It was a strong U.S. holiday weekend at the box office, as the expected number one did great business, while the big new debut had a solid showing.
Frozen II once again topped the box office, bringing in an estimated $86.7 million over the three-day weekend. The film is now sitting at $289 million in North America and it’s looking like it will manage to outperform the original film here when it ends its run in theatres.
New release Knives Out had a great showing at the box office in its debut weekend, arriving with an estimated $27 million for the three-day weekend. It was clearly the picture for adults who needed a break from Elsa and Anna-mania, and it should have a good run for the duration of the holiday season.
As for the rest of the top five, Ford v Ferrari was in third place with $13.8 million, followed right behind it in fourth place by A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood with $12.9 million. New release Queen & Slim closed things out in fifth place with $10.8 million.
