It’s official: Frozen 2 has iced out the box office competition.
The animated sequel’s box office numbers are in and they are big! The film has debuted to a whopping $127 million in the domestic box office, from 4,440 theaters in North America. The feature also did well in its opening weekend overseas hauling $223 million, making its global haul $350 million.
Per Variety, the animated adventure feature has set a November record for an animated movie and is officially the third-best start for an animated film behind Incredibles 2 ($182 million) and Finding Dory ($135 million).
“There was certainly a high bar,” said Disney’s president of global distribution Cathleen Taff, “but the creative team put together a journey that feels really authentic. It’s resonating with fans and general audiences alike, so we think it will play right into the holiday weekend.”
