Wow. Disney’s Frozen 2, like the original, broke all kinds of records at the box office during its first week in release including biggest worldwide opening for an animated film (37 markets), the top international opening of all time for an animated film ($350 million), and biggest domestic November opening for an animated film ($130 million).
The long-awaited Frozen 2 has landed in cinemas, a full six years after the first movie became the biggest animated film of all time. And thanks to a sterling turnout worldwide over the weekend, Frozen 2 has already nabbed some records of its own.
Making just over $350 million worldwide overall, it makes it the biggest ever global opening for an animated movie, though its domestic US figure fell just behind that of Incredibles 2.
This means that it’s putting Disney on track for six billion dollar movies this year, alongside Aladdin, Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel, Toy Story 4 and The Lion King. It’s the first studio to ever reach such a box office landmark.
Check out this video of a drag queen dressed as “Elsa” from Frozen freeing a stuck police wagon in a blizzard.
A drag queen dressed as Elsa just single-handedly freed a stuck police wagon from a blizzard in the middle of March. If that sentence doesn’t perfectly encapsulate the spirit of Boston, I don’t know what does.
Earlier this year, a video went viral of 11-Year-Old Luke Chacko belting “Let It Go” in front of Frozen star Idina Menzel during a concert in Dallas.
Luke admits that the experience gave him strength as he’s been bullied at school having been called “gay” and “girl.” But Luke is strong. As he tells Ellen, “I’m a man of steel. These words can come at me and bounce back off. I’m like a rubber man of steel.”
Oh – and he has his own squad. “I have at least 12 people in my squad at school.”
Ellen invited the young guy to reprise his performance on her show this week, but the big moment was Idina herself showing up to surprise him.
This is awesome.
And, you’ve just GOT to see him kill “Let It Go” on national TV! You are not ready for this 🙂
With over 2.8 million views, Seth Hancock has gone viral (with artistic assistance from Jason Du Puy) with his fabulous drag performance of “Let It Go” from FROZEN.
Not just another lip-dub; watch for the special effects 🙂
This performance took place at the October 5th “Best In Drag Show” – an outrageous annual beauty pageant spoof for Aid For AIDS, a program of Alliance for Housing and Healing. This year’s event raised over $400,000.
