekend's sole new wide release, The Possession of Hannah Grace, debuted with 6.5MM, which probably isn't bad against a 9.5MM budget.
