Disney's 'Moana' Tops U.S. Box Office In Its Third Week; Surpasses 'Doctor Strange' Worldwide
Disney’s latest movie, “Moana” is still making waves in the box office all over the world. After a spectacular breakthrough during its release on Thanksgiving, the animated film still reigns on its third week. Not only that, it has surpassed another great movie.
"Moana" has just earned $18.1 million more in the weekend box office for its third week running since it made its premiere in theaters on Nov. 23. With that feat, it has now grossed $145 million in North America in just 17 days and has already earned $293.8 million in other countries, currently totaling to a worldwide earn of $438.8 million. It has continuously stayed on top of the box office records in the U.S. and Canada.
Aside from that, after surpassing the record of Warner Bros. film, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, “Moana” has also already just surpassed another Disney movie, the Marvel film “Doctor Strange”, according to Forbes. “Doctor Strange” landed fifth place in this weekend’s box office record after garnering $4.6 million only, which is a far cry from the recent record of “Moana”. But “Doctor Strange” has already gained worldwide box office total of $644.5 million, and with a $165 million production against it, “Moana” may still take the cake and surpass it in total box office earnings with the way the said animated movie is going.
The weekend box office, which was led by “Moana”, sees “Office Christmas Party” placing second after gathering $17.6 million on its opening week, which was released on Dec. 9. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” comes in at third place with $10.8 million and “Arrival” takes the fourth spot with $5.6 million. Despite the impending release of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, “Moana” is expected to still do well in the box office even if there will be a drop in the viewership ratings.
Walt Disney’s upcoming movie, “Rogue One” will be making its worldwide premiere this Dec. 16 and it is expected to attract another round of millions of viewers. This is great news for Disney as it has been reported earlier that it might just overtake the annual box office record of Universal Studios thanks to all the hit movies Disney released this year. “Moana” may not have been as big as “Frozen” but it has become one of the top recent Disney movies, receiving several favorable reviews for its entertaining story and beautiful soundtrack.
