Frozen had a great opening over the Thanksgiving holiday, but even so it ended up second on the US box office chart due to the continuing success of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. However this weekend the roles were reversed as Frozen snuck past Catching Fire with $31 million versus Hunger Games 2’s $27 million.
It’s good news for Disney as it’s one of the best holds following Thanksgiving ever and suggests the movie will continue to do well going into Christmas.
The only new entry on the chart was the Christian Bale starrer Out Of The Furnace, which may have placed third, but still tanked pretty badly taking just $5.3 million. Some had thought the movie might be an awards contender, but it’s unlikely it’ll be in the running and will probably end up a complete flop, especially as it seems to be getting pretty lousy word of mouth.
Take a look below for the US box office top 10 for the weekend of December 6th-9th.
