$81-mil in US ticket sales propels Moana to the top spot. 

Among other new Thanksgiving releases, Brad Pitt's World War II spy drama Allied fared the best, taking in $18-mil nationwide & finishing in 4th place.  Bad Santa 2, with Billy Bob Thornton back in the title role, came in a disappointing 8th ($9-mil).  The long weekend's real bomb was Warren Beatty's Howard Hughes/Hollywood story Rules Don't Apply.  Total box office gross for this film was only $2-mil, ranking it a dismal 12th.

The Top 5 looks like this:
#1-  Moana
#2 (down from #1 last weekend)-  Fantastic Beasts & Where To Find Them
#3 (previously #2)-  Dr. Strange
#4-  Allied
#5 (#4 last week)-  Arrival
