This weekend, Disney’s “Frozen” became the highest grossing animated film of all time. Its $1.072 billion worldwide gross has surpassed the $1.063 billion of “Toy Story 3,” which was the previous record-holder for biggest animated feature.
No new animated movies debuted in the United States this weekend, although Disney’s family-oriented “Muppets Most Wanted” opened. The film opened in second place with a disappointing $16.5 million (estimated), far below the $29.2M opening of the franchise reboot “The Muppets” in 2011. That earlier film plummeted at the box office, too, after its opening, suggesting that the Muppets franchise isn’t as relevant to kids today as it was with earlier generations.
The DreamWorks feature “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” moved from second to first place in its sophomore weekend with a modest gross of $21.2 million (estimated)
The DreamWorks feature “Mr. Peabody & Sherman,” directed by Rob Minkoff, opened in the United States this weekend with an estimated $32.5 million. The film settled for second place behind “300: Rise of An Empire.”
It’s a special day for directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee. Their film “Frozen” will win the Best Animated Feature Oscar on the day that it crosses $1 billion in global box office revenue. It becomes, along with “Toy Story 3,” only the second animated feature to achieve this distinction, and the 18th film overall.
