Lionsgate’s “Knives Out” and Universal Pictures’ “Queen & Slim” closed the November box office this weekend. Both movies were hoping to topple Disney’s “Frozen 2,” which dominated the Thanksgiving holiday this year, but neither of the two films could beat Disney’s latest blockbuster.
“Frozen II” won the weekend for the second week in a row with $85.2M across 4,440 locations. After two weeks, the movie has already made over $287.5M domestically, and the film is the new Thanksgiving champ after topping “The Hunger Games” franchise. Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee directed “Frozen 2” for the studio, and the film features the voice talents of Evan Rachel Wood, Kristen Bell, Sterling K. Brown, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, and Idina Menzel. “Knives Out” managed to bring in $27M across 3,461 locations, and the mystery-thriller was number-one new release of the week. 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. “Ford v Ferrari” dropped to third-place with a $13.2M weekend, which raises the film’s three week domestic total to just over $81M. James Mangold directed “Ford v Ferrari,” and the movie stars Christian Bale and Matt Damon
Sony Pictures’ “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” took fourth-place overall on the domestic charts with an $11.8M weekend. The film, now in its second week in theaters, has made over $34.3M domestically for the studio. Marielle Heller directed “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” and the movie stars Tom Hanks, Matthew Rhys, Susan Kelechi Watson, and Chris Cooper. The new drama “Queen & Slim,” from Universal Pictures, landed in fifth-place on the charts this week with an $11.7M debut across 1,690 locations. Melina Matsoukas directed “Queen & Slim,” and the movie features Jodie Turner-Smith, Chloë Sevigny, Daniel Kaluuya, Indya Moore, Bokeem Woodbine, and Karen Kaia Livers.
December is going to be a hectic month at the box office. Before “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” opens against “CATS” on December 20th, you’ll have the chance to see “Jumanji 2,” “Playmobil: The Movie,” “The Aeronauts,” “Black Christmas,” “Richard Jewell,” “Uncut Gems,” “Bombshell,” and “Seberg.”
