Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald charged right out of the box-office gate and dethroned The Grinch by a tally of $62.2 million to $38.1 million. While that's a lesser haul than the $75 million Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them debuted with domestically, the sequel is holding steady with its numbers abroad, reports Forbes. Bohemian Rhapsody slipped to No. 3 with $15.7 million, Instant Family debuted at fourth with $14.7 million, and Widows debuted at No. 5 with $12.3 million. (Read more box office stories.)
