'Frozen' Proves To Be The Shining Moment On An 'Ice Cold' Albums Chart

April 17th, 2014 9:08am EDT
Well, another week and another chart and guess who’s on top – yep you guessed it, the Frozen Soundtrack. While sales aren’t exactly hot across the board, the additional 133,000 copies that the unstoppable soundtrack sold are solid, particularly compared to the rest of the albums. How sound is 133,000 copies? Well according to Billboard, Pharrell ascended back to his peak position (no. 2) this week, selling 29,000 copies. Talk about April being the month of the music sales drought!

Honestly, the news on the charts isn’t good, particularly since a holdover like G I R L outsold the new entr...

April 16th, 2014 9:30pm EDT
The Frozen soundtrack has landed a 10th week at number one on the U.S. album chart.

Over 133,000 copies were sold in the past week, taking the album's tally past the two million mark.

The soundtrack, which features 2014's Best Song Oscar winner Let It Go by Idina Menzel, is now one of just 11 albums to have spent at least 10 weeks at the top of the Billboard 200 since the new chart era began in 1991. Only four of those 11 albums have been soundtracks: Frozen, The Bodyguard, Titanic and The Lion King, which also spent 10 weeks at number one.

March 31st, 2014 3:34pm EDT
This year's Best Animated Feature Oscar-winner Frozen has topped another hit Disney Film -- "Toy Story 3" -- on the all time list of the highest-grossing animated films of all time.

The instant classic, based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale "The Snow Queen," has grossed $1.07 billion worldwide and counting, moving into 10th place on the all-time list behind "The Dark Knight Rises."

The film features characters voiced by Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell and recently opened in Japan, where it's expected to pull in enough to climb past the third film in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilog...

Pharrell Williams
Pharrell Williams has scored a fifth week at number one on the U.S. pop charts as he prepares for another battle with Idina Menzel.

Williams' Despicable Me 2 tune Happy missed out on an Oscar for Best Song earlier this month (Mar14) when Menzel's Frozen theme Let It Go claimed the gold - and now the two stars are set for another battle on the Billboard Hot 100.

Menzel's song has charged into the new top five and she is expected to challenge for the number one spot next week.

Meanwhile, John Legend's All of Me climbs to two on the countdown, switching spots with Katy Perry's Dark Horse.

Frozen still box office gold in Far East

March 25th, 2014 4:10am EDT
Frozen has scored another huge week at the international box office after landing Japan's biggest-opening this year (14).

The Oscar winner, which features characters voiced by Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, is on course to become Disney's biggest hit in the country after its second-weekend takings surpassed those of its debut.

Frozen has pulled in over $29 million (£18 million) in just 10 days in Japan and experts there predict it will take over from Toy Story 3 as the country's biggest Disney hit by the end of its run in cinemas.

Earlier this month (Mar14), Frozen also broke several box...

8 Things You Need To Know About The Beautiful And Talented 'Froz
The 2014 Oscars ceremony was a banner moment for the Walt Disney Company. The House of Mouse received official confirmation that its storied animation studio has finally rekindled its glory days. "Frozen" won best animated feature and the movie's main theme song, "Let It Go" won best song.

The success of "Let It Go" can be attributed largely to "Frozen" star Idina Menzel, who voices Elsa in the film. Menzel brought the house down when she sung the song at the Oscars. Menzel's song is the biggest hit Disney has had arguably since the days of Elton John and "The Lion King" soundtrack.

Idina Menzel: 'John Travolta and I are buddies'

March 21st, 2014 7:00pm EDT
John Travolta
Singer/actress Idina Menzel has laughed off John Travolta's embarrassing Oscars slip-up after he mispronounced her name during the live telecast, insisting she and the actor are "buddies".

The Grease star took the stage at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre on 2 March (14) to introduce the Broadway favourite's Let It Go performance from Frozen, which went on to win the Best Original Song award, but he got tangled up over Menzel's name and called her "the wickedly talented, one and only Adele Dazeem".

The misreading turned the actor into the butt of jokes and even inspired a website for fans to 'Tr...

Kristen Bell had a drive to remember on her way to wedding

March 19th, 2014 9:30pm EDT
Kristen Bell
Actress Kristen Bell made special musical memories as she made her way to her wedding last year (Oct13) after creating a playlist of her favourite songs for the short journey.

The Frozen star wed Dax Shepard on a whim minutes after securing their marriage licence in Los Angeles and she admits it was the perfect day to say 'I do'.

She tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I was driving with this gorgeous man in a '67 Lincoln that he had rebuilt to be a 700-horsepower speed machine. We were listening to a playlist on the way to the courthouse.

"Martin Sexton, Brett Dennen... and Tyrone Wells. And...

Kristen Bell
Frozen star Kristen Bell regrets not cashing in on her YouTube fame after a video of her coming face-to-face with a sloth became an unlikely viral hit.

The actress was promoting her movie Big Miracle and running out of things to talk about when her then-fiance Dax Shepard persuaded her to show the video of her birthday gift from him during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Bell, who is smitten with sloths, had an emotional meltdown as she came face-to-face with her favourite creature - and it was all caught on film.

She tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I had no idea it would end u...

Pastor Accuses Disney's 'Frozen' Of Promoting Homosexuality & Bestiality

March 13th, 2014 8:32am EDT
Pastor Accuses Disney's 'Frozen' Of Promoting Homosexuality & Be
A couple of Christian radio hosts believe that the Disney animated film "Frozen" encourages homosexuality and bestiality.

Pastor Kevin Swanson of the Reformation Church said on March 5, "You wonder sometimes if maybe there's something very evil happening here. I wonder if people are thinking: 'You know I think this cute little movie is going to indoctrinate my 5-year-old to be a lesbian or treat homosexuality or bestiality in a light sort of way.'"

The film, which has made over $1 billion worldwide, centers on a young girl named Anna who goes on a quest with mountain man Kristoff and his ...

John Travolta
John Travolta has broken his silence after becoming the butt of jokes following his misreading of singer Idina Menzel's name at the Oscars on Sunday night (02Mar14).

The Grease star took the stage at the Dolby Theatre to introduce the Broadway favourite's Let It Go performance from Frozen, which went on to win the Best Song award, but he got tangled up over Menzel's name and called her "the wickedly talented, one and only Adele Nazeem".

Box Office Predictions: 'Non-Stop' Track To No. 1

February 28th, 2014 12:20pm EST
1) Non-Stop- 30M Weekend, 30M Total

Non-Stop is definitely on track to dethrone The Lego Movie at the top spot. It even has a mediocre, not terrible RT score of 48%, which is almost on par with Neeson’s last February opening, Unknown. Unknown opened after Neeson had one Taken behind him. Now Neeson has become a 1st quarter superstar with films like Taken, Unknown, and The Grey all doing decent numbers. For this outing, he’s paired up with Julianne Moore, which gives him a solid #2 to bank off of. With the rest of the films in the marketplace doing kinda dismal box office, it’s hard to beli...

Frozen racks up fifth week at number one on Billboard 200

February 26th, 2014 8:40pm EST
The soundtrack to hit Disney film Frozen has returned to the top of America's albums chart to score a fifth non-consecutive week at number one.

The feat makes Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel's Frozen the first soundtrack in 15 years to reach the five-week mark since the tunes to Titanic ruled the Billboard 200 for 16 weeks straight in 1998.

Last week's (19Feb14) most popular album, Eric Church's The Outsiders, slipped to number two, while fellow country artist Cole Swindell's eponymous release was a new entry at three.

The Now 49 compilation dropped to four, while Beyonce's self-titled alb...

It's 'Frozen' Soundtrack At The Top of The Billboard Charts Again!

February 26th, 2014 4:41pm EST
The Frozen Soundtrack is sort of like winter itself – it just don’t stop! Once more, Frozen finds itself atop the Billboard 200 Albums Chart selling 89,000 copies. It is surprising that Frozen was able to rise to the top once more, particularly after Eric Church blew the competition out of the water with last weeks no. 1 debuting The Outsiders, which had sold 288,000 copies. This week, Church takes a step back to no. 2 with only 74,000 copies sold… yuck! Country newbie Cole Swindell debuts respectably with 63,000 copies of Cole Swindell, good for a no. 3 bow. Issues – an up and coming ...

Eric Church Gets It Done At No. 1 Once More

February 20th, 2014 5:00am EST
Eric Church
Let the “Church” say yes… Corny, I know. But one of country’s rising stars, Eric Church, just continues to rise. The Outsiders gives Church his second no. 1 album, selling a healthy 288,000 copies. Sub 100K weeks are done, at least this week. How does The Outsiders’ numbers compare to the numbers that greeted Chief? Well ole boy “Doubled Up”… or nearly doubled up (145,000 copies). In a slow weak for new releases, well, Church was the bright spot. Compilations continue to do soundly though, as Frozen Soundtrack sold another 100,000 (no. 2) and Now 49 sold 77,000 copies after a no. 1 de...

Frozen becomes South Korea's second biggest foreign film

February 20th, 2014 3:10am EST
Hit animated movie Frozen has become South Korea's second biggest foreign film ever.

The movie, featuring the voices of new parents Kristen Bell and Josh Gad, has raked in almost $70 million (£44 million) at the local box office to pass Iron Man 3 as the nation's number two imported film.

Only Avatar has had more success at the cinema in South Korea.

Frozen is on course to become one of only nine movies - the first animated - to have been seen on the big screen in South Korea by 10 million film fans.

Eric Church scores biggest sales week of 2014 to top U.S. album chart

February 20th, 2014 3:10am EST
Eric Church
Country music star Eric Church has signalled the end of a winter albums sales slump in America by taking his new release The Outsiders to the top of the Billboard 200 countdown with the highest weekly figure of the year so far.

The album debuts at number one with 288,000 copies sold in its first week, becoming the chart's biggest seller since Beyonce's self-titled release scored 310,000 sales in its second week on the countdown in December (13).

It's Church's second chart-topper - 2011's Chief also hit the top spot.

There was no tight race for the top this week - the Frozen soundtrack is...

Box Office Predictions: ‘Robocop’ Or ‘Lego’?

February 14th, 2014 9:18am EST
Box Office Predictions: ‘Robocop’ Or ‘Lego’?
1) The Lego Movie- 47M Weekend, 126M Total

I’m predicting a decent drop for The Lego Movie, as the winter storm barraging the country seems to be affecting box office already. Many theatres in affected areas are closed, and some theatres will see limited attendance anyway as people don’t want to go outside. For those that do, I’m sure The Lego Movie will remain a top choice.

2) Robocop- 21M Weekend, 25M Total

Robocop won’t beat The Lego Movie. I know I made it seem like it might, but it won’t. Sorry. I wouldn’t have predicted it anyway, and then I saw the mid-week grosses (Robocop opened...

February 12th, 2014 8:30pm EST
The latest NOW compilation has ended the big freeze at the top of the U.S. album charts - the Frozen soundtrack is no longer number one.

The Now 49 hits collection takes over almost 15 years to the day since the first ever compilation first entered the top 10 in January, 1999.

The Frozen soundtrack slides to two after a four week reign atop the Billboard 200.

The soundtrack for Disney's animated hit "Frozen" is once again number one on the album chart. It's the first film album to spend at least three weeks on top of the Billboard 200 since "High School Musical 2" spent four weeks at number one in 2007.

Coming in at number two is the 2014 Grammy Nominees compilation, followed by Beyonce's self-titled album. A Great Big World's debut disc, "Is Anybody Out There?" debuted at number four. Bruce Springsteen's "High Hopes," last week's number-one album, fell to eight on the chart.

January 29th, 2014 8:40pm EST
The Frozen soundtrack has returned to the top of the U.S. album chart for a third week at number one.
