“Frozen II” continues to dominate the domestic box office, holding onto the number-one spot for the third consecutive weekend.
As Variety reports, DIsney’s animated sequel brought in $34.5 million in its third weekend of release, for a domestic total to date of $335 million.
Overseas, the film has earned an additional $582.1 million, for a worldwide total of $919.6 million, and appears likely to become the eighth film of 2019 to surpass the billion-dollar mark.
While “Frozen II” continued to captivate moviegoers, there were only two new films released over the weekend: “Dark Waters” and “Playmobil: The Movie”.
“Dark Waters” had been in limited release for two weeks, and its first week in wide release saw the environmental drama starring Mark Ruffalo earn a respectable $4.1 million.
It was a far different story for “Playmobil: The Movie”, however, which bombed so badly it now ranks among the five worst openings in film history.
According to Variety, the animated family comedy — based on the European LEGO-like building blocks — brought in a measly $811,000 despite playing on 2,337 screens — a per-screen average of just $347.
With “Frozen II” maintaining the top spot, “Knives Out” came in at a distant second, with domestic ticket sales of $14.5 million in its second weekend.
Rounding out the top five are: “Ford v Ferrari” in third place, adding $6.58 million to a domestic total of $91 million; “Queen and Slim” at number four with a $6.53 million weekend; and “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” at fifth, bringing in $5.2 million in its third weekend for a domestic total to date of $43.1 million.
