As of Monday, the offshore hold was -38% for a $163.8mil sophomore session, and Frozen's main star Elsa and also her merry gang maintained their No. 1 reign in 45 open markets.

This comes after a record-setting global debut last weekend and with new bows in Russia, Italy and Australia, including setting the highest animated weekend of all time in the former at US$13.7mil. Overall playing very well in Asia, Frozen 2 to date has become the highest grossing animated title ever in Indonesia and the Philippines.

It has already surpassed the lifetime cume of the Frozen enterprise in those markets as well as Thailand, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, India, China, Hong Kong and Peru.

Also of note, the sequel has already surpassed the lifetime cume of the first Frozen in 11 material markets including China. There, it is at US$90.5mil, despite local Friday (Nov 29) competition from Vicky Zhao’s Two Tigers. There are still a handful of hubs to come before Brazil on Jan 2.

Meanwhile, Daniel Craig-starrer Knives Out kicked off with US$28.3mil from 53 overseas markets including China where the debut was a very solid US$13.5mil at No. 3. In total, the Rian Johnson-directed murder mystery spooked up a terrific global start of US$70mil. - Asia News Network
