Frozen 2 is on top of the box office for the second weekend in a row. The animated family movie from Disney was able to break the Thanksgiving box office record with $123.7 million domestically. The sequel easily beats the $109.9 million grossed by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in 2013. If that wasn't enough, it has been predicted that the weekend numbers for Frozen 2 could be even higher once everything is calculated tomorrow morning. In addition to the record, it is also the best Thanksgiving weekend for a Disney project. To date, the sequel has earned $738.5 million globally.
Rian Johnson's Knives Out debuted over the holiday weekend at number two after earning an impressive $41.7 million. The whodunnit is one of the best holiday box office performances in quite some time for a live-action original movie. Ford v Ferrari continues its success in theaters and took the third spot this weekend with $18.9 million. The movie, which stars Christian Bale and Matt Damon, has been receiving glowing reviews ever since it hit theaters and will more than likely end up with some Academy Award nominations.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood also had a good holiday and took the fourth position at the box office this weekend. The movie finds Tom Hanks starring as the iconic Mister Rogers and brought in $17.2 million. Queen & Slim debuted this weekend at number five after bringing in $15.8 million, which is better than anticipated. The movie stars Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith as a couple on their first date who end up on the run.
21 Bridges took the sixth spot at the box office this weekend after bringing in $7.9 million. The action thriller reunites Black Panther star Chadwick Bosemen with the Russo Brothers. While the movie has received mixed reviews, it has been holding steady at the box office. John Cena's Playing with Fire took the seventh spot after earning $6.2 million. The family comedy has earned $39.2 million domestically.
Midway was able to slip into the eight spot this weekend. The World War II movie was able to bring in $5.7 million. Todd Phillips' Joker remains in the top ten and took the ninth spot with $2.9 million. The comic book movie has passed the $1 billion mark and continues to earn at the box office, showing moviegoers a different take on the genre. Finally, Last Christmas took the tenth position after earning $2.8 million. The romantic holiday comedy hasn't been the success that the studio hoped it would be.
