‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald’ tames the box office, conjures up $62M

It was a magical weekend at the box office this weekend. Moviegoers were under the spell of “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald.”

The film brought in $62M in its opening weekend, on its way to the top spot at the box office and obliterating the competition. Last weekend’s top flick, “The Grinch” took in an additional $38.2M in its second weekend of releases, good enough for a distant second place at the box office.

“Bohemian Rhapsody,” the film about the Freddie Mercury-led group, Queen, came in at third place with $15.7M, as it continues to perform well.

Rounding out the top five were a pair of newcomers: “Instant Family,” starring Mark Wahlberg with just under $15M in fourth and the crime, thriller “Widows” in fifth with $12.3M. 

Despite some stiff competition from “Ralph Breaks the Internet” and “Creed II,” the second Fantastic Beasts film should hold onto the top spot, boosted by the Thanksgiving holiday.
