BOX OFFICE REPORT: FROZEN FREEZES OUT ALL OTHER 2013 RELEASES


Just about nobody, this time last year, would have expected Frozen to make over $400 million in the US. Hell, there were few who ever expected it to even make $200 million. It ranks third there for 2013, and 19th all-time. The worldwide news, however, is even better. Now celebrating its 11th weekend atop the Japanese box office, it's hurtling toward that $200 million mark there, and ranks fourth all-time - quite something for a country with its own supremely-successful animation studio. With such incredible grosses in the Far East, Frozen has now reached fifth on the all-time worldwide chart, handily passing Iron Man 3 with plenty of gas left in the tank. With $1.219 billion in total so far, it's over $150 million higher than its closest animated rival, Toy Story 3, in twelfth place.
