In its opening weekend, Frozen 2 — the follow-up to 2013’s animated musical Frozen — grossed $358.2 million at the global box office, with $130 million in North America and $228 million internationally. The movie is steadily heading toward the $1 billion worldwide mark, finishing its second weekend with $738.6 million cumulatively worldwide.
Looking to come in second is Rian Johnson’s well-reviewed whodunit Knives Out. The title from MRC and Lionsgate is tracking for $13 million to $16 million weekend at the North American box office. (MRC shares a parent company, Valence Media, with The Hollywood Reporter.)
The only new nationwide release at the U.S. box office is the animated title Playmobil: The Movie, based on the line of children’s toys. It features a voice cast that includes Anya Taylor-Joy, Jim Gaffigan, Kenan Thompson, Meghan Trainor and Daniel Radcliffe. The film is being distributed by STXfilms in North America at 2,300 locations, where it is tracking for a $1 million bow.
Holdovers this weekend include Universal’s Queen & Slim, Fox’s Ford v. Ferrari and Sony’s A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Launching at the specialty box office will be French drama Portrait of a Lady on Fire from Neon and Amazon Studios’ biographical drama The Aeronauts.
