Frozen Becomes Fifth Highest-Grossing Movie of All Time as Adam Sandler's Blended Bombs
Moviegoers just can't let Frozen go. The celebrated animated movie brought in another $31,000 this weekend from just the 73 theaters that it remains in, more than six months after it first made its debut.
As of this week, Frozen is now the fifth highest-grossing movie of all time. The frosty flick boasts a stunning total of $1,219,274,000 in international ticket sales, bringing it into the top five.
The number means Frozen just edged out Iron Man 3, which drops to No. 6 on the list, with a worldwide box office of $1,215,439,994. Frozen is currently bested by Avatar at No. 1 with $2.7 billion, Titanic with $2.18 billion, Marvel's The Avengers with $1.5 billion, and Harry Potter and the Death Hallows - Part 2 at No. 4 with $1.34 billion.
The beloved movie, which features the voices of Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, and Josh Gad, has been hugely successful for Disney on its $150 million budget. The story of sisters Anna and Elsa also holds the title of the highest-grossing animated film of all time.
The rom-com, which opened to scathing reviews from critics, made just $14.23 million domestically on its opening weekend, bringing in an additional $2.1 million abroad. When adjusted for ticket price inflation, Blended is one of Sandler's worst openings.
Blended, which filmed on an operating budget of $40 million, was panned by The New York Times' A.O. Scott, who wrote simply of the film, "Blended is rated PG-13 (Parents strongly cautioned). It will make your children stupid."
