Disney should feel good about its frosty feature this frame. Among a crowded slate of newcomers, the Mouse’s “Frozen” appears to be the only one to break into the top five.
Leading the holdovers, Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is burning bright for the second weekend with an anticipated $110 million in five days. With a little luck, the dystopian actioner may cross $300 million domestically and should definitely cross $500 million worldwide by Monday.
Programming for families with children who may be too young for “Catching Fire,” “Frozen” is headed for second with around $90 million Wednesday-Sunday. The record-holders for Thanksgiving openers include “Toy Story 2″ and “Tangled” in the first and second slots, so Disney has proven its strategy with this frame and it’s paying off handsomely for “Frozen.”
