Disney's new release Frozen 2 trampled its competitors to top North American box offices over the weekend, taking in an estimated $127 million, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations said Sunday.

"Frozen 2" continues to reign at the box office for a second weekend in a row. In North America, the film minted a total of $202.3 million finishing Thanksgiving with a collection of $14.7 million, just behind the holiday record set by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ($14.9 million) in 2013, without adjusting for inflation. Pixar and Disney's The Incredibles 2 flew past $200 million in four days in mid-June 2018. Opening on Wednesday, the film has grossed a total of $41.7 million domestically so far for a $70million worldwide total. It has already earned $739 million globally and should certainly surpass the original's totals.

"Murder mysteries have always been enormously popular, but cinematically they had become fairly predictable and a little less interesting", said Joe Drake, chairman of the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group. Production companies include Makeready and Bron Creative. "We are off to a fantastic start and expect a very strong holiday multiple given the word of mouth on the movie". Lakeith Stanfield, Daniel Craig and Ana de Armas also star. The film, produced by Lionsgate, MRC and T-Street for about $40 million, received an A- Cinemascore and a 95% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The film earned $17.8 million in the United Kingdom and $13.4 million in France.
