Moana manages to three peat at number one. I am a little surprised by this, solely due to the release of Office Christmas Party. I thought this was prime real estate for a Christmas comedy, but Moana is a strong champion at the moment. There’s no knocking off a strong animated film, if the competition is shaky at best. Shaky meaning no true blockbuster to dethrone it. I think it’s safe to say that this is Moana’s last weekend at number one. That little Star Wars movie is coming out this week.

Office Christmas Party $17.5M
This weeks most noteworthy release couldn’t quite dethrone Moana. It was pretty close. I just though that it’d perform better, maybe in the $20-25M range. It’s hard not to be a little disappointed by this result if you’re the studio.

Fantastic Beasts $10.7M
Fantastic Beasts has been a money printing machine. $480M world wide thus far. It’s unreal, WB has to be thrilled to have the DCEU and this franchise going at the same time.
Full Fantastic Beasts review:
Arrival has now nearly doubled its $47M budget. It’s great to see how much word of mouth spread about this film. It’s been out for around a month and a half, to see it still in the top five is a feat.

Doctor Strange $4.6M
$645M worldwide, that’s an incredible haul. People go out in droves for that third, fourth, or even fifth viewing as the release winds down. Doctor Strange has infinite rewatch ability.
