"The increased foot traffic brought to theaters courtesy of "Frozen 2" should spark renewed interest in the big screen experience as enthusiastic moviegoers are exposed to in-theater marketing and trailers for the upcoming slate of films on a greater level due to the popularity of this one massive blockbuster", Dergarabedian said.

While put on the calendar to draw in adults while kids were watching and re-watching "Frozen 2", "Knives Out" proved to be more than a niche picture.

Frozen 2 is continuing its box office domination!

Disney's new release Frozen 2 trampled its competitors to top North American box offices over the weekend, taking in an estimated $127 million, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations said Sunday. The opening for the "Frozen 2" buried several records at the American and worldwide box office, paving the way for another hit. "Frozen 2" is tracking to wind up the five-day holiday period with a record-setting $135 million, $25 million more than "Catching Fire". Knives Out, Rian Johnson's mystery comedy, took second place in Friday's $ 10.7 million revenue and is expected to bring $ 41 million to 3,391 destinations in North America during its opening weekend ( which has been extended to 5 days). It follows a family gathering where the patriarch dies and stars Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson and Toni Collette. The movie cost $40 million and looks to be a triumph for original content at multiplexes.

Second up is the first Frozen, which earned $93.7 million for the five days in 2013 (unlike the sequel, Frozen didn't open nationwide until the Wednesday before the holiday).

Universal and Makeready's Queen & Slim - helmed by acclaimed music video director Melina Matsoukas in her feature directorial debut from a script by Lena Waithe - is also overperforming. "Solidified 2" took in nearly $24 million on Wednesday, beating "Bursting Into flames" by $4 million for the best household net on the day preceding Thanksgiving.

Ford v Ferrari continues its success in theaters and took the third spot this weekend with $18.9 million. Tom Hanks' feel-good film about Mister Rogers made $11.8 million over the traditional weekend and $17.2 million over the holidays. Heading into the long weekend, overall ticket sales were behind over 7%, according to Comscore. While the movie has received mixed reviews, it has been holding steady at the box office.
