Frozen

Frozen” has reached yet another milestone.

The Disney toon crossed the $400 million mark at the domestic box office on Friday in its 23rd week.

Having hauled $1.1 billion worldwide, the princess tale recently became the highest-grossing animated pic of all time. It’s also the sixth top earning film, close behind “Iron Man 3’s” $1.2 billion. “Avatar” holds the number one spot with $2.8 billion.

“Frozen” is lower down on the domestic leader list at 19. It’s the sixth Disney movie to pass $400 million domestically, following “Marvel’s The Avengers” ($623 million), “Iron Man 3” ($409 million), “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” ($423 million), “The Lion King” ($423 million) and “Toy Story 3” ($415 million).

Not counting re-releases, “Frozen” is only the 15th movie to hit $400 million Stateside. Not even “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2” achieved that feat. Thanks to its reissue, “Star Wars” became the first film to cross $400 million in 1997.

“Frozen” also stayed firmly locked in the domestic top ten for 17 weeks. It opened to $93 million over Thanksgiving weekend.

The movie is still playing in 227 theaters and made $39,000 on Friday.
