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.
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.
