Frozen 2 remains victorious at box office, Playmobil bombs”

But it was Frozen 2's $919 million that pushed Disney's total to $9.997 billion over the weekend.

Per Variety, Disney is expected to become the first studio in history to surpass $10 million at the global box office thanks to a string of succuessful blockbusters this year, including Avengers: Endgame, The Lion King, Toy Story 4, and Aladdin.

Since "Frozen 2" is still enticing ticket buyers with young kids and the plastic toy company is relatively unknown compared to a brand like Lego (which Warner Bros successfully mined into multiple feature films), "Playmobil" sputtered in spectacular fashion. STX's Playmobil earned $811,000 from 2,337 theaters with a budget of $75 million.

Lucky for STX, the company only paid to distribute the movie and doesn't have a financial stake.

Lionsgate's Knives Out continued to rake it in as it held onto the #2 spot in its second week with $14.1 million domestically for a $63.4 million total and $124 million worldwide, making it ever more likely that Rian Johnson will make a sequel. The film stars Daniel Craig - a detective with a droll, over-the-top Southern accent -Jamie Lee Curtis and Chris Evans in an Agatha Christie-worthy tale that critics have called "deliciously entertaining".

In its fourth week of release, "Ford Vs Ferrari" managed to come in third place this weekend.

After a month in theatres, the racing drama with Christian Bale and Matt Damon amassed $91 million at the domestic box office.

In fifth place, Sony's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood earned $5.2 million in its third outing. The Mister Rogers film starring Tom Hanks has generated US$43.1 million so far.
