Disney's animated musical "Frozen" has become the top-grossing animated film in box office history. The feature has now made $1.072 billion globally, beating "Toy Story 3's" previous record of $1.063 billion in 2010.
Loosely based upon the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale "The Snow Queen," "Frozen" opened in late November. "Frozen" has made $398.4 million in North America plus $674 million at the global box office.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Loosely based upon the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale "The Snow Queen," "Frozen" opened in late November. "Frozen" has made $398.4 million in North America plus $674 million at the global box office.
Staying in the top 10 in both the U.S. and Canada it's not hard to find "Frozen" still playing theatrically long after its release. "Frozen" is also the 10th biggest grossing film in box office history.
It is better to light one tiny candle than to curse the darkness --
"Frozen" scooped two Oscars earlier this year, winning the awards for best animated feature and best original song.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, "Frozen" is facing stiff competition from Warner Bros and Village Roadshow's "The Lego Movie," which was released in February and has already made more than $400 million globally, the first film of 2014 to do so.
Adding to this is the fact that "The Lego Movie" has not opened everywhere yet. It's due to be released in Australia on Thursday and in Germany next week.
"Frozen's" soundtrack has also been a huge success - it is currently top of the US Billboard chart and sold 202,000 copies last week, according to figures from Nielsen SoundScan. That marked its biggest week in sales since its release on 25 November.
The film has been met with controversy by some conservative audiences. Commentators point out that the main character of Elsa is born different from other people -- in this case with "cryo-kinetic" powers -- but ultimately accepts who she is. Further, Elsa doesn't have any male suitors (as her sister does), and elsewhere in the film there is a very brief moment, involving a male character saying "Hi, family" to a male adult and several children, that some viewers have interpreted as a reference to a pair of gay parents.
