“Catching Fire” Too Hot for “Frozen” at Weekend Box Office

“Frozen” definitely made its presence felt at the Friday box office, but the presence was not powerful enough to usurp number one from “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”

The film, which opened Wednesday, added an additional $26.9 million to its cumulative gross. Now at $53.5 million, that total could reach $100 million by the end of the weekend.

But the success is far larger for “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” which added another $31.3 million to its haul Friday. To date, the blockbuster has raked in $253.2 million at the domestic box office.

“Thor: The Dark World” ($4.5 million), “The Best Man Holiday” ($3.4 million) and “Delivery Man” ($2.7 million) completed the top five. Thanksgiving week releases “Homefront” ($2.6 million) and “Black Nativity” ($1.6 million) placed sixth and eighth with “The Book Thief” ($1.9 million) in between.
