Disney Becomes First Studio to Gross $10 Billion at Box Office

Those ticket sales, a 60% decline from its massive Thanksgiving haul, boost its domestic tally to $337 million. The Movie, which opened Friday in the USA, earned just $656,530 domestically - one of the worst opening weekend totals ever for a wide release.

Disney's "Frozen 2" is well on its way to earning $1 billion globally after topping box office charts for the third straight weekend. For the third week in a row, the Disney movie has come in at number one in the rankings. The film made $34.7 million domestically, along with $90.2 million internationally, bringing its worldwide box office total to $920 million.

If Rise of Skywalker can bring in $1 billion before 2020, Disney will have released 7 billion-dollar movies this year.

Overseas, "Frozen 2" continues to enchant moviegoers as the fantasy follow-up powers to the $1 billion mark at the global box office.


The only new film to movie theater marquees this weekend was STX's "Playmobil", a cartoon based on the European children's toys.

Lionsgate's Knives Out continued to rake it in as it held onto the #2 spot in its second week with $14.1 million domestically for a $63.4 million total and $124 million worldwide, making it ever more likely that Rian Johnson will make a sequel. The film stars Daniel Craig - a detective with a droll, over-the-top Southern accent -Jamie Lee Curtis and Chris Evans in an Agatha Christie-worthy tale that critics have called "deliciously entertaining". Disney-Fox's "Ford v Ferrari" claimed third place, nabbing US$6.58 million from 3,746 venues. Matt Damon and Christian Bale star.

And in fifth was Sony's A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood, taking in US$5.2 million. The Mister Rogers film starring Tom Hanks has generated $43.1 million so far.
