“Frozen 2” topped the box office for a second time and set a whopping record on Thanksgiving weekend.
Disney’s ice princess sequel brought in $85.3 million in the U.S. and Canada over the weekend and earned an unprecedented $132.7 million from Wednesday through Sunday. It has earned $288 million domestically in its 10 days of release.
The record was previously held by “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” which grossed $109.9 million in 2013.
“Knives Out,” the innovative and star-heavy whodunit from director Rian Johnson, rode strong reviews and word of mouth to a $27 million weekend and a five-day total of $41.7 million that easily earned back its budget.

“Ford v Ferrari” was third in its third weekend of release with $13.2 million.
The weekend’s other newcomer, “Queen & Slim,” finished fifth with $11.7 million.
