WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:  Frozen II dominates the chart with 127MM, the biggest debut for  Disney Animation and the third best animated opening ever (behind Pixar's The Incredibles 2 and Finding Dory). It's also the 5th biggest November opening behind a Hunger Games and three Twilight flicks.  It did 223MM in overseas markets, for a worldwide total of 350MM.  Ford v Ferrari places with 16MM on a 49 percent drop from its debut; its 103MM worldwide gross (roughly its production budget) suggests success for the studio (Fox/Mouse), but the upcoming holiday weekend may really tell the tale.  A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood shows with 13.5MM, which is fine against a 25MM budget.  21 Bridges debuts in the fourth slot wih 9.3MM, which is iffy against a 33MM budget, given less-than-fresh reviews.  Midway rounds out the Top Five with another 4.7MM but is going to have problems recouping its 100MM production budget.
