Make no mistake; Disney’s Frozen is a box office behemoth. The film picked up two well-deserved Oscars last night for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Song, and this weekend the pic crossed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office with $1,000.2 billion. That puts the fairy tale musical at number 18 on the all-time box office chart, sandwiched between The Dark Knight at 17 with $1,004.6 and The Lion King at 19 with $987.5 million. This also makes Frozen the second film of 2013 to join the Billion Dollar Club, as Iron Man 3 (also released by Disney) currently holds the number 5 slot with a whopping $1,215.4 billion worldwide.
Broadway veteran Idina Menzel performed the Oscar-winning Frozen song “Let It Go” during the Academy Awards ceremony last night, but it was clear that she had trouble hearing herself in her in-ear monitor, resulting in a sadly disappointing performance. You can watch the “Let It Go” clip from the film after the jump if you need a refresher of just how amazing Menzel’s voice really is. Frozen will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on March 18th, but you can click here to pre-order.
