It’s not David O. Russell’s American Hustle or Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street, but rather Disney’s latest animated flick Frozen that’s dominating the worldwide box office.
According to Deadline, the movie has grossed over $500 million worldwide, with an estimated $250 million in the U.S. Only three other films have made it to the $500 million mark this year including Disney-Pixar’s Monsters University and Marvel’s Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World. Showing no signs of slowing down, the film has yet to debut in several major markets including China, Brazil, Argentina, Korea and Japan.
Released domestically over the Thanksgiving weekend, Frozen broke the record for highest Thanksgiving debut in history, earning $93.6 million in its first five days. Frozen currently ranks as the second highest grossing animated movie for Disney, behind 1994s The Lion King.
