Frozen 2 skates to Thanksgiving record

Frozen 2 has kept a wintry wind at its back in its second week, setting a Thanksgiving record with a whopping box office bounty in North America.

Disney's new set of adventures for Anna, Elsa and Olaf brought in $US85.3 million ($A126 million) in the US and Canada at the weekend and earned an unprecedented $US132.7 million for the holiday frame of Wednesday through Sunday, according to studio estimates.

The first Frozen opened on Thanksgiving in 2013 but the sequel opened a week before the holiday, making it poised for a huge second week, with out-of-school kids happy to see it a second or a third time.

The weekend's take came on top of a record-burying opening weekend of $US127 million debut domestically and $US350.2 million worldwide that made it the highest-grossing global debut for any animated film globally and the largest opening for any for any Walt Disney Animation Studios release.

The sequel to 2013's Frozen has more than showed the six years since has brought no thaw. It has already earned $US739 million globally and should certainly surpass the original's totals.

Knives Out, the whodunit from writer and director Rian Johnson, rode great reviews and strong social media buzz to a $US27 million weekend and a five-day domestic total of $US41.7 million that easily earned back its budget.

The film's vast and eclectic cast includes Ana de Armas, Christopher Plummer, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette and Chris Evans.

The weekend's other newcomer, Queen & Slim, finished down in fifth with $US11.7 million but with a limited number of screens.

Ford v Ferrari rolled along in its third weekend of release, finishing in third place with $US13.2 million.

Tom Hanks' Mister Rogers story, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, also hummed along in its second weekend, earning $US11.8 million to put it fourth at the domestic box office.
