Deadline tells us:

... Mr Peabody & Sherman added an estimated $11.4M to break the $100M mark internationally. The overseas cume is now $102.8M from 63 markets. The movie opened in Malyasia and South Africa this weekend and has three territories left to go. It had a strong hold in Spain, adding $5.65M on 506 screens for the No. 2 spot with no drop from its 1st frame. ...

Rio 2, which lands in Brazil next weekend, opened in its first two markets this weekend: Russia and Ukraine. ... Locals flocked to see the animated sequel which took an estimated $10.43M for the No. 1 slot. ...

Frozen, which fell out of the Top 10 domestic after a staggering 17 straight weeks, has hit the $1.05B mark globally. It is now the 12th highest grossing movie of all time, skating past Star Wars Episode I: Phantom Menace, Jurassic Park, and Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It’s still the 2nd highest grossing animated release of all-time behind Toy Story 3. Disney chief Bob Iger said last week he expected Frozen to surpass TS3, and it looks like it’s headed that way with strong numbers out of Japan. The film added $9M this week in 22 territories. In its 2nd Japanese frame, it jumped 7% over last weekend with an estimated $8M and another No. 1 perf. To outmaneuver TS3, Frozen will have to make roughly another $13M.

Warner’s The Lego Movie has Oz (April 3) and Germany (April 10) yet to go, but added $4.5M in 54 markets this weekend for a $147.6M estimated cume. ...

It's always fine to remember that Disney Studio Chief Richard Ross put Frozen onto the shelf during its development. (Some moves are more brilliant than others.)
