Box Office: ‘Frozen’ Crosses $1 Billion Worldwide

The milestone comes on the heels of Disney's double Oscar win

Frozen” had several reasons to celebrate last night (excluding the flubbed introduction of star Idina Menzel). Aside from nabbing two Oscars, including Disney’s first best animated feature win in history, the toon also crossed the $1 billion-mark at the worldwide box office.

The movie is the studio’s seventh release to reach the milestone, joining “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” “Toy Story 3,” “Alice in Wonderland,” and the second and fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” films.

Having earned an estimated $388.8 million Stateside and $611.5 million internationally since its late November release, “Frozen” is the second highest-grossing animated film of all time globally and the most profitable non-sequel animated pic ever.

Even more impressive is the fact that the film joined the billion-dollar B.O. club before debuting in Japan. It will bow in theaters there on March 14 and will be released on DVD in the U.S. four days later.

The musical, directed by Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, was Disney’s biggest opening, with a record-breaking Thanksgiving holiday debut of $93.6 million. It’s also remained in the top 10 at the domestic B.O. during all 14 weeks of its wide release, the longest run by any film in four years.
