Disney Pictures’ “Frozen” sequel has dominated the pre-Thanksgiving holiday box-office, coming in well ahead of expectations since launching on Friday.
The film, which scored quite good reviews from critics and audiences, snagged a stunning $127 million domestically and a new animated record of $350 million worldwide in its three-day opening, the latter smashing the $241 million record made by “Toy Story 4” earlier this year.
“Ford v Ferrari” held off the new competitors, taking second place for its second weekend with a further $16 million. The Tom Hanks-led Mr. Rogers biopic “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” was third with $13.5 million – an excellent start and with a budget of just $25 million, it’ll be in profit soon.
Less successful was the Chadwick Boseman-led “21 Bridges” which debuted to a soft $9.3 million, while “Charlie’s Angels” plummeted from its already disastrous start to an eighth position placing with $3.1 million for its second weekend. In limited release, Todd Haynes’ “Dark Waters” did decently with a $27,500 per-screen average across four locations.
