LOS ÁNGELES – Disney ha recuperado el lugar que le corresponde en la cima de las listas de taquilla del Día de Acción de Gracias. “Encanto”, la nueva fábula musical animada del estudio, recaudó $ 40 millones desde el miércoles 24 de noviembre, un recuento sólido en un momento en que el público familiar no ha estado ansioso por regresar a los cines.

Se ha convertido en una tradición navideña para Disney lanzar una película familiar en torno al Día del Pavo, y “Encanto”, una película animada con elogios de la crítica, sirve como una señal prometedora de que los padres están ganando confianza para llevar a sus hijos pequeños al cine. En un informe de Variety, el total de cinco días de la película es considerablemente menor que el del estudio.

“Ralph Breaks the Internet” in 2018 ($ 84.6 million) and “Coco” in 2017 ($ 71 million). However, “Encanto” has landed the best opening weekend for an animated film during the pandemic. That’s notable because movies geared toward family crowds have struggled to sell tickets and in a normal year, animation is regularly one of the highest-grossing (if not the highest-grossing) genre.

Because of its $ 75 million production budget, “House of Gucci” will rely on substantial overseas ticket sales to turn a profit. Already, the R-rated drama has earned $ 12.8 million from 40 international countries, bringing its worldwide total to $ 34 million. Among foreign markets, “House of Gucci” had the biggest turnout in the United Kingdom and Ireland ($ 3.4 million), France ($ 1.9 million) and Mexico ($ 1 million).

“Encanto” was similarly pricey, costing the studio $ 120 million to make before accounting for marketing fees. Both “Encanto” and “House of Gucci” are playing exclusively in theaters, which should prove to be beneficial in the way of ticket sales.

Also new to theaters this weekend is Sony’s “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City,” a reboot of the long-running horror series, landed in fifth place. The R-rated thriller earned $ 8.8 million over the five-day holiday stretch, a result that fell short of expectations. It cost only $ 25 million to produce

recent Thanksgiving releases, such as “Frozen II” in 2019 ($ 123.7 million), “Ralph Breaks the Internet” in 2018 ($ 84.6 million) and “Coco” in 2017 ($ 71 million). However, “Encanto” has landed the best opening weekend for an animated film during the pandemic. That’s notable because movies geared toward family crowds have struggled to sell tickets and in a normal year, animation is regularly one of the highest-grossing (if not the highest-grossing) genre.
