WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Frozen II threepeats atop the chart with another 34.7MM on a 60 percent drop, in what has become the traditionally dead post-hilday weekend.It will likely break the billion-dollar mark worldwide by next weekend.  Knives Out places with 14.2MM on a 47 percent drop; it's likely well in the black against a mere 40MM budget (the cast must have worked cheap).  The real question is whether its legs hold up with a Jumanji and a Star Wars coming.  Ford v Ferrari shows with 6.5MM on a 50 percent drop. This one could still make a bit of money, even against a 97MM budget, but awards season iay be the decifding factor in that total.  Queen & Slim holds on to the fourth slot with 6.5MM on a 45 percent drop and 26MM total so far against a 20MM budget.  A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood rounds out the Top Five with 5.2MM on a 56 percent drop; it has a 43MM total so far against a 25MM budget.  Below the fold, this weekend's sole wide release, Playmobil, earned the grand sum of 670K from over 2000 screens.
