Frozen Earns $1 Billion At The Worldwide Box Office

Frozen Earns $1 Billion At The Worldwide Box Office

Let it go, Toy Story 3. You may have grossed $1.063 billion over the course of your box office run, but you have been beaten - and by a musical, too. After opening in its final market, Japan, Frozen has earned $398.4 million domestically and $674 million internationally to become the tenth biggest movie of all time with $1.072 billion in the kitty and counting.

The new number one animated film of all time still has rivals when inflation is taken into account - Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs' had $910m in the US alone if you adjust for inflation - but according to industry arbiters BoxOfficeMojo, Frozen is now the 'toon to beat.

Of course, this means that Frozen is Disney Animation Studios' first film to join the billion dollar club. Directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee must be very happy people indeed, as this comes a month after their Best Animated Film Oscar win (and that other little bald golden man for Adele Nazeem Idina Menzel).

Still showing in Japan, where it currently stands at $50.5 million, Frozen is now set to overtake the number nine spot, The Dark Knight Rises, which made $1.084 billion.
