FROZEN IS NOW THE HIGHEST-GROSSING ANIMATED FILM OF ALL TIME


In the past few days, Disney's Frozen crawled (at the rate it has been going, this counts as a crawl) past Toy Story 3 to become the highest-grossing animated film of all time worldwide. A gross-to-date of $1,072.4 billion ranks as tenth all time among all films, and The Dark Knight Rises' ninth place slot now looks to be its next target. Not bad for a film that most prognosticators forecasted wouldn't make it past $200 million domestically; on that topic, the DVD release has prompted Disney to pull it from many theatres lately - it certainly won't make Iron Man 3's second place from 2013 in the U.S. now, and may not be able to reach $400 million, despite being on the cusp of it. But that's no biggie, surely, not with these numbers.
