Monday Morning Box Office Report: Frozen II Sets Thanksgiving Records, Knives Out Carves Up Leftovers


In its second weekend of release, Disney’s Frozen II continues to breathe life into the box office with a record setting Thanksgiving. The movie earned an estimated $85.3 million over three days and $123.7 million over five, both of which are the biggest ever for the U.S. Thanksgiving weekend. The movie has now earned $739 million worldwide after just 12 days. In second place, Rian Johnson’s Knives Out also managed to find an audience, pulling off an impressive $27 million debut ($41.7 million over five days). Ford v Ferrari fell to third place, followed by A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Queen & Slim rounded out the top 5 with a solid $11.7 million opening. It feels like the first time in quite a while that the top 5 consisted entirely of well-reviewed movies, all of which should continue to thrive next weekend with very little competition to get in the way.
