Los Angeles - Disney's animated movie Frozen surpassed the $1bn mark at the global box office over the weekend, Disney said in a statement.

The movie earned $388.8m domestically and $611.5m  internationally, according to the statement. Only 18 movies have passed the 1-billion-dollar mark. Avatar (2009), which raked in $2.8bn, and Titanic (1997), which made $2.2bn, are the top two, according to boxofficemojo.com.

The first movie to bring in more than $1bn was Jurassic Park (1993).

The latest movie before Frozen to cross that line was Iron Man 3, which passed it just three weeks after being released. It took Frozen 15 weeks to take in 1bn dollars at the box office.

The animated movie has yet to play in Japan. It is scheduled to open there on 14 March. Frozen received Oscars on Sunday for best original song, Let It Go, and for best animated feature.
