Walt Disney’s 'Frozen' Crosses $400 Million

On its 155th day of domestic release, Walt Disney’s animated smash Frozen has crossed $400 million at the domestic box office. Coming off a $67 million Fri-Sun debut over its $93m Thanksgiving weekend opening, the film has earned a mammoth 5.9x its opening weekend number. And while rank doesn’t matter per-se, its 17-week hold in the top ten brings to mind the kind of old-school hits like Ghostbusters and Back to the Future that used to just play for months and months on end.

Heck, Frozen has been out on VOD since February 25th and available on DVD since March 18th. Frozen has actually earned $15.7m since its VOD release and $3.3m since it dropped on DVD/Blu-Ray and sold 3.8 million copies in a single day. This wasn’t just a predetermined smash hit. Frozen touched a nerve around the world in a way few films do today.-(Forbes.com)

Following its recent release in Japan, Disney's Frozen is now the highest-grossing animated movie of all time (not adjusting for inflation). Takings since release reached $1.07 billion this weekend, narrowly surpassing the previous record holder, Toy Story 3. The Japanese release also pushed it into the global all-time top ten for the first time. Loosely based on Hans Christian Anderson’s The Snow Queen, Frozen came out in the US last November, and was the first non-Pixar 3D animation from Disney to win an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.
