Monday Morning Box Office Report: Frozen II Stays Frosty, Playmobil Flops


It was business as usual at the box office over the weekend as Frozen II stayed on top for the third weekend in a row, adding another $34.7 million domestically and passing $900 million worldwide. It should pass $1 billion in the near future while Disney is about to hit $10 billion globally as a studio this year. The rest of the top 5 also remained exactly the same with Knives Out maintaining a decent hold in its second weekend and Ford v Ferrari beating Queen & Slim by just a few thousand dollars. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood rounded out the top 5. Dark Waters jumped up to #6 after a nationwide expansion, pulling in $4.1 million. Elsewhere, Playmobil: The Movie became the off brand bomb everyone predicted, opening with a pitiful $660,000, the third worst opening ever for a movie opening in 2,000+ theatres. Distributor STX supposedly experimented with variable pricing for the movie, although it’s hard to say if that helped or hurt the movie in any way.
