'Frozen' Movie Online, 'Let It Go,' Soundtrack & Film: Disney Movie Becomes Fifth-Highest Grossing Film of All Time
The movie with the song that that we just can't "let go" of has officially become the fifth-highest grossing film of all time.
As you can probably guess from the title of this article, we're talking about "Frozen."
Last year, it was Disney's "Iron Man 3" that took the No. 5 spot in big screen history with a whopping total of $1.215 billion. But fast forward to this year; it is "Frozen" that's taking the fifth spot and beating out "Iron Man 3 with an even bigger total of $1.219 billion.
Yes, we wrote billion, not million. We'll give you a moment to let that sink in.
Deadline reported that "Frozen's" success has much to do with the Japanese admiration for the film. In Japan, "Frozen" remains at number one for 11 consecutive weeks so far.
It now stands as the No. 4 film of all time in Japan and Disney's largest grosser of all time in the country. It is also the No. 3 Western movie, only behind "Titanic" and "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."
The stats don't just stop there though.
Frozen may take fifth place as the highest grossing film globally, but it is first place when it comes to the category of highest-grossing animated films, according to Variety.
Disney's "Toy Story 3" used to be top dog with $1.063 billion worldwide, but it just couldn't stand a chance to Disney's almighty "Frozen."
Notice how we wrote Disney twice? Safe to say, Disney is indeed "winning."
Disney's "Frozen" was released at the El Capitan Theatre on Nov. 19, 2013, and later released in the U.S. on Nov. 27 of the same year.
The animated film features a star-studded cast including Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, Josh Gad, and Santino Fontana.
In addition to its financial success, the movie also dominated during awards season this year. The film won two Academy awards, a Golden Globe award, a BAFTA award, five Annie Awards, and two Critics' Choice awards.
