‘Frozen 2’ Breaks Box Office Records On Opening Weekend | Film News


In its opening weekend, Frozen 2 has already made $350 million (nearly £272 million) worldwide, smashing the record for the biggest opening weekend for an animated film, according to Disney.


The Disney Pixar film has already beaten the likes of Toy Story 4, Incredibles 2, and Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, which made $240.9m, $235.8m and $218.4m respectively in their opening weekends.


The first Frozen film, released in 2013, made $93m (£72.28m) within the first five days of being released, and went on to make an incredible $1.27 billion in total. This heart-warming film, which champions the love between sisters Elsa and Anna, became the top-grossing animated film in box office history.


Disney has high hopes for its sequel therefore, which has certainly benefited from its simultaneous release; rather than staggering its release worldwide, which is often the case for animated films, Frozen 2 has been able to take advantage of being released on the same date in Britain, the US and in other major international markets.


In its opening weekend, Frozen 2 took $127 million in the US, making it the biggest animated film opening for November, and £15 million in the UK, which is the country’s record for an animated film.


This success comes amidst a year of box office hits for Disney, who have so far made about $3.5 billion in 2019.
