HOLLYWOOD─”Frozen II” opened to big numbers last weekend at the box-office and that success continued during the Thanksgiving holiday as well. The sequel broke box-office records taking in close to $124 million over the holiday weekend. That is massive. Since its release, “Frozen II” has amounted over $287 million at the domestic box-office and is certain to cross the $300 million mark by mid-week.
It was good news on multiple fronts at the multiplex. The mystery thriller, “Knives Out” starring Daniel Craig, Jamie Lee Curtis and Chris Evans pleased audiences with an impressive $41.7 million haul since its release on Wednesday. The movie has been heavily touted and was a critical darling for many. “Ford v Ferrari” dropped to third place taking in $19 million, and has earned over $80 million at the domestic box-office since its release.
Dropping to fourth place was “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” which earned $17.3 million during the long holiday weekend. The feel good flick starring Tom Hanks has since earned over $34 million at the domestic box-office since its release. Landing in fifth place was the dramatic thriller “Queen and Slim” with $15.8 million.
Don’t expect any major new releases this week, but plenty of awards contenders are getting limited releases in theaters this week, included the hotly touted “Marriage Story” starring Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson.
