U.K. Box Office: 'Frozen' Breaks Back Into Top 10
A year after its original release, a new sing-along version of Disney's animated hit re-enters the British box office in seventh place
Exactly a year after it was first released in the U.K., Disney’s all-conquering, Oscar-winning Frozen has re-entered the box office top 10 thanks to a special sing-along version.
The animated tentpole grossed $280,000 over the weekend to come in No. 7, and boosting its total U.K. earnings to $64 million, according to Rentrak.
Frozen is the highest-grossing animated feature of all time at the worldwide box office, besting Pixar's Toy Story 3.
Higher up the chart, Paddington swooped in to knock The Hunger Games - Mockingjay Part 1 from the top spot, earning $8 million and becoming StudioCanal’s biggest U.K. opening of all time. The third Hunger Games installment grossed $7.7 million in its second weekend, while The Imitation Game saw its gross climb to $14.9 million after earning another $2.2 million.
The second new entry in the top 10 was Horrible Bosses 2, which survived poor reviews to take home $2 million.
