After crossing the unprecedented $10B milestone worldwide last weekend, becoming the first studio ever to do so, Disney has bragging rights to another notch in its belt as Frozen 2 topped $1B global on Saturday. This means that the Mouse has roared to have six movies over $1B in 2019. The international box office portion of Elsa’s reign is $666M with $366.5M domestic for a worldwide cume of $1.033B. Frozen 2 went out in a different release pattern to that of the original, which took 15 weeks to get to $1B, whereas the current movie has done it in just four frames. There are still markets to come on F2 including Brazil in January. The current weekend was worth $55.7M from 48 material markets (95% of the offshore landscape). The global session was $74.9M.

Refresh for latest…: As global turnstiles start greasing up for next week’s Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, audiences are continuing to warm up to the two current titles in wide release: Sony’s Jumanji: The Next Level and Disney’s Frozen 2.

For a movie that may not have been made if not for leaked test footage, Deadpool is proved to be a box office gamble that has already paid off in spades. The superhero adventure has taken in $236.8 million domestically and $256.2 million internationally for a global total of $493 million, and it will likely cross the $500 million milestone sometime this week. Heading into its third frame in theaters, Deadpool will face three new releases at the box office this weekend, Lionsgate's Gods of Egypt, 20th Century Fox's Eddie the Eagle and Open Road Films' Triple 9. If the projections at Pro.BoxOffice.com are accurate, Deadpool should have no trouble winning for a third weekend in a row. While Deadpool has had success beyond most analysts' expectations, its second weekend drop of 57.4% could mean that it may not have as much staying power in theaters.
