Ralph is no longer king at the box office, the top spot now belongs to another animated character.
“Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” came in at no. 1 as it swung into an impressive $35.4M opening weekend haul. The animated film not only won with audiences but also with critics, with a 97 percent score on RottenTomatoes.com.
Coming in at the second spot was the new film by box office legend Clint Eastwood, “The Mule.” The R-rated crime-drama made a little more than $17M, also in its first weekend of release. Finishing in the third and fourth spots were a pair of familiar faces, “The Grinch” at no. 3 with $11.6M and “Ralph Breaks the Internet” at four with a little under $10M.
Next weekend, things really begin to get interesting as a whole host of high-profile films hit the box office, including “Mary Poppins Returns,” “Aquaman” and “Holmes and Watson.”
