FROZEN Eclipses IRON MAN 3 to Become Fifth Highest Grossing Film of All Time Worldwide

Disney’s Frozen continues to steamroll any and everything in its path.  Though the film first opened all the way back in November and is already out on home video stateside (and dominating everything in that market too), the pic is continuing its international rollout and recently hit another box office milestone.  At a worldwide gross of $1.219 billion, Frozen has now become the fifth highest grossing film of all time, besting Iron Man 3’s worldwide gross of $1.215 billion.  That’s a hefty sum for any film, but it’s refreshing to see a non-sequel, non-franchise property doing so well.

Hit the jump for more, including where Frozen stands on the all-time domestic chart.

frozen-movie-imageWith $1.219 billion worldwide, Frozen now ranks #5 on the all-time chart, behind only Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, The Avengers, Titanic, and of course, Avatar.  It’s unlikely that Frozen will be able to top Harry Potter’s $1.341 billion without some sort of re-release, but the number five spot of all time is still quite an accomplishment.

On the all-time domestic chart, however, Frozen was unable to crack the Top 10.  It’s stateside total stands at $400.5 million, putting it at number 19 on the chart, just behind Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and in front of Deathly Hallows – Part 2.

Disney has admirably not rushed into developing a sequel just yet, as they’re currently focused on putting together a Broadway musical adaptation of the film, but Frozen has invaded the zeitgeist in more ways than one.  Frozen merchandise continues to be one of the most in-demand items for youngsters, and on the next season of ABC’s Disney-mining fantasy series Once Upon a Time, Elsa is poised to make her live-action debut.
