The magic continues at the global box office for Disney’s “Frozen,” which surpassed the studio’s “Iron Man 3” this weekend to become the fifth-highest grossing film of all time, with $1.219 billion worldwide.
Boosted by its $400 million-plus Stateside cume, added to a nearly unheard of $194 million cume in Japan, “Frozen” now stands as the second-highest grossing release for Disney, behind Marvel’s “The Avengers,” which is the No. 3 all-time top grosser, with $1.5 billion globally. “Iron Man 3” made $1.215 billion globally last year.
“Frozen” now stands behind the No. 4 all-time worldwide grosser — “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” — with $1.34 billion.
In its nearly seven-month global run, “Frozen” already has become the highest-grossing animated film of all time, far surpassed “Toy Story 3,” at $1.063 billion worldwide.
In Japan, meanwhile, “Frozen” has ranked No. 1 at the weekend box office for eleven straight weeks and stands as the third-highest grossing Western film there ever. It’s a monumental achievement for the toon considering Japan has such a strong local animation tradition, not to mention a tough-to-topple local live-action film industry, in general.
Elsewhere interntaionally, the original toon has done boffo biz in South Korea, which has contributed $77 million cumulatively, followed by the U.K. and China, with $65.3 million and $48.7 million, respectively.
