The Disney animated sequel “Frozen II” dominated the Thanksgiving weekend, generating an estimated $85.2 million at the domestic box office from Friday through Sunday, a low 34.6% drop from last weekend, along with a $123.7 million haul over the five-day holiday.
So far it has earned a domestic total of $287.5 million and a global total of $738.5 million, with the billion-dollar mark expected to be passed within the week.
Buoyed by great reviews, comedic murder mystery “Knives Out” came in second place with $27 million over the weekend and $41.7 million over the five-day – double its projections and having already made back its $40 million budget. Internationally its box-office haul sits at $70 million.
Romantic drama “Queen and Slim” also exceeded expectations, the Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith led film opened in fifth with $11.7 million over the weekend and $15.8 million over the five-day holiday period. Costing $20 million, it will also be ruled a strong success.
“Ford v Ferrari” and “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” were third and fourth respectively with the racing drama snagging $13 million for the three-day and $19 million for the five-day. The Mr. Rogers biopic snagged $11.8 million for the three-day and $17.2 million over the five-day.
