‘Frozen’ Reaches $1.219 Bil to Become Fifth-Highest Grossing Film Globally

Disney's toon tentpole delivered boffo results in Japan

The magic continues at the global box office for Disney’s “Frozen,” which surpassed the studio’s “Iron Man 3” this weekend to become the fifth-highest grossing film of all time, with $1.219 billion worldwide.

Boosted by its $400 million-plus Stateside cume, added to a nearly unheard of $194 million cume in Japan, “Frozen” now stands as the second-highest grossing release for Disney, behind Marvel’s “The Avengers,” which is the No. 3 all-time top grosser, with $1.5 billion globally. “Iron Man 3” made $1.215 billion globally last year.

“Frozen” now stands behind the No. 4 all-time worldwide grosser — “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” — with $1.34 billion.

In its nearly seven-month global run, “Frozen” already has become the highest-grossing animated film of all time, far surpassed “Toy Story 3,” at $1.063 billion worldwide.

In Japan, meanwhile, “Frozen” has ranked No. 1 at the weekend box office for eleven straight weeks and stands as the third-highest grossing Western film there ever. It’s a monumental achievement for the toon considering Japan has such a strong local animation tradition, not to mention a tough-to-topple local live-action film industry, in general.

Elsewhere interntaionally, the original toon has done boffo biz in South Korea, which has contributed $77 million cumulatively, followed by the U.K. and China, with $65.3 million and $48.7 million, respectively.
