Lousy weather is messing with things for me in terms of connectivity today, so a slimmed-down post. With the holiday week coming up for Thanksgiving in just a few days, there’s always a load of movies out on the weekend before and then for Thanksgiving itself. Disney’s bringing out of Frozen 2 this weekend was a no-brainer and it landed with a strong $127 million. With some initial numbers that had people pulling back on their estimates, this is definitely a good weekend for Disney and for the film – even with critical reaction being mixed.
This weekend also saw the debut of A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood which came in at third place for a $13.5 million debut. And STX brought out 21 Bridges, finally taking that trailer out of rotation, where it landed with $9.3 million.
Ford v. Ferrari nabbed the second-place spot at $16 million to provide some good counterprogramming to all the kids off to see Frozen 2.
This coming week sees Queen & Slim coming out on Wednesday while Knives Out lands as well, both of which are going wide.
