Ralph Breaks the Internet surfed to a second straight week of box-office dominance by banking another $25.8 million—just a 53% ebb that put it over $100 million, Variety reports. Holdovers filled out the domestic top five with The Grinch ($17.7 million) followed by Creed II ($16.8 million), Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald ($11.2 million) and Bohemian Rhapsody ($7.9 million). Horror pic The Possession of Hannah Grace eked out $6.5 million despite ho-hum reviews (just 17% on Rotten Tomatoes) and—your movie factoid of the week—Crazy Rich Asians tanked in China with a $1.2 million bow, per Forbes.
