The animated sequel is nearing the $300 million mark at the domestic box office and could collect another $30 million to $40 million this weekend. Recent Thanksgiving leftovers such as “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Frozen” and “Ralph Breaks the Internet” declined between 54% and 64% after the holiday frame. Like “Catching Fire,” “Frozen 2” initially opened a week ahead of Thanksgiving, while “Frozen” and “Ralph Breaks the Internet” launched the day before.
“Frozen 2” generated a record-setting $125 million over the five-day holiday weekend, bringing its domestic tally to a massive $288 million. After two weeks in theaters, the film has earned $742 million at the global box office. Adding to Disney’s banner year, the latest adventures of Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf should become the sixth Disney movie to cross $1 billion in 2019.
