HOLLYWOOD─There has been plenty of films to choose from at the box-office, but it seems nothing can compare to the box-office performance of the Disney sequel, “Frozen II.” The animated feature managed to dominate the box-office for the third consecutive weekend taking in $34.7 million. The sequel has amounted over $337 million at the domestic box-office and is nearing close to $1 billion in box-office receipts on the global scale.
Landing in second place was the murder mystery “Knives Out” with $14.7 million. After about 2 weeks in theaters, “Knives Out” has earned over $63 million at the domestic box-office. Rising to third place was “Ford v. Ferrari” with about $6.5 million. The race car drama is about $9 million short of reaching the $100 million mark at the domestic box-office.
“Queen and Slim” dropped to fourth place with $6.53 million and has already grossed over $26 million at the domestic box-office. Rounding out the top five was “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” with $5.2 million. This weekend sees the hotly anticipated sequel “Jumanji: The Next Level” starring Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson.
For those looking for scares a second remake of the 1974 classic “Black Christmas” arrives in theaters on Friday the 13th. Be warned this remake is PG-13, so I don’t know if that will diminish its impact.
