More Moolah

Early indications are more ka-ching! for Diz Co.

The sing-along version of “Frozen” was leading advance weekend sales at Fandango, the online ticket broker said Wednesday, ahead of the current No. 1 film “Ride Along” and the weekend’s two wide openers, “That Awkward Moment” and “Labor Day.”

Super Bowl weekend can be a strange one at the multiplexes, with much of America distracted by the big game. And while advance sales don’t always translate into box office, it looks like “Frozen” is going to make some more noise. ...

While all the Moms and Dads are swilling adult beverages and cheering on their preferred team on the wall-mounted flat screen, the children will be at the neighborhood multiplex, giving their throats a treat.

Or so the Mouse anticipates.

Add On: And already it's a record-breaker:

Frozen has become the top-grossing original animated feature of all time. The film has reached a domestic box office total of $347,899,011, passing Finding Nemo’s original domestic box office of $339,714,978 to reach the top of the charts. By original, we’re excluding sequels and any box office take from re-releases. ...

Also remember, that doesn't account for inflation.
