'Moana' Sails To No. 1 with $28.4 Million for Second Weekend Box Office

'Moana' Sails To No. 1 with $28.4 Million for Second Weekend Box Office

Disney's Moana easily topped the domestic box office for its second week in a row, with a catch of $28.4 million.

On a traditionally sleepy weekend between major holidays, the Disney animated film did strong business, dropping just 50 percent from its opening weekend. That's even better than Disney's record-breaking animated hit, Frozen, which dropped 53 percent in its second week after Thanksgiving in 2013.

Moana has earned $119.9 million domestically and $177.4 million globally. Overseas, the film launched in five new markets (France, Spain, the U.K., Russia and Mexico) to join China, where it bowed last weekend. China posted an estimated $5.5 million for the weekend (a drop-off of just 55 percent) for a cume of $21.3 million in the country.

Disney also landed in the top five twice this weekend, with its Marvel film Doctor Strange taking in $6.5 million. With a domestic cume of $215.3 million, the Benedict Cumberbatch-starrer has now passed 2013's Thor: The Dark World ($206 million). Doctor Strange also has grossed $634.9 million globally to surpass 2010's Iron Man 2 ($624 million).
