CelebNMovies247.com has learned that Disney animated film and sequel ‘Frozen 2’ is set to break Thanksgiving Record!
It is expected that the animated adventure will easily top the $109.9 million record set by “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” in 2013 during the five-day period.
“Frozen 2,” which opened on Nov. 22, should go past the $300 million mark by the end of the weekend.
What we are hearing is that the sequel is coming in well above forecasts of $100 million to $120 million during the Thanksgiving holiday.
As for, Lionsgate’s mystery-comedy “Knives Out” it is showing plenty of traction with early estimates of $40 million for the five-day holiday, which includes $3.7 million from previews. “Knives Out” opens in 3,391 sites Wednesday amid strong reviews.
“Knives Out” had been forecast to open in the $20 million to $25 million range. The studio raised its guidance Wednesday to the $28 million to $33 million range but another tracking was significantly higher.
Then there is Universal’s “Queen & Slim,” starring Daniel Kaluuya and Jodie Turner-Smith, is also beating forecasts with about $15 million for the five days. The film had been expected to earn $10 million over the extended holiday. Melina Matsoukas, the filmmaker behind Beyonce’s “Formation” music video, directed the film, while Lena Waithe wrote the script.
“Queen & Slim” has an 87% Rotten Tomatoes score. Production companies include Makeready and Bron Creative.
“Frozen 2” comes six years after the original “Frozen,” which was a smash hit as the highest-grossing animated movie ever, raking in $400 million in North America and $1.28 billion worldwide in 2013.
We will see if “Frozen 2” will match or beat out “Frozen,” which seems highly plausible.
Sony’s second weekend of “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and Disney-Fox’s third frame of “Ford v Ferrari” will be contending for third place.
