A record-high preview hauls for a Disney


Ralph Breaks the Internet and Creed II are getting a great response. Ralph Breaks the Internet earned a promising $3.8 million in preview screenings. That’s a record-high preview haul for a Disney Thanksgiving release, besting Coco ($2.3m towards an eventual $73m Wed-Sun debut weekend), Moana ($2.6m towards an $82m holiday haul), The Good Dinosaur ($1.3m towards a $55m launch) and Frozen ($1.2m towards a $93m wide release debut frame). “Ralph Breaks the Internet” follows video game villain Ralph and his best pal Vanellope, and brings back original vocal stars John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman. “Wreck It Ralph,” its predecessor, landed an Oscar nomination when it opened in 2012 and racked up $471 million worldwide. “Ralph Breaks the Internet” carries a hefty $175 million production budget, so it will need to be a global smash to make money. MGM’s “Creed II,” the eighth installment in the “Rocky” film series, brings back Michael B. Jordan as Donnie, a pugilist looking to prove he’s worthy of his dad, Apollo Creed’s, name. The first “Creed” movie launched with $29 million over the three-day frame and went on to earn $109 million in North America. In addition to Jordan, “Creed II” brings back Sylvester Stallone and Tessa Thompson.
