Ralph Breaks the Internet: John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman Reprise Roles in Sequel

It’s a rare occasion when a sequel is both better and more commercial than the original.

Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet dominated the Thanksgiving box office, generating a massive $84.6 million at 4,017 locations over the five-day holiday period and $56 million for the weekend.

Propelled by solid word of mouth, the Disney animated sequel now ranks as the second-best Thanksgiving debut ever, behind another Disney title, “Frozen,” which earned $93.6 million during its first five days.

Ralph Breaks the Internet carries a huge production budget–$175 million–so it will need to keep up momentum worldwide to turn a profit.

John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman reprise their roles from Wreck It Ralph, as the video game villain and his best friend navigate the internet.

The original film picked up $49 million over its first three days of release.
