Frozen II is Breaking Records – No Dam Stops Disney Cash River

Frozen II ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Disney is well on the way to another billion club member ($739 million globally) …

With an estimated $85.2 million three-day and a $123.7 million five-day performance, Disney’s Frozen II not only topped the standard and extended weekend, it delivered record performances serving as the largest three and five-day grosses over the Thanksgiving holiday frame ever. To go along with that, the film has now grossed over $287 million in just ten days of release trailing just Incredibles 2 over the same number of days, which stood at an impressive $349.7 million after just ten days. In fact, Frozen II is already the 17th highest grossing animated film ever and is showing little sign of stopping.

‘Frozen II’ Feasts on Thanksgiving Records While ‘Knives Out’ & ‘Queen & Slim’ Enjoy Strong Holiday Openings – Box Office Mojo

Check out the Box Office Mojo week 48 estimates:

Frozen II grossed over $20 million more than the other four films behind it over the holiday

One of several totally unscientific ways that I’m measuring audience engagement and interest is by Rotten Tomatoes audience reviews. Check out these numbers compared to box office sales in the screenshot above:

  1. Joker⭐️⭐️⭐️½ (9 weeks) – 64,896
  2. Frozen II ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (2 weeks) – 26,397
  3. Knives Out ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ – 6,643
  4. Ford v Ferrari ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (3 weeks) – 15.188
  5. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood ⭐️⭐️⭐️½ (2 weeks) – 5,672
  6. Queen & Slim ⭐️⭐️½ – 3,875

The Joker inclusion shows how a recent box office juggernaut continues to gather reviews into the ninth week. The reviews have slowed down considerably the last few weeks with, as expected, the bulk coming in the first month a film is in the theater.

Reviews by Others

  • Sydney Lee (4.5/5): “…there are so many questions that make the story a bit confusing because we don’t know the backstory or just general questions that should’ve been answered the movie. Maybe they were supposed to be for the next sequel and if so, I can’t wait for it!”
  • Laura/DOTT (4/5): “It’s perhaps too familiar, in that it doesn’t really make for the most exciting film (meaning we pretty much know what’s coming and how it will all turn out), and the story itself is rather lacking in comparison to the first movie, but the strength of the characters and the originality and hooks of the new songs (particularly ‘Into the Unknown’, Frozen II’s signature tune that’s almost as mighty as ‘Let It Go’) firmly keep it from being relegated to the Bin of Crappy Sequels.”
  • alysonkrier: “Frozen was lightning caught in a bottle. Something that amazing rarely happens twice. But Frozen II is a wonderful, warm, pure attempt to do it again. Some might focus on the imperfections or simply want what they’ve been hoping for, but I see some major sparks within this beautiful film.”
  • B-Hop/Nerd with an Afro (6/10): ” The animation is great and I like Anna and Elsa’s relationship. But man, the story just did not work at all. There’s no cohesion to it or any focus, it feels thrown-together at the last minute, which makes me think that this was just another cash-in on the Frozen craze. And as much as I like certain songs like Into The Unknown, most of them aren’t as catchy or memorable as the songs from the previous films. “
  • Cameron Black (6/10): “Overall Frozen II is a confident sequel to the first. I won’t say it’s my cup of tea as it does do some daring things, but it holds back in order to stay mainstream and, I presume, to reboot the Frozen merchandise machine. The Disneyathon might change it later, but for now I’m sticking with a 6/10.”
  • ruth/FlixChatter (3/5): “…will leave its viewers with a lot to be impressed by and think about. Although worth seeing, its rather lackadaisical story arc, plodding soundtrack, and severe misstep of an ending make it hard for me to rate the movie highly.”
  • Laurel/Tales Past Midnight: “This movie gave me all the feels. I was already crying in the first 10 minutes then laughing at the funny antics of Olaf then crying again. There is heartbreak in truth but with that comes acceptance and growth.”
  • moviejoltz: “There was such a high bar to reach due to the success of the first movie that it would have taken super powers to try and top it. I give the studio credit for its valiant effort.”
  • Drew’s Movie Reviews: “There is a larger sense of adventure this time around and even more excitement than Frozen. While I usually feel most Disney animated films do not require sequels, this is an instance where I am extremely glad this sequel was made. Building on where the characters ended in the previous movie, this movie expands on them even further.”
  • Jason’s Movie Blog (4.1/5): “While the movie does struggle in how its present some of the new elements (never truly surpassing the original Frozen) and misses a few opportunities along the way, the rest of the feature is a wonderful sequel endeavor, which is complimented by the film’s impressive animation, mature character threads, solid voice talents, and just a entertaining sequel that works. To me, I liked this movie.”
  • Jasmine/SSZEE MEDIA: “…isn’t about familial relationships or about romantic relationships, even though these both play a factor in the plot. This film is about Elsa and her finding her identity.”
  • Gasbag Reviews (3.5/5): “The story has many threads that would be interesting if they had been given a little more room to breathe. The end result is less satisfying.”
