To no one's surprise, Frozen 2 has iced out box office competition, breaking several major records since its Nov. 22 release. Over the five-day Thanksgiving break in the United States, which spanned from Nov. 27 to Dec. 1, the Disney sequel collected $123.7 million (£95.6 million), making it the highest-grossing film ever during the holiday stretch. The record was previously held by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which brought in $109 million in 2013 (approximately £84 million). Think that's impressive? Well, there's more.
Within its opening weekend, Frozen 2 raked in $130 million (£101 million) in North America, crowning itself the most lucrative animated movie ever released in November. In the UK, it made £15 million, a record in the country for an animated film, according to The Guardian.
Even more impressive, the adventure flick now stands as having the biggest opening weekend for Walt Disney Animation films, not including Pixar. It also had the best global opening for an animated film ever, making $358.2 million (£277 million) worldwide. As of Dec. 1, the movie's total domestic profit stands around $287.6 million (£222.3 million), and its composite global gains are around $738.6 million (£571 million). Now that's a cold front.
It's been a majorly successful year at the box office for Disney. In July, the company celebrated Avengers: Endgame surpassing Avatar as the No. 1 movie of all time after it crossed the $2.7892 billion mark (£2.1562 billion). The following month, the Lion King reboot joined the "all-time" team by becoming the highest-grossing animated film ever, beating 2013's Frozen. But, who knows, if Frozen 2 keeps earning coins, Elsa and Anna might reclaim that throne from King Simba.
