Frozen 2 stayed on top of the box office this past weekend, pulling in $34.7 million to easily claim the number one spot for the third week in a row. After also adding $90.2 million overseas, the film is sitting at $919.7 million worldwide. This weekend also sent Disney over the $10 billion mark for the year, the first studio in history to do so. That does not include the $11 million they have made form releasing Fox films since the purchase went thorugh. Frozen should pass $1 billion sometime in the next ten days, even when facing much stiffer competition the next two weeks.
The only film to open wide this weekend against Frozen 2 was Playmobil: The Movie. Sadly for STXfilms, it did not go well. The film only grossed $668,000, the third worst opening for a film ever to open on more than 2000 screens. It goes without saying that it is a terrible result for the family film. The film has already opened overseas and grossed $13 million.
Holdovers made up the rest of the top 5 behind Frozen 2. Rian Johnson's Knives Out added $14.2 million, bringing its gross above $60 million domestically. Ford Vs Ferrari and Queen and Slim are neck and neck and could switch places after the final tallies are calculated. FVF is at $6.54 million while Q&S is at $6.53 million for the weekend. Number 5 was A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, grossing $5.2 million.
