‘Frozen’ Movie Exceeds Box Office And Billboard Expectations

By: Jasmine Allen - January 10, 2014

Animated film “Frozen,” which was released in the U.S. on November 27, has had a very successful week in the box office all the while surpassing other Disney films.

The wintry film has earned over $300 million nationwide and $642 million worldwide, exceeding other popular films such as: :”Toy Story 3,” “Shrek 2 and 3,” and “Finding Nemo.”

During January 3 to 5, the movie topped $298 million in North America alone.

The 1994 film “The Lion King” is the only other film that has reached this milestone, so now Disney celebrates the prestigious achievement of two movies. However, “Frozen” still falls second runner-up to its predecessor.

On Tuesday, the animated film received not one but two “Best Animated Feature” awards at the North Texas Film Critics Association’s Awards ceremony and the Oklahoma Film Critics Circle Awards ceremony.

What is even more shocking is that the “Frozen” soundtrack is now NO. 1 on the Billboard 200, beating Beyoncé’s self-titled album, “Beyoncé.”

According to Billboard.com:

““Frozen” is just the fourth animated film soundtrack to reach No. 1 since the Billboard 200 became a regularly published weekly chart in 1956. It follows Jack Johnson’s “Curious George” (2006), and Disney’s “Pocahontas” (1995) and “The Lion King” (1994).” (image)

It originally made is mark at No. 18 the second week of December, but the soundtrack continues to grow in sales because of its strong stance in the box office.

Overall, “Frozen” ranks fourth place as the highest-grossed film of 2013!

“Frozen” has definitely had an outstanding week and it seems as though people are enjoying the soundtrack or already in search to obtain movie paraphernalia of their own.



So, I’ve yet to see the movie. Have you? How was it?

    what milestone did frozen(and the lion king)both reach above other animated films? I agree that frozen has made quite a bit of money but if I remember correctly, some of the other animated movie listed on this, toy story 3, shrek 3, and finding nemo, all made well above $500 million dollars during their box office reigns. Heck, toy story 3 made 1 billion I think, and it holds a 99% on rotten tomatoes. How exactly does that make it so frozen “exceeds” it?I know frozen still as quite a it of time left in theaters butit has yt to “exceed animated films such as toystory 3, shrek 3, and finding nemo.

    As good as the song. That good. The director of the film is the lead poo-bah from Pixar, and he clearly believes that the story comes first. It shows.

    Fine, fine work. It’s another fairy tale that Disney has made into a legend.
