Disney’s “Frozen 2” revived the sluggish November box office this weekend, opening against Tom Hanks’ “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” and Chadwick Boseman’s “21 Bridges.” Disney will most likely repeat a Frozen 2 box office win next weekend, but the movie will battle “Playmobile: The Movie,” “Jumanji 2,” “Richard Jewwell,” “Uncut Gems,” “Bombshell,” and “Black Christmas” in early December.
Disney’s “Frozen 2” opened across 4,440 locations this week, bringing in $127M domestically. Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee directed “Frozen 2,” and the film features the voice talents of Evan Rachel Wood, Kristen Bell, Sterling K. Brown, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, and Idina Menzel. The new release pushed “Ford v Ferrari,” from Disney’s own Twentieth Century Fox, down to second-place on the domestic chart, and that movie made $16M this weekend. James Mangold directed “Ford v Ferrari,” and the movie stars Christian Bale and Matt Damon. Sony Pictures’ “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” debuted in third-place overall this weekend, making $13.5M domestically across 3,235 locations. Marielle Heller directed “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” and the movie stars Tom Hanks, Matthew Rhys, Susan Kelechi Watson, and Chris Cooper.
STX’s “21 Bridges” opened in fourth-place, starting slow with a $9.3M opening weekend in 2,665 locations. Brian Kirk directed “21 Bridges,” and the movie features Chadwick Boseman, Sienna Miller, and J.K. Simmons. “Midway,” from Lionsgate, took fifth-place overall this weekend, bringing in $4.7M at 2,627 locations.
These movies will battle the all-star cast of “Knives Out” next weekend, as well as the drama “Queen & Slim.” That match-up will close out the November box office. Rian Johnson wrote and directed “Knives Out,” and the movie stars Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Noah Segan, Edi Patterson, Riki Lindhome, Jaeden Martell, and Christopher Plummer. Melina Matsoukas directed “Queen & Slim,” and the movie features Jodie Turner-Smith, Chloë Sevigny, Daniel Kaluuya, Indya Moore, Bokeem Woodbine, and Karen Kaia Livers.
