BOX OFFICE: ‘Frozen 2’ $40 million, ‘Playmobil” a near total write off

I was an audience of one for a matinee showing of STX’s “The Playmobil Movie” Friday.

A toy-based musical fantasy with Anya Taylor whatsit and Jim Gaffigan and Daniel Radcliffe voicing characters, it cost $40 million and didn’t sell enough tickets Friday to cover the catering at the voice-over recording studio. A coupe of hundred thousand.


It should clear $1 million. But will it?

Review to come shortly.

All the animation movie money is going to “Frozen 2,” another $40 mill weekend.

“Knives Out” another $15, “Neighborhood” and “Ford v Ferrari” are dueling for third in the low teens, “Dark Waters” cracks the top six.
