‘Frozen 2’ Tops Box Office

Frozen 2

Princess Anna and Queen Elsa thawed hearts around the globe in their triumphant return to the big screen over the weekend. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ music-infused Frozen 2 opened to a record $127 million in the U.S. and a fiery $223.3 million overseas from 37 markets for a massive worldwide start of $350.2 million, the No. 1 global debut ever for an animated title, not adjusted for inflation (many family films have a staggered rollout offshore). The pic opened well ahead of expectations, particularly overseas.

The top 12 movies of the weekend, as of Sunday, November 24, are as follows:
