BOX OFFICE: MOANA Surfs Straight To #1 As DOCTOR STRANGE Nears $200 Million Domestically

BOX OFFICE: MOANA Surfs Straight To #1 As DOCTOR STRANGE Nears $200 Million Domestically

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was no match for Disney's latest animated effort at the Thanksgiving box office, while Marvel's Doctor Strange looks set to hit another benchmark...

Moana opened big this past Wednesday, but after earning an impressive $21.8 million yesterday, the latest release from Disney Animation is on track for a projected five day holiday debut in the $80 million range. That's a great result, and yet another hit for the studio in what has been a great year for them. The Dwayne Johnson led release won't top Frozen's $93.6 million for the second best Thanksgiving opening in history, and for now, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire retains the record. 

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them did well in its second weekend, earning $18.6 million on Friday for a five day haul of around $65 million. As a result, it's safe at #2 and now set to reach $350 million worldwide by Monday. That's more than enough to justify at least one of those four sequels! 

 
The rest of this weekend's new releases have done fairly well, but none of them proved to be a match for Moana and Fantastic Beasts. Doctor Strange meanwhile also had a good few days, as an additional $5.4 million on Friday means that it's now made £197.2 million domestically and is set to cross the $200 million mark today. We'll hopefully have an update and its worldwide cume for you pretty soon.
