Box Office Report for the Week of November 24th (Thanksgiving Weekend)

This holiday weekend, Encanto soared in theaters with a $40.3 million during the entirety of the Thanksgiving break, displacing Ghostbusters: Afterlife as the number one movie of the week, but Jason Reitman’s film is holding out fairly strong with a 44% drop for its second week, totaling its grosses at $87.7 million. Ridley Scott‘s House of Gucci opened in third place, marking a solid, if not groundbreaking, start for the adult drama.

It’s also worth noting that Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Licorice Pizza has secured the best pandemic ever box-office opening for an Independent Film, which grossed $335,000 per only four theaters in New York and Los Angeles that were playing it, averaging $83.852 per location, compared to the previous record-holder, Wes Anderson‘s The French Dispatch, which averaged $25.000 per 52 theaters.

  1. Encanto (Disney): $27M- 3,980 theatres
