Pop Films Make Box Office Headlines

Disney’s Frozen and Warner Bros.’ The LEGO Movie reached box office milestones this weekend.

Frozen became the top-grossing animated film of all time, beating out the previous title holder and fellow Disney/Pixar title Toy Story 3. The film has earned $1.072 billion worldwide according to BoxOffice Mojo, making it the tenth most successful film ever. Frozen is also the first film from Disney Animation Studios to surpass $1 billion dollars.

Also this weekend, The LEGO Movie became the first film of 2014 to surpass $400 million at the global box office. The animated film, which opened in February has taken in $248.3 million domestically and $152.2 million internationally to-date.

Newcomer, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, from Walt Disney’s Marvel looks to be another licensed film success, having already garnered $75.2 million since opening overseas last Wednesday, slightly less than Iron Man 2 and Thor: The Dark World did in their first weekends abroad, but still strong. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens domestically this week.
