Since its premiere in November 2013, ‘Frozen’ has grossed over US$1.2bil in theatres.
Thanks to the Japanese, the animated movie is still popular after six months.
Since its release in November 2013, Disney’s seasonal animated feature Frozen has brought in over US$1.2bil in theatres worldwide, placing it ahead of Iron Man 3 in the ranking of the most lucrative blockbusters at the global box office.
Thanks to its popularity with Japanese moviegoers, Frozen is still putting money in Disney’s coffers six months after its premiere. As of Sunday, May 25, the movie had earned a cumulative total of US$1,219,179,972 in theatres. This impressive result makes Frozen the fifth highest grossing feature in the history of the box office.
The story of Anna and her sister Elsa overtook Iron Man 3, which grossed US$1.215bil during its run in theatres. At the top of the podium are Avatar (US$2.7bil), Titanic (US$1.8bil), The Avengers (US$1.5bil) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (US$1.3bil).
Frozen has also become Disney’s highest-grossing feature – another title taken from Iron Man 3 – and the only animated feature among the top 10 highest-grossing films at the worldwide box office. However, Frozen is not the only animated movie to break the symbolic US$1bil barrier at the box office: Toy Story 3, in 12th place overall, grossed US$1.063bil in theatres. – AFP Relaxnews
