Frozen 2, and Jumanji: The Next Level

  • Jumanji: The Next Level opened December 13 in India
  • Frozen 2 released November 22 in cinemas in India
  • Knives Out movie arrived November 29 in cinemas in India

Thanks to this past weekend, Frozen 2 is now a billion-dollar movie, a record sixth in the same year for its studio Disney. It took just four weekends for Frozen 2 to cross that milestone, as opposed to 15 weeks for its 2013 predecessor, Frozen. That's partly down to the fact that Frozen 2 had a much wider opening early on. Meanwhile, the weekend's new big movie — Jumanji: The Next Level, starring Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart among others — opened to $213 million (about Rs. 1,510 crores) worldwide, surpassing expectations at home. And lastly, the Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, and Ana de Armas-starrer murder mystery Knives Out has now climbed to $162.2 million (about Rs. 1,150 crores) worldwide.
