Frozen 2: Global Commercial Hit

Disney’s Frozen 2 dominated the box office competition during Thanksgiving, generating $85.2 million over the weekend and a record-setting $123.7 million over the five-day holiday frame.

The animated adventure soared past the previous Thanksgiving benchmark held by 2013’s “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and its $109 million bounty between the Wednesday and Sunday period.  Like “Frozen 2,” the “Hunger Games” sequel opened a week ahead of Thanksgiving.

After two weekends in theaters, “Frozen 2” is nearing the $300 million mark in North America with ticket sales currently at a massive $278 million.

The fantasy follow-up made $130 million in its inaugural outing, cementing a new high-water mark for Disney Animation.

Overseas, “Frozen 2” brought in another $164 million this weekend for an international tally of $451 million. The film has made $739 million at the global box office in just 12 days and will likely be the sixth Disney movie this year to cross $1 billion by the end of its theatrical run.
