Saturday Report: Disney’s Frozen II added another $7.84 million on Friday, beginning its third weekend of domestic play with an estimated $310.8 million 15-day running cume. The blockbuster animated sequel will again win the weekend for a third time with what’s estimated at $35 million currently.





Knives Out is holding up very well to begin its second weekend, registering $4.138 million on Friday and giving it a 10-day domestic tally of $53.5 million thus far. The Rian Johnson film is targeting a sophomore frame of $14.2 million as strong word of mouth continues to propel it.





Queen & Slim posted $1.93 million in third place on Friday, bringing its own 10-day domestic haul to a healthy $22.3 million. The prestige title from director Melina Matsoukas continues to generate positive word of mouth as a counter-programming option for adult audiences. We’re projecting a second weekend around $6.4 million.





Ford v Ferrari wasn’t far behind in fourth place yesterday, tacking on another $1.871 million and bringing its domestic cume to $86.4 million through 22 days. Weekend estimates stand around $6.6 million currently.





As far as this weekend’s openers are concerned, Dark Waters expanded from 94 to 2,011 locations yesterday. The film took in $1.39 million on Friday and looks to be heading for a $4.5 million weekend.





Meanwhile, Playmobil: The Movie bowed to $167,000 from 2,337 locations. Opening weekend looks to register around $750K based on our current projections.
